    It is called the Notification Bar. Programmers will often place info there to indicate status of their app...

    You, as a user, can't do much to customize that bar.

    But you can get the date if you tap the bar as if to drag open the notification list -- the date will be shown in the bar.

    Good tip -- I never noticed that; thanks! It will be useful when I'm already using the phone. When the phone is asleep, I press Menu once to see date/time as I no longer wear a watch.

    when you pull it down, it's often called the "notification shade" because it's like pulling down a shade on a window.
