Thumbs down Time Zones

Please Login to Remove!

I have a 7100g that I just received from work. The time doesnt update when you change time zones. I have the date time source set to Network and have been told by blackberry that it you have to update manually. Othere people have the old software version and aparently it does update the time automatically, why in the world would they disable that feature? Does anyone know a work around?

As far as I know, it's always been a manual change. At least with the 7510's and 7520's that I support....

What a terrible feature not to have! They clearly have it built into the software...just turn it on!

This has been discussed to death. Some people want it; some don't. Most people can deal with having to change the time zone when the travel.

Is it the time or time zone that won't change?

AFAIK, when supported, the carriers send a time zone adjusted time signal, not UT.

TZ processing is one of those recurring nightmares in the PDA world. Say you are in EST and you are going to the West coast next week. You set an appt for 1300. That appt is in the BB as 1800 UT. You land and decide to just change the TZ. All of a sudden, that appt now appears as 1000 PST. Plus, if you are set to get the time off the network, you'll be back a further 3 hours. There are so many TZ ignorant phones out there that the carriers simply send the local time.

TZ in appt only works when the appt is set and the participants are not travelling.
