My very old Sony Z5 (from the pre smart phone era) had a very cool feature. Two clocks with each an adjustable time zone. So let's say that I'm travelling from Amsterdam (GMT +1) to Lisbon (GMT +0) which I actually do regularly I leave one clock on Amsterdam time and set the other clock to Lisbon time. As soon as I get out of the plane I just swap clocks. When I travel to my brother in the US I set one clock to NY time. The Sony always showed both clocks. That way you don't accidentally wake up your spouse in Holland. You can show a second clock on the Blackberry by
Just a pity that you can't swap both clocks. Could you please add that feature RIM? The Japanese got it right the first time. So forget about switching time zones, this works very well and you don't have to do the math.
What would be even better is if the source of the time zone would not be limited to the network provider time (which is
not relayed here in Portugal) but also would use the GPS data to switch clocks!

Agree 100% with the others experiencing this problem. This has happened to me on multiple occasions. I came across this post expecting a solution, as I arrived at a 5pm appointment today that originally was for 4pm when I booked it away on business, missed it and have to reschedule. I just want the appointments to stay at the time I set them and the time zone update independently. Looking for this feature in the next phone.
The solution is use the time zone setting in the calendar and enter the appointment at the time it occurs in that time zone. All calendar appointment times will be correct regardless of time zone setting on the device.

No. I'm suggesting using the time zone setting in the calendar.
Say you have a flight departing the West coast USA at 7:00AM and your home time zone is different. You are entering your flight times as appointments. Set the start time of the appointment as 7:00AM, the duration equal to the flight time, and set the appointment time zone to Pacific time.
Do that and your calendar notifications will always occur at the appropriate time relative to the appointment, regardless of the time zone setting for the device clock.
If you need to do so, record the local time for the appointment in the notes.
