    in the thread showing that uncredited and credited features added in 2.1 it says that the autolock screen now says pm on it and am, but mainly only works if u do a clean 2.1 install as in restore i guess with no back up?

    can anyone explain to me is this true?

    Works for me on home screen and the autolock screen, and I didn't do a clean install - just upgraded.

    From what I've seen this seems to be a feature on 02. I didn't get it on AT&T.

    What is this AM/PM you speak of? :p
    1530 hours can NOT be confused with 0330 hours!
    But anyway, still won't budge from 1.1.4 till Steve Jobs personal emails me and requests it !

    It can be if you're in the US and your clock is set to 12 hour...

    You have to go in to settings / general / international


    Set region format to United Kingdom, then make sure your date and time format is set to 12 hour format. Now the AM/PM will show up on the home screen when locked.

    How sad are you? - Just think of the amount of extra features. Why won't you update?

    AM/PM shows up on my AT&T iPhone if I switch from 24hr time to 12hr time. I didn't do a clean install.

    It's under Settings -> General -> Date & Time and you will see "24 Hour Time"

    Seems like this is a bug. I got the above to work on one of my 3G phones but not the other.

    On AT&T, only did an upgrade, and it is not showing the AM/PM on mine on the unlock screen.

    Tried toggling the setting back and forth a few times between 12 and 24 settings, still nothing.

    extra features?
    Heck I've had tethering for a year (Apple can't take it away)
    I've had 3rd party apps for a year, some that are still NOT available on 2.X.
    From what I've read prob. the most stable firmware out to date (ALoD ring a bell?)
    Incredible battery life, 4-7 days between charges with 16~ hour talk time and moderate surfing on edge/wifi and some music or a movie.

    Hows that VoIP app coming along in the app store?
    Hows that MMS app coming along in the app store?
    Yeah I sure miss those 'new' features in 2.x

    For me the 3g/2.x iPhone/firmware just doesn't bring enough to the plate to switch/update.

    the united kingdom setting works, but then inside the main screen no longer shows an am/pm it will only show on the lock screen lol.

    w/e the am/pm looks a bit weird and bit on the main screen.


    but DOES Anyone with AT&T have it? or no?

    If you jailbreak you can probably customize the region packages and have it the way you want everywhere.
