Relocated / Moved from Eastern Time Zone to Pacific Timezone Calendar Problem
I have searched high and low on the interwebs for this problem but not found an answer.
Won't someone please help me? I recently got a Blackberry Bold after my last breath with a Treo 650 (still having severe withdrawals due to so much missing functionality but that's another story). I synced up my Blackberry Bold before moving in New York and still have the same laptop.
HOWEVER, now on the west coast, when I changed my time zone to Pacific on my Blackberry (this has to be done manually on the blackberry), all my repeating calendar appointments have moved back by three hours. Basically the blackberry adjusted to reflect the time that it WOULD have happened. This is a huge nuisance because I actually had already set all my appointments to West Coast/No particular time zone since the Treo just updates to local network time and knows where it is.
The thing is that there are certain standing appointments or meetings that take place at 12 noon of whereever in the world I might be with my local people. There is a parking issue at 7am in the morning whether I'm in New York or in California (don't ask). These appointments have been on my multiple Palm systems for 10 years!! Anyway, now I wish I had waited to sync till moving but these were unforeseen issues since I knew not yet the wrath of the berry. ( I already experienced losing all my past appointments but luckily have backup on Palm desktop)
Can someone please tell me how to fix this problem. For now my workaround has been to let the Blackberry Bold stay on Eastern under Date/Time so that it thinks its on the East Coast but atleast all my appointments are coming up at the right time.
Do you think there is some way to fix this?? I just don't want to go back and change every appointment. All I want is for my 7am appt to still show at 7am but now on PST. Or my noon meeting to still be at noon whereever I am.
Maybe all I need to do is change the laptop time to West Coast and then re-sync?? [when I last synced to that laptop it was on East Coast time] I have since backed-up on a west-coast desktop but can't remember if I synced.
Much thanks in advance.

I didn't feel like reading your novel, especially after I read something about you saying Treo's are better... so I skimmed it and thought maybe this would help clear up some confusion:
Time Zone Calender Explaination.Him - 9800 Unlocked 18.104.22.1680 OS , 16Gb/C2 MicroSD <---> Her - 8900 UL 22.214.171.1245 OS , 8Gb/C6 Micro SD
"When in doubt, PULL THE FREAKIN BATTERY!!!"

So do all I need to do is set my laptop to Pacific time and Re-sync??
Will that help?
Problem is I already synced all the appointments into the new Blackberry. This is like something I need to know before syncing for the first time.
Please please help. Thanks!
