    Like i previously said, its your carrier that control the devices time. when you have it set to take off the network then it will take what your carrier is pushing.

    Actually, it doesn't. I set it to Network, and there's [still] a one hour difference. It seems to be only syncing the minutes, not the hours. Even with a Menu -> Update Time performed.

    For whatever reason, on Rogers in Canada, my network time has been out by one hour (behind) for at least the last several years. This isn't a phone issue, because in addition to my BB, it also showed as that on my Nokia E62, my Moto Razr v3i, and other "dumber, cheaper phones" that I may have had before that.

    Unless I was on Mountain Time (which I am not), if I used Network time, I would be out by on hour. In fact, last year when I was working in Alberta (which is on Mountain time), I was foolish enough to be fiddling with my phone (the Nokia E62) and decided to change my time settings to sync with the Network. Well, let me tell you I was quite PO'd that all my calendar appointments changed by an hour, and all day events rolled into the next day, etc. Not only that, changing the time back did not reverse the damage done to my calendar. Granted, this was not the BB but the Nokia (I bought the BB shortly after that but not because of this incident).

    Perhaps network time transmitted from cell towers in the US doesn't have this offset problem, but I for one, living where I do, cannot use Network time as an indicator of time zone change -- unless I move to Alberta. But then the time won't change automatically when I go to Manitoba where I live now (two provinces away) because it has the same network time. Wrong (for me) Network Time, but still Network Time. I'll stay manual, thank you very much.
    I am also on Rogers in canada and the network time does show 1 hour off but my device is patched for dst and everything so even with my source as network I have the proper time.

    With regards to the time of my network, this is correct because I have a number of other phones of varying makes and models on the same network that update just fine...

    It's just that this "feature" doesn't actually do what it's supposed to.

    I'm one of a rare breed - my home state (Queensland) is the only place in Australia and one of the few places in the world that still doesn't observe DST...

    It's funny, 'cause the Wife is strongly in favour of DST and when we still lived in Queensland (we recently moved for the first time in like, forever), we had some wonderful arguments about DST whenever the issue to introduce it or not came up in local politics. LOL

    Correction - the Pommies (English) used to drop of criminals (called "convicts" at the time) and leave them here - we weren't quite Australia yet!

    I am howver, highly impressed - many Americans and Canadians know little, if anything about Australia let alone its history...
