"Unlock New Possibilities: Alter the Time and Date on Your Galaxy Phone or Tablet"
Experience has shown that modern technology has become a ubiquitous part of our daily lives. The simple act of physically setting a clock or updating the date have become time-consuming and burdensome activities that we can no longer afford to do. Thankfully, your Galaxy phone and tablet are here to save the day! While connected to your mobile network, your device will automatically update the date and time. However, should you find yourself without a connection for an extended period, you can change these settings manually. Additionally, if you prefer the familiar 24-hour time format, you can easily enable it on your device.
Please be aware that when traveling abroad, using your mobile connection may result in additional fees and charges. Be sure to speak with your network provider for more information.
Enabling the Automatic date and time feature will allow your device to use your mobile network to determine the current date and time. As you move from one location to another, or during Daylight Savings Time, your device's date and time settings will automatically adjust based on the local network settings.
To access these settings on your device, navigate to Settings, open General Management, and select Date and Time.
Activate the Automatic date and time feature and enable the Automatic time zone option if desired.
As long as your device is connected to your mobile network, the date, time, and time zone will update automatically based on the network's settings. To confirm that you are connected, navigate back to Settings and select Connections.
Please note that if you enable the Automatic date and time feature, you will not be able to change these settings manually.
It is important to keep in mind that inaccuracies in the date and time can lead to issues with many apps and websites, including security warnings.
If you experience difficulty connecting to your mobile network or prefer to update these settings manually, you can disable the Automatic date and time and Automatic time zone options. Doing so will unlock the manual settings, allowing you to customize the following:
Select your time zone: Choose the appropriate region and time zone based on your location. Even if you disable the automatic setting, your device will still update the time during Daylight Savings Time based on the time zone you have selected.
Date Setting: From the calendar, select your desired date and tap the Done button to confirm.
Time Setting: Modify the time through either swiping or typing before tapping the Done button to finalize.
Note: When Automatic date and time is re-enabled, the option to change the date and time manually will no longer be accessible.
Do you prefer military time? If so, you can switch to a 24-hour format on your Galaxy device with ease. You can always revert back to the standard clock later by following these steps: Navigate to the Settings, click on General management, and select Date and time.
Select the switch that corresponds to Use 24-hour format.
The clock will now display in military time. You can continue to use the 24-hour format whether time is set automatically or manually.
If you ever want to turn this feature off, simply toggle the switch off.
