Currently Being ModeratedMar 12, 2011 7:46 PM (in response to san05)First off configure your computer's calendar (I assume iCal) to use a different starting day for the week. That can be done in iCal's preferences. Then, I believe, when you sync the calendar on the iPhone will reflect iCal's configuration. If you also use MobileMe then you can also configure it's calendar similarly.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 14, 2011 12:30 PM (in response to SteveP)Sorry. Then I'm not sure what you can do. I don't have an iPhone so I can't rummage through its settings to see if you can change how it's displayed on the device.Mac Pro 2.66 Ghz; MBP Unibody; MBP C2D 2.33 Ghz; 11" MBA, Mac OS X (10.6.5), iMac C2D 17"; MB 2.0 Ghz; iPad 32G; 80GB iPod Video; iPod Touch; iPod Nano 2GB

Currently Being ModeratedMar 14, 2011 12:42 PM (in response to roaminggnome)You are correct, thanks!
Go to Settings>General>International>Region Format, and set it to "United States," or whatever location you want. (Mine said "English.")

I wholeheartedly support the proposal to allow calendar start day to be set independently of the region setting.
Since upgrading to iOS 5 the region setting for Australia has forced the calendar start day to Sunday. I want it to be Monday but can't change this unless I can find a region setting that mimics Australia in everything but has Monday as the start day.
Extremely frustrating and disappointing that despite continual feedback submissions the 2 or 3 OS upgrades since have not provided a fix for this problem.

Just performed the 5.1.1 software upgrade hoping that it might provide a fix... nup!
All still the same settings.
Well, maybe next time then.

This this is extremely annoying not having the option to select what day the weeks starts on. And what is fustrating also is that on iOS 4 for Australia, the week started on Monday (how I prefer it) and then after upgrading to iOS 5 the week now starts on Sunday!

Waiting patiently for the iOS6 upgrade in a few days to see if they fix this calendar fault...

Well, the long awaited 6.0 upgrade is out now and having just applied it I can report...
THEY STILL HAVEN'T FIXED THE CALENDAR START DAY FAULT FOR AUSTRALIA!!!!!!!!!!!!
Come on Apple, this has been dragging on for way too long with no fix. Please do something about it.
It may only be a minor issue but it should have been corrected well prior to the 6.0 upgrade and has still not been fixed in this latest one.

This is annoying the c#ap out me too. Monday was the start of the week in the earlier iOS 5 versions and then it changed.
PLEASE CHANGE IT BACK SO MONDAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK!
Or add an option to choose.

Well... iOS 6.0.1 is out and I have just applied it hoping that this long ongoing Calendar start day issue might have been fixed finally.
NO IT HASN'T... STILL!!!
I guess yet another Feedback note is necessary.
It would be really good if an official from Apple actually provided some response to this forum or feedback requests.
