    My clock on my iPhone is set to use 24 hour format, which I always want to be. I just hate AM/PM formats. Just hate it. Period.

    So, the event calendar does convert the time zone difference whenever the recipients send me scheduled time event only when they are in the 24 hour format. Examples are below.

    Event from 00:00 to 06:00 PDT >> Converts my time zone as When I click on that link, and select Create Event, it does convert to my time zone (09:00 to 15:00 Central Eastern European Time.), which is fine and all good.

    Event from 12:00am to 06:00am PDT >> Does NOT convert to my time zone. Just shows as 00:00 to 06:00.

    I also tested this by setting my clock on my iPhone back to AM/PM format, and still does not convert the time zones...

    So what is needed to be set here?

    The only time this works if the contacts sends me event times that are in 24 hour format only.
    And I also tested this myself as well.

    I also played around with the time zone override settings as well, but did not do the trick.

    Please help.
    Thanks!

    I want the 24 hour format and is ENABLED.. Please read my first thread above.
    My problem is, when certain contacts send my scheduled time events in AM/PM format, it does not convert it to my time zone.

    But when certain contacts send me events with 24 hour format, then it does convert to my time zone settings.

    Toggling ON and OFF the time format options in my phone does not help.

    Solved. The problem was that PDT was not included in the event time links. So in order for the calendar app to sense or convert the time zones the contacts must add whatever time zone code like PDT added to the event times if it's a link in the email.
