    The time setting are controlled at:

    Options / Date/Time / Date/Time Source. The default is Network, but you can set it to BlackBerry or Off.

    The only time mine changes is the switch to and from Daylight Savings time when Network is selected.

    What difference does it make if BlackBerry is the time setting instead of Network?

    BB gets the time off the RIM server. Network gets the time from ur carrier.
    I've noticed BB's time is ahead like 3-4 mins.
    I run it on network and seems to be more accurate (verizon for me)

    If you have either your BlackBerry or your PC set to the wrong time zone, AND you have the Desktop Manager option to sync device time to PC time enabled, then whenever you sync your BlackBerry to your PC, the BlackBerry time zone will change to match the PC time zone. A common mistake is to choose Central America Time instead of Central Time (US&Canada). Both are GMT-6, but Central America does not observe DST.

    If you set your time source to either Network Time or BlackBerry time, there is no need to sync to PC time.

    Thanks.

    I did have mine set the BlackBerry, but it was showing same time as network.

    I never sync time on BB with PC. I have my PC time set to time.nist.gov, not time.windows.com.
