This has been discussed a lot on the forums. Basically, for the time being at least, this won't be 'fixed' on the 9000 (or any other model), because it is intended. A conscious decision was made by RIM to not have the device change times automatically based on cell tower / network time.
IIRC, the two most valid reasons I recall offhand were, 1) the havoc that automatic time zone changes can cause for calendar appointments / all day events, and 2) problems for users that live / commute in time-zone-border areas.
Until fairly recently, the BB was primarily a business device. Many of the capabilities of the BB (or incapabilities of the BB) are geared around security and business use, not consumer desires. While that certainly is changing, it won't happen overnight, nor will the focus shift away from security, reliability and business use.
I do agree with many though, in that the choice
would be nice; so that those that do not wish the time to change can have it set not to, and those that would like the time to change automatically, can.
