How do I change time and date on LG440G Tracfone?

On my model, I go to menu, then calendar, then calendar will show up & you can use arrows at the top to pick month & year, then once you got the right month, tap on correct day. that is for the date.

The time should come up automatically when you turn on your phone. Mine even changes to correct daylight saving time automatically.

When I sync the outlook calendar to my iphone, one of two things happens. 1. If I put an all day event in outlook, it syncs to the iphone a day earlier (both otlook & iphone are on same date &...

Make sure time-zone is the same for both iPhone and the computer.

On iPhone setting > Mail,Contacts,Calendars setting > Time Zone Support, make sure you are choosing the city where you are in.

Otherwise, make sure you have updated the iTunes to 7.5 or later.

Update to iTunes 7.5 or later to resolve this issue. If you're not able to update, continue reading for other options to resolve the issue.
Each Outlook calendar event has an internal property known as "Message Class." When some Outlook plug-ins are installed (such as Live Search Maps), the setting for the Message Class property can change from its default of "IPM.Appointment" to something else. iPhone and iPod touch are only able sync calendar events with the Message Class set to "IPM.Appointment," therefore any calendar events created after installing certain Outlook plugins may no longer sync.
To verify this, examine the property of the Calendar event items for MS Outlook and see if the Message Class shows something other than "IPM.Appointment" in any of the calendar events. To view the Message Class property for your Outlook Calendar events, add the Message Class field as one of the columns in the Current View using these steps:
  1. Open Outlook Calendar on the computer.
  2. Choose View > Current View > Events.
  3. For Windows Vista, choose View > Current View > Customize Current View.
    For Windows XP, choose View > Arrange By > Current View > Customize Current View.
  4. Click the Fields button and choose All Appointment fields from the pop-up menu in the "Select available fields from" section.
  5. In the "Available Fields" column, select "Message Class" and click the Add button.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click OK.
Now verify that all your calendar events are showing "IPM.Appointment" for the Message Class column. If you have calendar events showing a different value other than "IPM.Appointment" you will need to perform the following steps to fix the issue.
  1. Uninstall any Outlook plugins such as Live Search Maps or other plugins which change the default Message Class "IPM.Appointment" to some other value. Once the plugins have been removed, verify if those calendar events revert back to the Message Class of "IPM.Appointment" so that you can sync the calendar data to iPhone/iPod touch. If you are able to sync, try adding the plugins back one at a time and verify that you are still able to sync.
  2. If removing the Outlook plugins does not change the Message Class value for the calendar events, manually change the Message Class value of those calendar events to "IPM.Appointment." For more information on Message Class and how to change the Message Class fields/value, refer to Microsoft's KB article 201087 How to update existing items in an Outlook folder to use a new custom form
Good luck!

Samsung Impression :Daylight savings time moved all the appts

This is the second Samsung phone I have had that did this. The A707-Sync had the same problem. I called Samsung tech support and they told me to disable the auto-update feature for daylight savings. Not a great solution, but the only one I got.

Calendar freezes...tried rebooting several times..Will not change dates..Frozen on today

Sounds like you need to fully back up your iPhone by syncing it with iTunes. Make sure all your contacts are saved to your sim and anything else important is saved somewhere else.

Once you are sure you have backed everything up plug your iPhone into your computer and load iTunes.

Select your iPhone on the right in iTunes and in the Summary tab there will be a Restore option.

Click that to restore to factory settings and solve your problem.

On the LG KP500 can you get a text alert of an appointment?

Set your appointment through your calendar. It will indicate when you wished to be notified and how long you want to be notified. If your worried about the sound of the alert when you receive your appointment notification, then change the default sound within your settings.

LG KP500 Cookie bugs - Calendar Alarms and Sync

I have a lot of problems with the calender. when I first got the phone, a week or two ago, I put my work houres in it, and the whole week, no alarm. then weekend came and a small icon above of a small calender appeared, and the whole weekend it kept on going off 5 times in a row at 7.30, the time I needed to leave for work in the week, when it didnt went off at all O_o today, I had to leave at 8.30 and it went off at 8.30 but also at 7.30 again, while that's not an alarm in my calendar for today.. after work my cookie suddenly went out, I had to take the battery pack out to "reboot" it, now the calender icon is gone, I wonder if it will go off at 8.30 tomorow like planned or if it won't go off at all anymore again..
Another thing I noticed is, that when I put in a date from one houre to another is that it doesn't state the correct houre (when I put in 8.00 to 16.00 it shows 00.00 to 16.00) I put in until I open the actual appointement.
strangely enough, my cookie just lighted up it's screen as if I touched it out of itself and even more strange, the calendar icon up there is back..!

IPhone sync with Outlook Calendar - Appointment time put on iPhone 1 hr later.

This solution pertains only to the one hour time difference people notice upon syncing to MS outlook.

In iPhone, there are two areas where you have an option to change your time settings.

1. When you go to 'settings', then to 'general', you can set up time and date, and also 12-24 hour format. Please note that changing the time here DOES NOT correct the problem, despite iPhone displaying correct date, time and time zone. Many people in this thread have stated that the problem persisted despite them setting appropriate time zone.

2. When you go to 'settings', then to 'mail, contacts and calendars' row (NOT the 'General' row) - you get an option to change your time zone at the very bottom of all the choices. You will see that wrong time zone is selected here - likely cause of the problem. Correct this choice and the one hour discrepancy between appointments in outlook and iPhone disappears.

Additional problem solutions - in the solution No. 2, if you set 'Time Zome Support' to 'ON', then all your appointments in the calendar will be displayed in the time zone of your HOME address. In other words, for example, if you are a person in central time zone, your appointments will be displayed ALWAYS in central time zone format - they will NOT change automatically when you travel from central time zone to eastern time zone. On the other hand, if you set the time zone support to 'OFF', then all your outlook appointment display times will change and adjust according to any time zone you travel to - This is often an inconvenience since most of us would like to remember our appointments as they were made in our home time zone, regardless of what time zone we traveled to.

Please note that the above solution pertains to only display of appoint times in outlook - This solution does NOT relate to the time displayed by iPhone and how that displayed time adjusts when you travel to different time zone away from your home time zone. This second issue is addressed below -

You can get your iPhone to display the current time in two ways -

1. Either always show the time in your home time zone, regardless of where you are (i.e., a person from Texas central time zone can set up to see the time always in central time, even if he/she travels to another time zone). This display setup is good for people who always think of time in their home time zone and then do mental conversions to reach at the local time zone time.

2. On the other hand, you can get iPhone to do this for you and change displayed clock time automatically to the local time zone that you have traveled to, away from your home time zone. Please note that enabling this capability in iPhone has no bearing on how the appointments are displayed in MS outlook.

Go to 'Settings'. Go to 'General' tab. then click on 'date and time'. Pick the 'set automatically' option to 'ON'. Now, the iPhone will automatically adjust displayed time to show the current time in which ever time zone you travel to.

If you set the 'set automatically' option to 'OFF', then you can select your home time zone. Then, the iPhone will always display time in your home city time zone and will NOT change even if you travel to a different time zone.

So, in summary, there are two places you need to adjust the time zones in iPhone - to do two separate tasks, first task of displaying appointments always in your home time zone upon syncing with outlook thereby avoiding the one hour skip; Second task of getting iPhone to display either your home time zone clock, or getting it to adjust current time to reflect the time in new time zone you travel to.

Hope this helps.
