Manually update your phone's time

Mobile phone owners, who turned off the automatic time setting function or users who simply don't trust the automatic mechanism, can manually update their device. It is possible to switch back to the automatic settings, even after a manual setup was selected.


While different Android models have different menu and settings interfaces, usually users will have to enter the general settings menu on their device or simply search for the clock settings. In the Settings menu, you should click "Date & Time." Automatic date and time should now be turned off. Next, select the appropriate time zone - Jerusalem - and manually adjust the time and date.


In the Settings menu, click "General." Select "Date & Time" and deselect "Automatic" Next, click on the appropriate time zone and adjust the clock manually.
