When using Saskatchewan (-6) as the Time Zone, the BlackBerry smartphone shows the correct time, however SMS and calendar appointments are one hour ahead.

This is caused by the time zone not using Daylight Saving Time.
This is a previously reported issue that is being investigated by our development team. A resolution is currently unavailable.

Select Mountain (-7 GMT) as the Time Zone on the smartphone using these steps:

  1. Open the Settings application.
  2. Select Date and Time.
  3. Change the Time Zone to Mountain Time (-7).
