Default Blackberry set itself an hour behind??

Please Login to Remove!

So this morning I was late for work because somehow my blackberry (which I use as my alarm) set itself an hour behind. Like right now it's 10:33 and the phone says 9:33. Has anyone else had this happen to them? Why did it do this?

Go to Options > Date/Time. What's the Time Zone set to?

I'm going from my memory here but I think you have to synch it to the network, it doesn't do it automatically.

Also check the synchronize options in Desktop Manager. Some people run into this time switch problem if they have their PC set to a different time zone and have "Update device date and time" in the Synchronize options checked. Doesn't sound like that's the issue in this case, but something to consider.

if it happens all too often then as suggested do a software upgrade.
