I surmise the same thing applies to the BlackBerry.

I found it easier to just make the adjustment in my mind (7 central at home, so iit is 8 here) than to mess almost 800 appointments. HTH.

I found this in the 7100i user manual. Couldnt copy text from the user manual PDF so attached an image. It is from page #22.

Keep in mind that all appointments already created have your previous time zone already setup in them. So changing the local time shouldnt affect them.
