In the settings > general > international, set United States for the region. this will allow you to use 12-hour clock...

Wow, as soon as I changed it I automatically had the 12 hour clock!

Why the hell did Apple do that? Is it a secret plot to make us all worship America if we want our 12 hour clocks?

Someone told me... I'd never have thought to do this myself (it's not even logical!). Glad to be of assistance...

Yeah, I looked all around everything but never thought to change the region!

Thanks for the help!

This reminds me. Why at times when I sync my ipt does the time change randomly? Then when I sync again, the time shows correct?

If you have your Mac set to UK standards, it copies it over to the iPod, so change your computer haha. I had mine set on Welsh and I turned on my ipod and was very confused when it was 18:30...I was lost

For some reason iTunes thinks 2.0 is still the current version!

My iPhone now lets me choose 12 or 24 hours clock. It's also set to UK settings not American.

Only since 2.1, though.

What's wrong with a 24 hour clock?

I have to do sums to understand what the actual time is, which wastes time, and wasting time to know the time is just stupid.
