want automatic time with locked in (selected) timezone (Droid)

 Not sure who is responsible for the (in my mind) ridiculous decision
to disable the ability to choose desired timezone if automatic (use
system provided values) time preference is selected in my Droids
settings.  I need my phone to ALWAYS show Central time.  I do not know
if this is a Droid specific issue.

I should be able to choose my desired timezone and still have time
updated automatically regardless of my location.  I am a long haul
trucker and my logbook is always in Central Time.  I cannot be the
only person that would prefer this ability.

If anyone knows the proper and ultimate place to post my request/
COMPLAINT, please tell me.

Does it get to the home screen? (wallpaper, clock, etc.) If not, wait a
bit -- the first time you run the emulator, it takes a while to create all
the appropriate user and system disk images.

Is your activity installed?

Did you start your activity from the application drawer on the home screen?

2. What's about phone functions?

Android is supposed to be used on smartphones. Of course we like the
idea to have phones looking more similar to the PC we use, but they
should also work as phones. So, which is the set of phone functions?
Does it support any kind of phone numbers (not just USA)? What's about
the agenda, the functions to manage contacts? Most video I saw
highlights non-phone functions. I am very interested to those
functions because more and more phones looks like PC, they forget to
be phones too ;-)
