Default Storm Clock ???

Please Login to Remove!

Does the Storm Clock change time zones like a traditional cellphone? This is the only feature on my 8300 Blackberry that really sucks! I can upgrade to the storm but this will be a deal breaker for me.

Thanks for your help.

I don't believe it does. I believe you have to do it manually which changes all the appointment times etc to the new time zone.

It is not hard to change, you just go into options/date time/and select your time zone. It should change everything.

You can also select "Network" instead of "Blackberry' under Date/Time source and this will change your time to the time zone you are in, but I believe this might cause issues with appointments and such.

Dead on. Setting the time server to Blackberry will require you to change the time zones manually. Setting it to network will cause it to work like any other cell phone. Not so cool, since it won't handle calendar entries properly.

Ok thanks for the feedback. However, is there a clock program that will adjust to location? I travel a lot between time zone and somethings I am not sure what timezone I am in. Perfect world would be a clock that show home time and gps location time.
