Hello again readers! Dear Berry is here once again with a mailbag full of BlackBerry questions and woes. Today's question comes from Atul who asks:
Would you please let me know how to setup two time zones in BB10?
Unlike BBOS, where it was possible to display two time zones in the native clock, BlackBerry 10 works a little differently. If you or a friend is traveling you may want to be cognizant of the time at both home and in the area you are in. In this respect, BlackBerry 10 created an entirely new tab, designated World Clock, within the clock application for users to quickly view the current time for a diverse selection of cities and countries.
Setting up this feature is rather simple and all that is required is following the steps below. So far, my clock has been updated with 15 different cities from around the globe with no alerts that I've reached a limit. However, I've observed that only major cities populate the list, so be sure to choose the nearest one to your location as a reference.
Add cities to the World Clock
- Tap on the clock icon on the homescreen
- From the bottom menu select World Clock
- Tap on the Add button and type in the name of a city or country in the search bar and select the one you want
- Once added, it will populate in the screen above
Remove cities from the list
- Tap the Edit button at the bottom of the screen
- Next to each city you would like to remove tap the "X" that appears on the same line
Using this method you can view multiple time zones on your devices and it will not affect the one set as the default. While I found the old method quite useful, it does display the information you require.
See you next time!
