    I now have two iPhones for my business.

    On one (16Gb), I've added all the business meetings etc into iCal.

    Then sync'd with my laptop (iBook G4 with latest iTunes).

    Then sync'd the other (8Gb) iPhone so that all the calendars, personal, home and business, are on both phones and laptop.

    All times of meetings etc (for all three calendars) are fine on the 18Gb, but are 8hrs later on both the laptop and 8Gb phone.

    Have checked the time/date settings on all three, and they are all set to London, UK, with DST in effect.

    Have also tried sync'ing individual calendars to see if that makes a difference, but it doesn't.

    Any advice????

    For the iPhone, Go into Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars, and scroll right to the bottom of the page where it says "Time Zone Support". Make sure you have that set to London also, or I guess you could probably switch it off altogether.

    Not sure about the laptop.

    That's sorted it!

    The 16Gb phone was set to US timezone support, but the other phone was on london.

    Thanks for your help!
