How to set time - turn off auto-update

by Christine

Nowhere have I been able to find out how to change the time on the clock. Come on, I've been all through the menu, which is the absolute WORST I've encountered, not at all user friendly, and I'm no idiot when it comes to tech. I'm online now and the index and manual from Motorola have nothing. Sure, I can change from digital to analog, great. But change the TIME? I'm still looking! What a waste of my time.

Very frustrating. I even called my phone from another phone hoping the incoming call would automatically correct the time, but no luck there.

The keypad is ambiguous at best even with small and nimble fingers, I hate the feel of it. Not at all happy with this phone after 4 months, and wish I hadn't bought it.

How to Set the Time on the W376g
by: admin

Hi Christine,

Here's how to manually set the time on the W376g.

Go to Menu and select "Settings" on the lower righthand corner.

Select "Initial Setup".
Select "Time and Date".
Set "Autoupdate" to Off.
The "Time" and "Date" options become visible and you can select them and manually set them

Thanks for your comments! Cell phone menus are certainly not standard or intuitive, and I had to scratch around for a quite a bit before finding this. Sorry you don't like the phone. I, too prefer nice click-able buttons over a sealed button pad. However it does keep out the dust and moisture. Let us know if you try out another model.
