I know that Telstra in Australia sends both.  My current phone would get the 
correct details after traveling between timezones when I was on that network.
I will find out in a few weeks if Optus does the same.

I want to play with the GPS stuff at a later date, but it is a powerdraw as 
well.  In the first instance I would like the datetime to come from the phone 
network when the network supports it.
