LG Rumor: Time on clock keeps changing
The time on my Sprint LG Rumor phone keeps switching back and forth. For no reason it will switch to 5 hours ahead and then a few minutes later go back to the correct time. This has resulted in the calls in my call log and text messages being listed with the incorrect time. My alarms have also been affected by this because they will go off at the wrong time. I notice that it happens on its own sometimes, then other times, the time will change when an incoming test message
or call is received. What's going on and how can I fix this? I really do not want to have to go into the Sprint Store. The lines are always long and the service is terrible. Thanks.
View related: enV time issues...2011-11-10 19:53:52Hey, I've been reading here for a while lately. Great information's posted here, I really love this place.
One thing I haven't found yet (that or I'm an idiot...) is the enV has no sort of time changing thing. Now is a nice thing to have, too, since daylight savings time... and, because of it, the clock's now an hour off unless I use the dual clock thing. Anyway, if it is possible, can anyone help me out on changing the clock to the correct time without having the dual clock on?
And if it helps, I'm on version 4....
EnV Touch Clock2011-11-05 05:43:13The Front clock on my EnV Touch has disappeared and I can't get it back. It is there on the protected screen but once you slide it up there is no clock any more. I tried changing the clock style, turning it off then back on, even changing the size.
LG Dare - How to change from world clock to local clock?2011-11-05 04:53:51The clock (world clock I assume) disappears from the main screen when there is no reception. How do I change it to local clock so I get time 24/7?...
World Clock bug2011-11-08 07:14:01For anyone that has a world clock feature, very specifically VX8560, a.k.a. Chocolate 3, I'd like to ask a favor.
Please go into your world clock and find a useless city, one you don't care about. Now hit the left soft key for 'Set DST'. It should ask you 'Do you want to set DST?' There are two options, 'Yes' and 'No'.
If you hit 'Yes', that city's time will go forward by one hour and a small, red 'DST' icon will appear to the right of its current time label in the World Clock.
If you hit 'No', it simply cancels -- therein lies the problem. I cannot UNset DST on a city. If I set DST for a city like Tokyo which never observes DST, it appears to be forever an hour off. Does anyone else's World Clock behave this way?...
How do I change the time on an LG600G2011-11-05 13:43:23My phone did not update the time for the time change.
I can't find an option to manually change it either. Whenever I go to 'settings' and select 'date and time' I can only change whether or not I use a 24-hour clock or the 12 hour clock!
LG Keybo World Clock issue2011-11-07 18:25:37I recently bought an LG Keybo... env2 for americans... from Telus Mobility and have been having a number of problems. But the problem that I can't seem to find an answer for is this issue I have with the world clock. I live in Newfoundland so we're 3:30 behind GMT. The time on the phone is correct but the time on the world clock for every city is a half hour behind. So in Newfoundland it's saying it's 4:00 instead of 4:30....

Env2 manually set time?2011-11-09 01:33:57Hey all
I'm currently in an area where I won't get any service on my Env2, but I was still hoping to use it as a clock and my mp3 player. However, since turning it off and turning it back on in an area where it can't find service, it also resets the clock.
Anybody know of any way to manually set the time on it? Anything at all?
lg venus clock2011-11-08 22:14:50hi, is there any way to change the display of the lg venus clock? i mean the bottom screen clock, how to say this .... its too plain ......
LG8300 Front Font Size2011-11-11 15:16:19Is there a way to increase the size of the Clock and incoming call name/mumber on the front of the LG8300? I know there are 3 choices, digital, minimize and off for the clock size but I would still like them both bigger. I had a LG6100 that had a much larger clock size. Is there a hack to make this happen?...
best alarm clock tones2011-11-06 06:45:45I currently use my cell phone as my alarm clock and all of the standard tones that come on the phone (Env Touch) just plain suck, especially as am alarm clock. All the ones I have used so far just make me mad when I have to get up early in the morning. Does anyone know of any good tones that I can use that will wake me up a little better with my alarm clock? I don't know how many people have the 'Good Morning' ringtone on their phone but I tried it without listening to it first and it pissed me and my girlfriend off very early in the morning! lol...
LG Shine 'Mods'2011-11-11 10:58:40I've (finally) successfully added my own ringtones, and will be adding apps/games soon... just wondering if there is anything else that can be done to the phone. A few things I thought of were startup/shutdown animations, outer LCD clock backgrounds and removing/changing the camera shutter sound (and video camera start/stop capture sound)... are these possible?...
Changing the Security Settings on Rumor 2 (Virgin Mobile)2011-11-05 00:54:12I am hoping to get some help with a problem I am having with my Virgin Mobile LG Rumor 2.
I have found a great website that will allow me to download programs directly to my phone that you cant get on Virgin Mobile's store (Go to http://www.getjar.com)
Now, I have down loaded various programs for MSN and Facebook chatting, RSS Programs, however, it seems virgin mobile has restricted 3rd party access to the internet. The programs install fine, they run but as soon as they ask for access to the internet....the program comes to an abrupt halt.
I have heard that giving access through Bitpim is possible, however, bitpim does not fully support the Rumor 2 (see it as CDMA Other).
Is there anyway to let 3rd party programs access to the internet on the LG Rumor 2? Is there any 'secret access' to the phone that would allow me to change some type od settings?
I like the Rumor 2 but am pulling my hair out trying to figure a way to let the programs access the net.
Thanks for the help.
Blue Clock .swf and Blue Color Scheme for UX265 Banter?2011-11-04 10:13:27Hello folks!
Long time lurker here, but my first post... Based on things I've read here, I recently 'upgraded' my US Cellular phone from an LG UX260 to and LG UX265 Banter. I like some of the new features, but HATE the clock/wallpaper and color scheme (either glaring white or glaring black) options.
I loved the 'Blue Clock' wallpaper on my 260, which had the sweep second hand on a blue background. This file is Blue_Clock.swf. I also liked the 'ocean' (blue) color scheme.
I'm hoping someone here knows how to extract the 'Blue_Clock.swf' file so I could save it as my wallpaper. I have less hope for the blue color scheme. I have tried searching this board, but have not found anything specific to my questions.
Can anyone help a cell phone novice?
Thanks a lot!
How To Put Games On The LG Venus 88002011-11-05 19:34:05I browsed through the forums a bit and from what I can see nobody has figured out how to put free games on their LG Venus.
I've Had my LG Venus for about a year now, and (although not actively) I've been trying to get free games on it, but to no avail.
Through out all my trials I came to realize two things:
1. Phone is a CDMA Qualcomm Phone, Jar/Jad Files will not work.
2. Games are stored in:
## being a two digit number, starting at 11 and working its way up.
Tonight I was browsing through my cell phones root directory and came accross two swf files stored in:
These two files are eZTip Calculator & World Clock
I personally Never use them, So i went online and searched for 'mobile .swf games' and got this site:http://www.cell11.com/mobile_games/flash-2.html
After BACKING UP the two files(and if you use this method I would HIGHLY sugest you do the same) I downloaded a game from the website.
Changing the name to WorldClock.swf(to mimic the name of the file it would be replacing) I copied it into the tools folder overwritting the original.
A Quick Reboot to the phone and I went to open up 'World Clock'(in your phones tools menu)
Opening 'World Clock' really ended up being Blackjack(the game i decided to put on my phone)
The game played fine aswell!
The only issue is the 4 buttons on the Touchscreen of the LG Venus do not change(for world clock and blackjack anyways) however using the L/R arrows will navigate the games.
If you're having issues with this, or have any questions feel free to ask and ill answer as soon as i can...
[KE850 PRADA] Clock and Alarm Problem2011-11-10 21:13:26Hello!
I recently purchased a LG PRADA. However, whenever I recieved a call the date would turn back exactly 1 day. Furthermore the alarm clock does not work. I have searched many forums about this and have come up with:
1. Taking the battery out and putting back in
2. Doing a reset
3. Turning auto update for time off
However none of these solutions has fixed the problem.
1. By removing the battery and reinserting it, the date will work for about a day then it will roll back
2. The reset had a similar effect
3. Turning off the auto update for time had no effect, before and after reset.
Has any one else who has had this problem come up with a solution? I think it would be great if I could find the resources to reflash the phones firmware, but I was not able to find that either. Hopefully someone can offer some help, thanks!...
Chocolate 8500 WTF?2011-11-14 05:17:37I am trying to set the clock to go to Daylight Savings time and can't find a single ****ing thing that will do it....
LG Rumor... Changing graphics?2011-11-10 13:53:00Does anyone know how to change the graphics in the phone? Has anyone hacked the firmware to try? Or can this be done using Bitpim or QPST?
Thanks in advance,
LG UX585 Rhythm issues2011-11-06 19:23:23I have my new Rhythm now, but it might be going back unless 3 issues can be resolved. I have only had it since thursday night.
#1 The wall paper keeps resetting. I select a plain black background that comes loaded on the phone. The next day it is back to the default USCC deathstar wallpaper.
#2 No way to turn off alert tones. I hate that there is a tone for every little thing such as when a text message comes in, I have a voice mail, etc. I can not find any option for no sound on these.
#3 When I ordered this phone I asked for 4 things. Camera,MP3 player,alarm clock and 24 hour time. I still can not find a way to go from 12 hour to 24 hour clock.
Would bitpim work for any of these?
