Well... It IS a Linux phone. It's not Windows.

You can also click on the little bars icon on the bottom left to get the menus. The only option in the Time applet is Setup - and you can likewise change the format for both time and date there.

It is very easy, just go to World Clock, click on the options, go to network time, and then disable automatic network time.
Then Ok, and tap over the time to change it.
I hope it works.
