    Timezone won't stay where I set it

    Advertisement



    Looking for help before I miss an appointment due to a changing time zone!

    I live in the Pacific Time zone (-8) and have set my Blackberry Pearl to that zone. However, during the day, perhaps during a hotsync, the zone changes to -12 (a country I've never heard of).

    Unless I notice that, the clock is all wrong. Forgive me in advance if I'm missed an answer in these forums, but I did search first.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    When you go into Options, Date/Time what is your date/time source? Mine is set to Blackberry. Also make sure the time on your PC is set correctly, this might be causing this too. Hopefully this helps. If not, try a battery pull

    That's the #1 culprit I have seen.

    I have a similar problem except i'm Perth, Western Australia(+8) and we have daylight saving( extra 1 hour). Every time i sync the time goes back to +8 time even though the computer knows it is daylight saving and shows the correct time. i've tried changing to source time to network which shows the correct time but the phone seems to ignore it. A little annoying except for the extra hour sleep in but the excuse is getting boring.

    Any insight would be appeciated.

    Sorry i've also changed the computer time away from daylight saving and adjusted it by an hour but after the sync it reverts back in time?
