Does anyone know of a way of having the calendar not change appointment times when you change time zones?

When my travel schedule is downloaded to the calendar from our travel itinarary (we use infotriever) it enters the local time for the event (flight arrivals, departures etc.) however, when I change the time zone for the device all of those times get changed by the time difference. Since they were entered in local time for the event rather than relative to my local time when they were entered the reuslting time shift makes thme off by 1,2 or 3 hours. It would seem like there must be a way to have it not shift the time in the calendar letting one always enter the times as local time. While the calendar does allow yo to specify the time zone, the application that loads these settings into my calendar does not. THis is probably because MS Outlook does not have a time zone slot in its schedule while the BB does. Anyone find a solution or a work around?

I have the same issue; I wish I had a workaround. I tend to manually reset flight times when I arrive at the destination just so they are correct. But that is not even a good workaround.

Too bad there isn't a "Do not change Time Zones" flag in Outlook and the BB....
