Clock on front menu


Nov 2, 2008, 8:50 AM
When the phone is powered on and flipped open there is a digital clock that appears on the outer screen where usually it would say "Verizon Wireless." Is there any way to change this? I find it pointless to have the clock to tell everyone around you what time it is, plus it just plain looks stupid. Would greatly appreciate some insight on this. Thanks!

Under the Display settings in tools, there should be a "Clock Format" option. You want to go there and select the External clock options. That should give you an option to turn off/minimize the size of the clock.

And LG puts that there so people can see the time without opening their phone, as do other companies, fyi.

I tried that. The clock that I am talking about displays only when the phone is flipped open and on the outside little screen. Most VZW phones say verizon wireless on the outside screen when the phone is open or are just blank. Did I get a defective one??? Thanks for the help.

Just talked to LG. They said that's the way they all are. Giant clock on front when phone is open. Crap. Rolling Eyes
