How do I change the date and time on my Galaxy device?
It's important that your phone has the correct time and date, not only to keep you on schedule but also to ensure that all the functions of your device work correctly. If you can access a mobile network, you should allow your phone to set the time and date automatically. If not, you can set the time manually by choosing a time zone.
Automatic date and time uses details provided by your network to adjust the date and time. This means that your phone will automatically change to match the time of any country you visit while you have a mobile connection.
Please note: using a mobile connection while on holiday could result in increased charges and fees. Please contact your network provider to find out more about using your phone abroad
Please note: when automatic data and time is turned on, other options will no longer appear
If you can't connect to a mobile network, you can change the date and time manually. If you select a time zone that uses daylight savings, your phone will automatically change the time on the appropriate date so you don't have to worry.
