I have recently moved from the Eastern to the Pacific timezone. I'm trying to get some info on what the cleanest, most hassle free way is to update my timezones between my BB and my Mac. I have a BB Pearl 8130, and the latest version of iCal and OSX Leopard on my Mac. I use Missing Sync to sync my data. I currently have timezone support DIS-abled in iCal. Is it as simple as just resetting the Mac and the BB to PST? I've tried this before and it was a nightmare as all my calendar events shifted by the difference between the timezones and pain fixing it all. That's one of the reasons I have timezone support dis-abled in iCal. I also know that the BB is pretty picky about how it handles timezones, especially if you change your timezone and that the BB does not automatically update it's time off of the local carrier. (I think it's insane that it doesn't do this but that's the way it is.) So does anyone have any pointers on clean ways to do this without having my existing calendar events all shift by 3 hours? I'd prefer input from those who have actually dealt with this rather than just kind hearted folks trying to be helpful thanks.
