    How do you make Sunday the first day of the week. I am getting confused and doing things on Thursday instead of Friday :eek:

    'Settings', 'General', 'International', 'Region Format', -> United States. That will make Sunday the first day of the week but dates will come out US style too - i.e. 4-25-2011 for today.

    Starting on Sunday, with Aust. date format

    To get the week to start on Sunday, but not get US date formats, set region to New Zealand.

    Sorry. I can't help. But I do find this hilarious. The lengths Apple will go to to avoid putting in two settings; one for date format and one for week format. Instead, there is a country setting with more than a hundred choices. Anybody try Macedonia? How does Malta differ from Maltese (Malta)? And where is Oromo? ....Oh, I see. Oromo includes Ethiopia and Kenya. Guess I'd know that if I lived there.

    I guess, set region to US. I haven't played around with this since mine was new, and the system has been updated, so things could be different.

    Surprises me too. I think it's an issue that is iPad/Phone-specific. Mac systems seem to be infinitely modifiable in terms of language, region and formats, hence the surprise. As I said in the earlier post, too, it may have been resolved with an update to the iOS since this discussion started.
