3. Press the Menu key, and select Save

Note: When travelling it may be necessary to change the time zone manually depending on the device settings. Please refer to KB10323 for more information.

CollapseAdditional Information
Note: If the date/time on your PC is incorrect and the BlackBerry Desktop Software is configured to automatically synchronize the date/time to the BlackBerry smartphone, this will cause the settings on the BlackBerry smartphone to be incorrect which will cause the log in error. Ensure that the time on the PC is correct, including any settings for Daylight Savings.

For information on configuring the date/time synchronization settings for BlackBerry Desktop Software, refer to the user guide for your specific version which can be found here.
