The Samsung t219 supports Automatic Update of Time and Date (a.k.a NITZ).  Automatic Update of Time and Date is a power-on feature. This feature  automatically updates the time and date upon power up instead so that you do not  need to update it manually. For example, when you enter a different time zone  and power on your phone, the phone will automatically update to the new time  zone. This feature is network-dependent and may not be available in all areas.
