Default Setting alarm clock in different time zone

Please Login to Remove!

I travel frequently and keep my BB (VZ9530) set to my home time zone (to keep the emails straight) - but I want to set the clock to display in the local time zone and set the alarm clock accordingly.

I haven't figured out how to do this without changing the time zone on the BB. I know that I can set the alarm clock to the time based on my home timezone but you wouldn't believe how many times I screw that up...

Suggestions?

Unless you set it to the time based on your home timezone you have to change the time zone. The time stamps on the emails will change but they will change back when you change the time zone again. The time stamp in the email headers will not change, though.

I agree with Maxima. This is pretty frustrating for people who travel and RIM really needs to address this in future software releases.

Default Is there a third party app for this?

Yes, I would like to see this simple functionality added to the BB Clock function. If not, I haven't found one that has both a world clock and alarms. Has anyone else?
