What Is World Time And How Do I Use It On My SGH-I617?

World time is a useful feature that allows you to view the time around the world, in over 30 different locations. In addition, while traveling you can use the world clock feature to set up to two different World Clocks, in addition to your home time zone. You can also enable or disable DST (Day Light Savings Time) if desired.
