    Look in settings, then date + time. There will be a switch for 12 or 24.

    That's odd. On my 920 above the set set automatically switch, there is a switch for 24 hr on or off.

    There is a "24-hour clock" setting in my phone. If it sets off, then it will go back to 12hr(so 13:00hrs will show as 01:00 no am/pm)

    Thank guy for the info.

    I finally found the problem (a min ago), i think is some kind of the OS bug. If i wanted the on/off switch for 12H.
    I need to change my mom phone regional format into United State rather than my country.

    Is there any way to info Microsoft or Nokia to fix this bug? Thank

    Does your country use 24-hr or 12-hr time? If your country uses 24-hr time, then it is not a bug.

    From Wikipedia:
    Time

    The 24-hour clock enjoys broad everyday usage in most countries outside North America, Australia, India and the Philippines, at least when time is written or displayed. In some regions, for example most German, French and Romanian speakers, use the 24-hour clock today even when speaking casually, while in other countries the 12-hour clock is used more often in spoken form.

    I am in US, but I prefer 24-hr time and DMY (day, month, year) date format, rather than MDY (month, day, year) date format; so I set my region + language to English (United Kingdom) instead of English (United States).

    Not sure on the official one. but here like 95% + people are using 12h time and it now feel kind of stupid that i can't turn that on/off. It not big problem but it just annoying that all.
