    Is there anyway to set the time on this phone?

    I haven't found any place in the menus that have the date or time selection
    other than setting
    your 'World Time" location or DST (Daylight Savings Time)

    Thanks in advance.

    As the A740 is a CDMA phone, the time is set by the network. On power
    up, the phone synchronizes itself to whatever the local cell tower says
    is the correct time (which in theory is supposed to be synchronized to
    GPS or an atomic time reference, meaning the time given will always be
    the "correct" time). I'm actually surprised the phone has any sort of
    time zone or DST settings, as those are also supposed to be
    network-controlled.

    I own a VGA-1000 and a 660 and they let you set the DST too. The Samsungs
    are the only brand of phone I've seen that do. Might be useful for places
    that have weird DST rules.

    Thanks for the info.

    It would also be useful to be able to set the time 'forward' for those
    people that are constantly running late.
    Guess my wife will always be late (which is always anyway).
