8300 won't update when it arrives in new time zone

[ Edited ]
I have tried setting time source "network" and "Blackberry" but in either case, when I get to the new time zone the time on phone is from home local and does not update.  On Date/Time page network time is displayed for all locations but on front screen time is not updated.

Re: 8300 won't update when it arrives in new time zone

I was told by the Verizon Sales Rep, that RIM devices do not dynamically update time zones so as to not mess with your calendar apointments.  That by manually changing your time zone you are then aware that this happened and that your appointments are now in the correct time zone.

 

Seems like a "PAT" answer, at least you should be able to display the "network" time of the time zone your visiting.
