Cellular Phones/Call Time and DST


If a Blackberry 8703e in 2007 had to be manualy set to daylight savings time, would the Verizon call record display the time calls were made and received in DST hours or pre DST hours for a cell phone that was not manualy changed to DST?

All records by Verizon reflect the actual time a call is made. It doesn't matter whether or not you have set the date and time manually and doesn't matter about daylight savings time settings. The official call date/time is that of the carrier and that goes by the atomic clock. The actual device's time has no bearing on the official time of a call. I hope that helps. Thanks.
