Time zone won't set to Arizona

I noticed this morning that the clock was an hour ahead even though I'm in Arizona and we don't change time with DST here.  The phone is set to MST and won't let me select Arizona time.  I've unchecked Automatic Timezone and Automatic Dater & Time to no avail.  I can select any time zone other than Arizona.   I can set the phone time manually but would prefer to have it adjust automatically as I travel. 

Any suggestion on how to correct this problem?

My phone has Arizona time setting. It's a G2. It starts out Alaska, Pacific Time, Tijuana then Arizona.

My phone has Arizona as a choice, it just won't accept it when I select it.

It says MST but the time is correct for Arizona if you select Arizona.

MST shows as 1 hour ahead of local time and the phone will not let me select Arizona.  If I select Arizona it simply reverts back to MST and 1 hour ahead of actual time here.

Look in Settings > Clock find the setting for Daylight savings if it's checked un-check it see if it makes the Correction if not Power cycle the phone try it again.. if your still seeing issues you might have to run a clearing of the system cache.. if the time still is showing wrong try switching from 12 to 24 hour time then back.. b33

B33, rebooting the phone seems to have done the trick.  Thanks for the suggestion.  As a long time Windows user I should have thought of that as the fix for Android too!
