    I got a refurbed Pearl and it did exacty the same thing. After dealing with techs on phone for days and doing all sorts of things they shipped me another phone. New phone has done it once but that's all so far.

    I think it all started when I began tethering to my laptop.

    try not tethering for a few days, and make sure time settings on the laptop are correct.

    that's my thoughts.
    maybe someone else may chime in soon

    Re: Date/Time Changing

    Thanks I'll do that. but what worries me the most is that the Date/Time source is messed up. I dont think Blackberry and T-Moble networks are both out of wack.

    sounds like the time zone on your laptop is set to those islands

    Re: Date/Time Changing

    It is because the PC is changing the time. Go OPTIONS >> Date/Time >> Date/Time Source should be set to Network. Set correct time zone and then Save and exit.
    In Desktop Manager right click Synchronize and uncheck Update Device's Date and Time.

    Sorry I should have added: "If you have this glitch, it doesn't matter what time zone is set on you PC, it will always choose Eniwetok as the Blackberry's time zone. "

    Rhecb has it right, its the version of desktop manager, uncheck the Udpate Device and that will fix it.
