    We now have 12h clock. I can't take a screenshot but found a bug. (when phone is locked - that screen)
    It defiantly showed PM next to the time to differentiate between AM/PM but i just checked my iphone after a couple of syncs and it does NOT say PM anymore!

    Can anyone else confirm this bug

    I was *just* about to post this.

    I much preferred it with the AM/PM on display.

    If someone can find a fix for this, I'd be very, very happy.

    I'm not in the UK so things may be a little different there, but I've been using an iPod in 12-hour mode since 1.1.3 and I have never seen AM/PM on the lock screen. It appears in the "menu bar" but not on the lock screen itself.

    Mine still seems to be showing AM/PM right now, so you weren't imagining it. I just wish the initial 0 was dropped like it should be (ie: 9:49am not 09:49am).

    Will do.

    I've just done a full sync and its still there. Cannot take a photo of the unlock screen though.

    (UK iPhone 1st gen with 2.1 firmware)

    The real bug is this weird AM/PM system you guys use.

    I know old habits die hard, but honestly, don't you think it's more practical with a 24-hour system where "eleven" can only mean one time of day?

    Oh well. *shrug*

    Go to Settings >> Date & Time >> >> 24-Hour Time and turn OFF

    AM / PM will then be back :D

    No, it's not.

    Not on the main screen. It was there when I first updated to 2.1, but for some reason, my phone couldn't get 3G or Edge, so I rebooted it - once I did that, the AM/PM indicator on the lock screen (ie: where your wallpaper is) was gone.

    Are you sure you're talking about the lock screen? The situation may be different as I live in the U.S., but like Nermal, I don't think I've ever seen the "AM/PM" indicator on the lock screen itself regardless of the firmware version.

    NO...all that AM/PM thing comes if your international settings are set to the US, if your in the UK your computer musta reckonised that and revert it back to the UK international settings...try it...change from US and UK and see what does and then vice visa

    No. With the 2.1 update the UK time settings reflect those of the US - you can switch between 12 and 24 hour.

    Even set to US, you still don't get the AM/PM indicator, as shown on the screenshot above.

    If it means anything, I live in Canada and have never once seen the AM/PM indicator on my iPhone's lock screen.

    The people who are/aren't seeing it -- Did you upgrade or do a clean install (restore) of 2.1?

    Post whether you have the AM/PM, and the method of install for 2.1.

    I do not see, or have never seen, the AM/PM indicator on my lock screen.

    I simply upgraded from 2.0.2 to 2.1.

    My Regional Format is set to the U.S., though changing it to the U.K. (and turning off the 24-hour clock afterwards) did not change anything.

    I'm not crazy. I just restored my software to 2.1. Clean install.

    Oh, look what's back now I've disabled the 24-hour clock setting.
