  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
