Incomplete date on screen

Among other issues with my flip, my phone will only show the 1st digit of a 2-digit date except on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturdays, e.g. Thurs. Dec. 10 shows as Thurs Dec. 1; Sun Dec 13 will show as Sun Dec. 1; today shows as Sat. Dec 12.   The carrier only says they hae never seen it before and hands it back to me.  Pretty poor programming, or what?  Thanks.

Re: Incomplete date on screen

Thank you; I was using the theme Precision Zen, and will try the Precision Silver theme.  What would make a difference on them?  (I have not downloaded any themes - these were on my phone originally.)

Re: Incomplete date on screen

Options > Screen/Keyboard. Set the font setting to a smaller size.

 

What do you have it set to now?

Re: Incomplete date on screen

I have it set on 11, but just tried changing it all the way to 7 (the smallest option).  It only changed the text on the open monitor, not the cover when the flip is closed.  The date stayed reading Dec 1, even on font size 7.  

Do you have a flip? I'm wondering if anyone else has this problem.
