    Does anyone know why and how to change whatever setting this maybe? On my wife's phone, her commas show up as periods on certain apps. Not all.

    This. Ensure the language under Settings > System > Languages is set to US English and not something else.

    And, where are you located?

    A significant part of the world uses the period as the thousands separator and the comma as the decimal point, as in $2.257.352,12.

    You can see lists of each style here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Decima...numeral_system

    I would assume he is in the US since he is asking how to get it back to "$2,000" and not "$2.000" .

    Yeah, I know.

    I was just pointing out the problem that can ensue when you choose a particular language/country combination.

    Thanks everyone. She had it for US Netherlands.

    I had no idea that other countries would use a period.

    Yep! Each time I go to Italy I have to "reset" my brain to keep from getting confused by prices - most times it is obvious, but sometimes not immediately so.

    Dates also - Italy, like a good part of the world uses dd/mm/yyyy (vs mm/dd/yyyy in the US) and, if you are not careful, you easily misread dates such as October 3, 2017 (03/10/2017) and March 10, 2017 (10/03/2017).

    I screw this up all the time. Thankfully a lot of web forms in Italy have the month written out so Ottobre instead of 10. Pretty hard to screw that one up, even for me

    How often do you head there?

    I try to go twice a year and hope to eventually retire there. I have dual US/Italy citizenship.

    By the way, Brazil is another one of these "backwards" countries - and I have been there 4 times in the last six months visiting a subsidiary of my US-based employer, and expect at least another 4 trips in the next 6 months...

    Ah, I was born in Italy but have lived in the US for the last 33 years and have only been back 9 times since.

    Awesome! Where in Italy?

    My grandparents came from Roccasecca (about 130km southeast of Rome) and from Malvito, about 300km southeast of Naples.

    I'm a northerner; my birth parents lived on the outskirts of Sienna and their family was dell'Aquila della Toscana, in Sienna, about an hour south of Firenze and San Vincenzo, a little further southwest.

    Toscana (Tuscany) is my favorite part of Italy thus far, and Firenze (Florence) my favorite city.
