To choose the method for setting the time, go to Options in the menu and choose Date/Time. Then go to Date/Time Source and choose it. Then you can choose to use Network, Blackberry or Off. The Network option keeps it updated off the wireless tower you are currently connected to. Choosing Blackberry has it update off the Blackberry servers, which should be getting time off time servers. Choosing Off means the time is never updated with the time servers.
If you choose the Off option, and the Blackberry does not keep time accurately, you will need to go to Date/Time to set it. Click on the Time entry, and you can change the time. You can also choose your time zone. It will automatically know when to start and end daylight savings, just like your personal computer.
Changing the time on a PC with Windows just involves clicking on the time on the bottom right of the screen and then choosing Change Date and Time. You can choose to have it automatically synchronize with Internet time servers.
