I am going to be traveling next week and am putting everything in my calendar.
I am taking off at am (EST) and landing at am (CST). I think right now my time settings are set to AT&T Network.
Both the device time and the time zone (tz) can be changed under options\date/time settings.
Dealing with more than one tz can be very confusing so when entering out of town appointments, I always specify the actual time along with its associated tz.
Then make the appointments when you need them to be for where you're going.
For time zone change trips I add the time in the name of the appointment just in case I forget to change the timezone or it is set to that timezone and gets changed.
Why do I need to manually change the time zone if it will update automatically? I find that uless an appointment actually traverses TZ, like a call between cities, it's easier to just enter everything in local time, and change the device time. Everything is personal use done via the BB calendar on my 8310. But what happens now if the time changes automatically? It leaves my time zone as EST but pushes the time 1 hour back because it is synching with either blackberry or network time? Nothing I'm doing is enterprise and I don't use outlook.
What does changing the calendar time zone actually do for each appointment? Time zone will not update automatically (by itself). Look up duration, and in Outlook calendar specify the duration. In your Outlook EDT based it will say that the appointment lasts until . When you arrive in your CDT location and set the time zone, EDT becomes CDT (correctly) and you are on schedule. Everything is personal use done via the BB calendar on my 8310. So when you travel, you have to go to time settings, and then either change the time or the TZ.
When that happens the device time will advance one hour as will all appointment display times.
(Now the appointment that showed as noon Central will show as 1pm Eastern.) This keeps me on time for events back home as well as those in the destination tz.
It can be confusing when scheduling new appointments for a time zone you're not in.
Fortunately you don't have to do these adjustments in your head. But that still doesn't help me with the fact I take off in EST and land in CST.
Adjust your clock and try again." error, strangely the date and time settings were accurate and even network fetched clock sync did not make Whats App buzz.
