Synchronization messes up time zones and scrambles calendar

[ Edited ]

Hi, my problem is I live in Venezuela, and 6 months ago, Venezuela modified its time zone to GMT-04:30. Microsoft already has honored this change, and created a new time zone with that offset.

 

Apparently, RIM hasn't. So I use the standard GMT-04:00 in my Pearl and set it not to synchronize time with any server.

 

But when I try to synchronize with outlook, it apparently works fine, but the pearl changed zone to some strange GMT -10 african zone, and each entry in the calendar is Physicaly moved to the new time, obviously messing up my calendar.

 

How do I Approach RIM in order for them to create the revised time zone for Venezuela ??

 

Any other Ideas ?

Do what I did - turn off time synch on the desktop, and just configure the phone to synch with the network.  It's likely that your phone network has the proper time and date.
