    In the alarm section of my galaxy iii mini it states Sunday as being the 1st day of the week, when to me it is the last day, the end of the weekend. How can I chage this?

    Welcome to the forums!
    I looked on my S3, and I can't change it. You probably can't, being a fixed setting in the ROM.

    Thanks. I wonder that it may be a religious thing.

    I think more to match a paper calendar.

    In England paper calendars rarely start the week with a Sunday. It's a new phenomena to me. I grew up with Sunday being the last day of the weekend. There must be a cultural, religious or scientific reason for Sunday being ommitted from the weekend in this case, and being placed at the start of the week.

    It's Jewish, Islamic and Christian, according to Wikipedia. It's a religious thing.
    The international standard ISO 8601 for Representation of dates and times states that Monday is the first day of the week. This method of representing dates and times unambiguously was first published in 1988.

    You mean in the alarm where you pick the days you want the alarm to go off? Does it really make a difference?

    Somewhat; having always had calendars with monday in 'square 1' my eye naturally follows that order. I'll get used to it, no biggie, it's always good to learn something new.

    If you use the Google calender there is a choice in the Settings, General Settings, Week Starts On...

    Your choices are Locale default, Saturday, Sunday, Monday.
