On the trackpad, slide your finger to select a date.
Click the Date field again.
Perform one of the following actions:

    To receive a prompt when your device detects a new time zone, change the Auto Update Time Zone field to Prompt.
    To have your device update the time zone automatically when it detects a new time zone, change the Auto Update Time Zone field to On.

Press the Menu key.
Click Save.

You need to update the time zone automatically.

But when you connect to your device to your laptop, it will goes to your home time.

In Desktop Manager/Synchronize, you have the option to "Update Device's Date and Time" when you sync. If this box is checked, every time you connect to Desktop Manager, either to sync your Blackberry or to back-up, Desktop Manager will set your Blackberry to your computer time. If you left your laptop set to your home time zone, then synching will cause your Blackberry to change back to your home time zone. If you select "Network Time" as your Blackberry time source, you don't need this setting. Unchecking it will keep Desktop Manager from changing your Blackberry time.
