Timezone Setting For Australian Eastern States + Twitter issue



Something happened and my timezone changed and has thrown my email days out of whack.

On my phone the 8900 (curve) there aren't any Australian options other than on the Western side (Perth).

1. What should I use for Australia so it can go back to normal please?

2. Also the twitter timing is off. Doesn't show any postings in minutes but hours.

Rang the carrier Optus and they had no idea.


Please help.

Re: Timezone Setting For Australian Eastern States + Twitter issue

Hello SophieC,


Welcome to BlackBerry Community Support Forums. 


1. Can you please clarify which Time Zone you are located in?


2. What version of Twitter are you using? Go to Options>Device>Application Management to check.


I am looking forward to your response.
