    okay so today was daylight savings and we sprung forward a month. well i set my alarm thinking 'hey it'll do it automatically' but it didn't. i can't find anywhere to change the time at all. the 'date and time' settings give me two settings. my mom's is doing the same but my stepdads esteem changed his automatically. where do i change the time? and if its me just being an idiot xD feel free to express that because i can usually figure it out and i'm stumped and its like 'grrr'

    The phone gets its time information from the network, you don't set it manually. If it didn't change try power-cycling the phone.
