This chapter introduces you to some of the basics for working with your Samsung Galaxy Note 3, including setting the date and time, using the clock app, and working with the S Planner calendar app to sync all of your Google calendars as well as accept appointments and create and modify appointments right on your phone.

In this chapter, you find out how to set the time, use the Clock application, and use the S Planner calendaring application. Topics include the following:

  • → Synchronizing to the correct time
  • → Working with the Clock application
  • → Setting alarms
  • → Waking up with the latest weather, news, and your schedule
  • → Working with S Planner

Your Galaxy Note 3 has a Clock application you can use as a bedside alarm. The S Planner application synchronizes with your Google or Microsoft Exchange calendars and enables you to create events and meetings while on the road and to always know where your next meeting is.

Setting the Date and Time

Before you start working with the Clock and S Planner applications, make sure that your Galaxy Note 3 has the correct date and time.

  1. Pull down the Notification panel.
  2. Touch the Settings icon to display the Settings screen.

  3. Touch General to display the General screen.
  4. Touch Date and Time.

  5. Touch to enable or disable synchronizing time and date with the wireless carrier. It is best to leave this enabled as it automatically sets date and time based on where you are traveling.

  6. Touch to set the date if you choose to disable network synchronization.
  7. Touch to set the time if you choose to disable network synchronization.

  8. Touch to enable or disable synchronizing the time zone with the wireless carrier. It is best to leave this enabled as it automatically sets the time zone based on where you are traveling.
  9. Touch to set the time zone manually if you choose to disable network synchronization.
  10. Touch to enable or disable the use of 24-hour time format. This format makes your Galaxy Note 3 represent time without a.m. or p.m. For example, 1:00 p.m. becomes 13:00 in 24-hour format.
  11. Touch to change the way in which the date is represented. For example, people in the United States normally write the date with the month first (12/31/2010). You can make your Galaxy Note 3 display the date with the day first (31/12/2010) or with the year first (2010/12/31).
