Date and time

By default, your device receives date and time information from the wireless network. When you are outside network coverage, or for any other reason, you may want to set date and time information manually using the date and time settings.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

Change the Date and Time

1. From the Home screen, touch Apps Apps.

2. Touch Settings Settings.

3. Swipe to and touch General management.
