    Hey Zemog!

    Welcome to PinStack!

    The time on your device does not automatically change when you change time zones. That would be cool if it did, but unfortunately that is something you need to do manually.

    This just drives me crazy. Sprint would do it automatically on their network but T-Mobile does not. How hard is it to have a system time update function? but then I guess there is the phone side of the equation. Perhaps there is some software available where you can quickly change zones.

    BlackBerry devices do not adjust for time zones and it is like that by design. It has to do with roaming charges and also with isssues it can cause with calendar and message databases on the device.

    If you really want to make the time change, adjust your time/date settings and set the source to your carrier instead of blackberry and it will automatically change, like the razors

    No, unfortunately this doesn't do anything. The OP even stated that he did switch that and it didn't help. I have mine set to network and it doesn't change time zones when I'm flying although my other phones have.
