I found unexpected behaviour when passing a timestamp.
timezone seems to always be GMT+0000 unless setTimezone() is set.

<?php

$MNTTZ
= new DateTimeZone('America/Denver');
$ts = 1336476757;

$dt = new DateTime("@$ts", $MNTTZ);
var_dump($dt->format('T'), $dt->format('U'));

$dt->setTimezone($MNTTZ);
var_dump($dt->format('T'), $dt->format('U'));

/** Output:
string(8) "GMT+0000"
string(10) "1336476757"
string(3) "MDT"
string(10) "1336476757"
**/

?>

The timestamp value represented by the DateTime object is not modified when you set the timezone using this method.  Only the timezone, and thus the resulting display formatting, is affected.

This can be seen using the following test code:
<?php
$MNTTZ
= new DateTimeZone('America/Denver');
$ESTTZ = new DateTimeZone('America/New_York');

$dt = new DateTime('11/24/2009 2:00 pm', $MNTTZ);
var_dump($dt->format(DATE_RFC822), $dt->format('U'));
$dt->setTimezone($ESTTZ);
var_dump($dt->format(DATE_RFC822), $dt->format('U'));

/** Output:
string(29) "Tue, 24 Nov 09 14:00:00 -0700"
string(10) "1259096400"
string(29) "Tue, 24 Nov 09 16:00:00 -0500"
string(10) "1259096400"
**/
?>

As such, you can use this to easily convert between timezones for display purposes.

<?php
$MNTTZ
= new DateTimeZone('America/Denver');
$ESTTZ = new DateTimeZone('America/New_York');

$dt = new DateTime('11/24/2009 2:00 pm', $MNTTZ);
var_dump($dt->format(DATE_RFC822), $dt->format('U'));
$dt->setTimezone($ESTTZ);
var_dump($dt->format(DATE_RFC822), $dt->format('U'));
?>
doesn't changes timestamp
But
<?php
$MNTTZ
= new DateTimeZone('America/Denver');
$ESTTZ = new DateTimeZone('-0500');

$dt = new DateTime('11/24/2009 2:00 pm', $MNTTZ);
var_dump($dt->format(DATE_RFC822), $dt->format('U'));
$dt->setTimezone($ESTTZ);
var_dump($dt->format(DATE_RFC822), $dt->format('U'));
?>
changes timestamp

It is possible to fix that by:
<?php
$timestamp
= $date->getTimestamp();
$date->setTimezone($value);
$date->setTimestamp($timestamp);
?>
But WTF???

In response to the other comments expressing surprise that changing the timezone does not affect the timestamp:

A UNIX timestamp is defined as the number of seconds that have elapsed since 00:00:00 (UTC), Thursday, 1 January 1970.

So: with respect to UTC. Always.

Calling setTimezone() never changes the actual "absolute", underlying, moment-in-time itself. It only changes the timezone you wish to "view" that moment "from". Consider the following:

<?php
// A time in London.
$datetime = new DateTime('2015-06-22T10:40:25', new DateTimeZone('Europe/London'));

// I wonder how that SAME moment-in-time would
// be described in other places around the world.
$datetime->setTimezone(new DateTimeZone('Australia/Sydney'));
print
$datetime->format('Y-m-d H:i:s (e)');
 
// 2015-06-22 19:40:25 (Australia/Sydney)

$datetime->setTimezone(new DateTimeZone('America/New_York'));
print
$datetime->format('Y-m-d H:i:s (e)');
 
// 2015-06-22 05:40:25 (America/New_York)

$datetime->setTimezone(new DateTimeZone('Asia/Calcutta'));
print
$datetime->format('Y-m-d H:i:s (e)');
 
// 2015-06-22 15:10:25 (Asia/Calcutta)
?>

Please note that ALL of these date strings unambiguously represent the exact same moment-in-time. Therefore, calling getTimestamp() at any stage will return the same result:

<?php
$datetime
->getTimestamp();
 
// 1434966025
?>
