device time vs network time
tried every setting but my network time is 1 hour off my device time - any ideas?
Is the network time correct or the device time? If the network time is correct make sure the Date/Time Source is set to Network and then try pressing the blackberry (menu) button and select update time. That synchronizes the device time to the network time on my Bold.
I had a similar issue with my BB Pearl.
It kept setting my time zone to Eniwetok (-12)
I read somewhere how to change the settings to the following:
In my Date / Time settings on the phone, I changed "Date/Time Source" to "BlackBerry"
On my Desktop Manager I clicked on "Synchronize" and unchecked where it shows "Update Device Date and Time"
This worked for me, it stopped my BB time from getting messed up.
you do have the correct time zone selected right?
i see RED...
That's why I asked what state it (bb) was in. Maybe in Arizona, which does not observe daylight savings. Or a similar situation. Only an hour off implies something simple (maybe).
I've had the same issue. In Australia, Optus' HQ is in a state that observes Daylight Savings, but the state that I live in doesn't. Yet their network time was the same in both states.
I have set mine to device time and when I syncronise, using Desktop manager, I make sure that I have ticked "update device date and time" in the syncronise panel of Desktop Manager.
You also need to make sure that the correct time zone is set in the Date/Time section of your options on your device.
Hope that helps.
BB 7100g (R.I.P.)
BB Pearl 8100 (R.I.P.)
BB BOLD 9000 (on the shelf)
BB STORM (R.I.P.)
I am in IL and have a feeling that I need to turn off the daylight savings aspect - how do i do that?
I have the right time zone selected, chose both (in DM) update device date/time. on my device, no matter whether I choose Network or Blackberry and update the time, the "time" on the top portion reads 10:06PM and the network time reads 11:07PM - it's always an hour off. On my curve's home screen, the correct time is showing
in device options click date and time
change the time zone field
to get the date and time from the wireless network change the date and time field to network. press menu key click update time, and save.

packet - thanks for trying to help but these are the basic steps to set it up initially and I have done all these steps.
I used to have the same problem with my pearl also. If I fixed it myself I don't know what I did, if not then it fixed itself.
Are you in "Central" or "Mountain" time zone? It's Central in Ill isn't it?
This is also exactly my problem - in NM. Started about three weeks ago. Cannot fix it no matter how much I mess with the settings or DM. I think it is a network problem.

Ex, right now it's: 12:10pm. (time will change while I post this )
I have "Eastern Time(-5)"
Date/Time Source: Network
Network Time: 1:10pm
This occurred when DST took place.
When you do "Update Time", even though I have network, and the network time is "an hour forward", it still updates me to the right time. Try it to verify.
See, everything is ok It's your carrier. They have not changed to DST, because of where their central servers are, and your device (based on zone) has. (or vice versa).
