Question about Motorola Mobility TracFone w175 PayAsYouGo Cell Phone

1 Answer

Unable to change the time.

I am unable to change the time. Apparently, Tracfone does not come with automatic DST. Selecting ''Settings,'' ''Initial Setup'' also proves futile, because there is no Time/Date menu on the W175G model. Thanks.

How can I set the time zone?


The DST is only based on GMT.

When daylight saving time (summer time) begins
The following models employ the Automatic Daylight Saving Time/Summer Time adjustment. The DST indicator in the display appears in the display at the beginning of the daylight saving time (summer time), and disappears at the end of it. Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment is based on GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
• Summer time begins at: 1:00 AM on the final Sunday of March.
• Standard time begins at: 2:00 AM on the final Sunday of October

To cancel the Automatic DST/ Summer Time adjustment and
to set DST display manually
The Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment can be cancelled.
Press and hold DST for more than 3 seconds while the clock is displayed.
A beep sounds, and "Aut t OFF" appears in the display to show that the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment is cancelled. The display returns to the clock.
Notes
• The change timing of Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment employed by the unit (see above) is subjected to variation by circumstances and the law in each country/region. In such a case, cancel the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment and
set DST display manually as necessary. The customer who lives in the country/region that has not introduced the daylight saving time (summer time) must cancel Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment before using the set.
• To activate the Automatic DST/Summer Time adjustment again, press and hold DST for more than 3 seconds. A beep sounds, and "Aut t On" appears in the display to show that the Automatic DST/
Summer Time adjustment is activated. The display returns to the clock.
• To change the display to the daylight saving time (summer time) manually, see "To change the display to the daylight saving time (summer time) indication."

I have a different model of Casio but I suspect that the operation is the same.

To change DST you should press the button (8 O'clock) to give world time. This should be showing your city.

You should then use the button you mention to toggle between DST & ST. (ST is no DST display!).

If this does not work and you wish to read through instructions for your particular model, then go to casio.com, select "support", and under "technical support" select "manuals", then "watches", agree terms, and the select "watch manuals archive", insert the required number off the back of your watch and download the instructions.

Unable to set time and date on Sumsung t301g Tracfone


I had the same problem. I had the phone on when I called to set up initial service. After activation I left it on (it was charging) and tried to set time and date but couldn't get anywhere. Finally, I turned it off (hold "pwr / end" button till it turns off). When I turned it back on I got a message that time and date were now automatically set. This was about an hour and a half after intial phone call. Don't know if that wait time had anything to do with it.

How do you change time from DST to standard Time


you can go into the settings for your device and turn DST to "On" so it shows the correct time if your gps is not doing it automatically for you. You can check to see if it has the latest firmware loaded in it. Since the weekends for the DST were changed a couple of years ago some gps's may not change the time at the correct weekend.

How to set the daily time on Ssano model number


You might try turning the power off for a few minutes, and then turning it back on. This worked for my sons LG 600G from Tracfone. It didn't have a place to set the date and time in the menu area that the manual said it would. Of course tracfone is a little different with their phones, but when you turn it off, the correct time and date is automatically downloaded from their satellite.

Hope this helps ya.

Turning daylight saving time OFF


If DST is *already* set to "on" when you reset the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii), my very recent experience is that the time *still gets adjusted back* by one hour.  Now that daylight savings time is over (at least according to the clock's pre-programmed and outdated schedule) I'm hoping that setting the time zone to Z-07 (Hawaii) will completely cancel the automatic time changes from now on.  Otherwise, I need to purchase another clock, and it won't be a Timex.
