Question Changing date/time

I want to change the date/time, and all my settings options show is "Use 24-hour format" and "Select date format". I'm trying to cheat on a game, yes... terrible. But I was wondering how to change the date/time? Is it even possible? I'm new to droid, I don't root (I'm a little scared to), and I don't know much about computers/programming. HELP!

Go to menu>settings>date & time and un-check the box that says automatic. Then you can set the date and time to anything you want. Oh yeah, don't cheat

there is no automatic box to uncheck... (T_T)

If it makes you feel better, I had this problem on a cruise ship, where I went into airplane mode (one text costs $10,000,000,000 cash on a cruise ship) and the time was all wrong. I tried to fix it then... but it wouldn't work. There's no obvious (to a normal, non computer dude) way of changing the time. It was off by 10 hours, and 36 minutes... I can't do that kind of math in my head on the fly!
