2. From the Options screen, click Date/Time.

3. With the Time Zone field already selected, click the trackwheel and select ‘Change Option’.

    This Timezone feature would be nice if it didn’t make the unacceptable change to all appointments in the calendar. For example: I life in San Diego and my home time zone is PST (-8). Last week I travelled to Tulsa/OK which is CST (-6). So, arriving in Tulsa, I change the Time setting to CST, so that my BB 8700c would show the local time. Now I look at my calendar and noticed that all my appointments got also changed forward by 2 hrs. For example, before my trip I had my flight departure set as a 2:02pm appointment; after the time zone change from -8 to -6, this appoinment now shows up as 4:02pm, which could have made me miss my flight, if I hadn’t noticed this strange and unacceptable behaviour.
    This never happened with my Palm OS PDA.
