    Which time format do you use on your BlackBerry smartphone's home screen, the twelve hour format or the 24 hour format? I use the twelve hour format.

    12 for me.

    I don't like thinking that much, the rest of my world runs on 12 so I do too.

    I am used to 12, but recently changed to 24 due to work as most everything is in 24 hour format.

    I am constantly checking my phone, lol!

    I switch back and forth.

    What I would really like is the dd/mm/yy format instead of the mm/dd/yy format.

    I typically like to write the date as 22 July 2011 rather than July 22, 2011.

    You had a phone when you were 7 yrs old?
    Or did you spend a few years in grade two?

    12 hour format... not used to the 24 hour format and find myself counting on my fingers to figure out the time lol.

    My daughter had her first phone at 7 years old too and is now 11 with her first BB with active BIS. Yes, she's spoiled

    I learned 24 hour time, since my dad was an army veteran.

    I've also noticed that just about all retailers use 24 hour time. Take a look at year cash register receipt the next time you go shopping. For instance, I was at Walmart yesterday. The receipt states that I checked out at 16:10:47.

    I grow up using 12 hrs format, when I use the 24 hrs format, I find myself converting it back to 12 hrs format, so it's not convenient for me.

    24 hour without a doubt. I run an irregular schedule, and my alarm has to go off at the right time of day. 3 AM vs 3 PM can be a multimillion-dollar mistake if a late delivery shuts down an assembly line, or a load of food misses its window.

    I was raised on the 24 Hour format, anyway, and prefer it.

    24hr for me. I learned it while studying French and just came to use it more and more often. It makes more sense to me.

    I agree with lak, though. I wish we could have the dd/mm/yy format, too.

    I use the 24 hour format on every timepiece that has that option (BB, wrist watch, alarm clock, etc.)

    I use 24 hour because I am British so the standard and the equaly used time format in civilian life is 24 hour, it takes up less space in the notification bar and makes no mistakes with alarms. Most people here leave it at 24 hour default as it is slightly more used than 24 hour and people can't be bothered to change it. My half sister and our mum use 12 hour. Although here the date format here is dd/mm/yy (non-standard) and vice versa for time (standard)! At school we use 12 hour apart from C.C.F (combined cadet force, 24 hour). I can translate instantly and we still have 12 hour watches mainly. It's all mixed here!
