Changed timezone after sync



Recently, I am experiencing a strange issue after sync with the blackberry desktop. After sync, my BB (storm2) displays a different day and time and it turns out my timezone has been changed, in my case from Amsterdam to Eniwetok (wherever that might be). Obviously, I checked the settings on both my BB and computer (smae timezones etc). What's wrong ?

Re: Changed timezone after sync

I am now getting exactly the same issue after syncing with DM v6, the time zone changes from London to Eniwetok. Has anybody any ideas?

Hi there!

I've just found this and it worked over a BB 9780:



"If your BlackBerry automatically reverts the time zone when connecting to your PC you need to change an option within Desktop Manager. Open DM > click Synchronize > uncheck the option to update date and time when connected."


Good luck!
