By default, the date and time in the Samsung Galaxy SIV is set automatically so that the phone will allow the network to set the date and time for you. However, in case if you want to adjust the date and time or change the date and time format, you can do so with ease through the settings menu.

Below are the steps to do so:
  1. Go to Settings.
  2. Tap More tab.

  4. Change the date and time:
  5. To set the date and time automatically:

    • Clear the checkbox next to Automatic date and time to disable this option.
    • Tap Set date and then adjust the date by tapping the up arrow icon or the down arrow icon and then tap Set button.

    • Tap Select time zone and then select the required time zone from the list.
  8. Change the time format:
    Depending on your current settings, tap Use 24-hour format to enable or disable this option. If this option is enabled then the phone will show the time in 24-hour format, while if this option is disabled then the phone will show the time in 12-hour format or AM/PM format.
  9. Change the date format:
    • Tap Select date format.
    • Select the desired date format (dd/mm/yyyy, mm/dd/yyyy, yyyy/mm/dd).

So, by knowing this step, now you can easily set or correct the date and time automatically or manually as well as adjust the date time format according to your need.

  1. And what if there ISN'T the "Select date format"? In my phone this line is completely absent and below "use 24hour format" there is nothing at all...
    Is there a way I can edit some file in system directories to set my date format right? It's silly when the dates look like as we had 31 months with 12 days each :D
