    Tough question

    hi all,

    having a really tough question plz help with ur suggestions
    how can i get correct timezone value without using

    1.getRawOffset() which return a long value works fine but for some device like n72,e60 (there might be more devices) does not return correct value
    if time zone is GMT+5:30 value returned by this method should be 19800000
    but it returns value 18000000 which nothing but GMT+5;

    2.latitude and longitude should not be the alternative which will create some kind of complications and dependency on the operator

    so all experts help me resolving this problem

    My best advice will not make you happy.

    I suggest you design your application so that it does rely on knowing the timezone. Many low-end devices do not know what timezone they are in. Timezone support in Symbian (as you are discovering) can be a bit ropey. The 6600, if I recall correctly, does not believe there is any land west of Greenwich...

    Or... add a timezone setting to the application.
