    Time Zone???

    Advertisement



    Ok I feel like an idiot. Have had my 8130 since December. Running 4.3.0.127. I guess this is the first time I've taken it out of my time zone. Shouldn't it automatically changed the time on the main screen when I cross into another zone? I have it set (under options>date/time) for my time zone (eastern) and under date/time source i have it set for Network. Under that it shows the network time as being the current time zone (central) but the front screen still shows eastern time. Frustrated!!!!

    Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks stackers!

    Nope. You have to manually change the time zones, sorry.

    Man that's a drag! My wife's crappy glyde does it automatically, as did my old junk phones.

    Thanks RoGro.

    Well, this is a "SmartPhone", meaning it is more than just a simple device for making phone calls.

    Imagine if you're someone (like me) who uses the calendar for meetings, phone call reminders, etc, and you happen to be in another time zone. If the time zone were to change that would seriously mess with the events on your calendar, thus one of the reasons, I suppose, that BlackBerrys do not automatically adjust.

    I thought the same thing the first trip I had out of the central zone. But I don't mind now. Also, I like that events are be set to a specific zone. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
