Set inexistent timezone

Hi guys, support,


My timezone is Recife (GMT -3). But it is not listed.


I used to set Brasilia (GMT  -3), as it is capital of Brazil. But now Brasilia is at DST and is one hour more than Recife.


The other cities with GMT -3 are:



Buenos Aires




None of which is from Brasil.


Manaus is a Brazilian city with GMT -4. But since it has no DST and Blackberry think it has, it is now the same hour as Recife. So I'm using it as workaround of the problem.


Please, I don't want workarounds. I just want to set Recife time. How can I do that and keep it automatic?


I tried to set to manual, but than one of my apps stoped work (Google Authenticator is time sensible, and I need it to check my emails).

This product has serious problems. Why don't you FML. ("L" of lighthouse meaning mobile).
