Please put yourself in the position that you're a company in Australia, and you
have an international audience.
You allow users to specify the birthday, and you offer SMS reminders. Surely,
you need to make them at the correct time, including timezone.

The user having to manually specify a timezone for every size is cumbersome and
error-prone. The webserver just assuming a timezone based on IP-address is even
more error-prone. The OS (and therefore browser) knows best.
