Default silly question

if you fly to a different time zone can you avoid paying a phone bill for a few hours since your phone adjusts to whatever time zone you’re in?

i'm pretty sure the bill is probably based on some sort of set timezone, which is probably the time zone of where you signed the contract, or just based on UTC. Your phone does not "talk back" to the carrier to update your billing cycle based on timezone. Your billing cycle would most likely not get adjusted unless you asked the carrier, or signed a new contract, thus updating the billing cycle to the new contract start date. At best, if this worked, you'd be delaying your bill by what, 12-13 hours? I don't see the purpose

Kinda like if you were born in a plane that just began to travel from NYC, and then arrive 2 hours later into LA, you would be -1 hour old because timezone tactics

your phone typically won't switch time zones in airplane mode
