When I first turned on my Galaxy Tab 10.1, I told it to automatically set the time. Unfortunately now the time zone is set to GMT+00:00 in the Date & time settings, and is disabled (so I can't change it). How do I enable the time zone setting so I can change it?
I downloaded a free app called TimeZone Changer to fix this problem. Still don't understand why Samsung disables this.
I could not get it to change timezone or time either. Could not make it stop using network time either. i did a factory reset (from settings | privacy), correctly set my timzeone this time BEFORE saying use network time, and that worked fine.
The problem is that the "Automatic Time Zone" setting on the Samsung Galaxy Tab defaults to on, and the preference to disable it is missing from the built-in settings application.
There is an app on the Android market specifically designed to correct this issue called Galaxy Time Zone Fix. It mimics the "Date & Time" section of the built-in settings application but adds the missing preferences.
Uncheck "Automatic - Use network-provided values". It should be the first entry in
Settings -> Date and time.
I had the same problem and network-provided values are locked/disabled and I'm not able to change them.
However using ClockSync works for me.
we struggled with this, then solved it, then months later had it again, and struggled again - did everything, but always it reverted to the default time zone after a moment or two, or three ... then did :
power off ... power on, went into Settings as soon as we could, Auto Time was ticked, Auto Time Zone not ticked, selected our time zone from the list, tapped Home & went back to our favourite app - and it has been fine since, with no reversion ...
You can go into the calendar app and under settings there is a checkbox titled "use home time zone". Check that box and then you will be able to adjust the time zone.
