    Is there a way to start the calendar week with a different day than Sunday? Ex. Begin the week on Monday instead of Sunday.

    Sort of.

    Change the Regional Format under Settings > General > International. I believe United Kingdom and Australia have mondays first. I don't remember what Canada will do.

    This will also change other formatting though, like phone numbers, time, etc. Given that your location has you in the U.S. I suspect you won't find this usable. Though if Canada works, it may leave the other stuff close enough to what you want.

    Actually, from the ones you listed, only the UK changed the start of the week.

    I've found that selecting the Barbados Region Format has the proper effect. It changes the start of the week to Monday, but leaves the other format settings alone (as compared to the United States Region Format).

    It must have take a considerable amount of experimentation to find that out. Thank you. I'll try to remember for next time.

    I got fed up with it and started tapping things randomly... I think it was only the 3rd or 4th try if I remember correctly.
