3) should work. most nokia phones have it as an option. however the operators dont send the right signal.
in fact theres no reason why phones these days shoudlnt just do ntp.
and hey they could try and pick up the radio time signal form rugby/frankfurt as well

i suspect there reeason it doesnt happen is because the users dont relaise they need it.

1) just have gps in them anyway. a couple of the bigger motorolas do. admiiitedly then soem clever way to transfer you geo data would then be good.

The operators in the US seem to send the right signals - when I visit my phone picks up the right time along with a network provider. However, when I get back to the UK I have to change the time back manually...
