Nokia N8: How to change the time and set up an alarm
If you’re new to the Nokia N8, you’ll still be getting to grips with the Symbian ^3 operating system. Thankfully, it’s a lot more simple than you may think, especially once you get the hang of it. Join us after the break, where we take a look at how to set the clock, and how to adjust the alarm…
The clock is the first thing you’ll want to change when you get your Nokia N8 charged and running, as the chances are it’ll be the wrong time. This can be done in seconds, however, and is easy to do.
Your Nokia N8 will already have a date/time widget set up on one of the multiple home screens. Tap the little clock icon to get going.
This brings up the clock app, to change the time simply press Options, Settings and then enter the new time/date. Click on Back once you’ve done this. You can change the clock from analogue to digital by tapping the clock icon on the left side of the screen.
To set up an alarm, again you want to be running the clock app, so if it’s gone back to your home screen tap the clock widget again. Then click New Alarm. Enter the time, and if you want it repeated – every day, for instance, or just at weekends, then enter that below. You’ll be able to set as many alarms as you want – either singular ones or repeated alarms – just press New Alarm to keep adding.
