I can offer no help with this but I have the same problem and it's flipping annoying. I'll let you know if I sort it out (or hopefully someone replies to both of us). Cheers

Hmm, tricky. Try backing up your iPhone and then restore it.

Once I set up iCloud it reverted Calendar back to the previous layout. Hope that works for you!

Thanks, Elizabeth, but it didn't work for me. Maybe I need to restore and start over? If turning on iCloud worked for you, then maybe this was just some upgrade glitch. Thanks for the help!

I have the same problem, set the week to start on Monday on my cloud online, this has copied through to my Mac based iCal but not to my iPhone or my iPad, any ideas Apple?

It seems to be connected to the Region Format settings. When set to Australia they've changed it to start the week on a Sunday. As a short term fix until they change it back to Monday I've changed my region format to Barbados.
This changes the calendar to start the week on Monday, but keeps all other settings the same as Aus, even using google.com.au and doesn't seem to affect contact detail formatting either.
I'm not sure if this is a widespread problem, but I've submitted a bug report at www.apple.com/feedback. Hopefully they'll change it soon!

I agree the issue is with the Australia region format. I tried restoring my phone as Joe suggested, but no luck.
I didn't change to another country because I thought that would mess up my phone and contacts. It seems to be working, though. Thanks, Tom.

I can confirm that the start day of the week is determined by the Region Format setting (insanely). My girlfriend is still on iOS 4.3.5 and has a Region Format of Australia, and has the week starting on Monday. Apple must have changed it to Sunday in iOS 5.
The best workaround country I've found so far is Namibia!
Tap on Settings > General > International. change Region Format to Namibia.
Different regions affect different things. If you choose UK, you get the week starting on Monday, but the clock changes to 24 hr and the phone numbers format the UK way.
The only downside of Namibia so far is that you no longer get ".au" as an option if you're typing a web address and you hold down the ".com" button on the keyboard.
Apple needs to add a "First Day of Week" option in the Calender preferences, like they have in the iCloud Calendar preferences and iCal preferences (which are both ignored on the iPhone and iPad!).
Even Americans are complaining about this. It must be the easiest fix in the world, yet they still haven't done it.

Not sure if this has been resolved for you, but if you have set up your icloud, go to your calendar, click the settings icon on the top right hand corner, then click 'preferences', and then change your settings.
Works like a charm for me

Does that change it on your iPad? It makes no difference to my iPad or iPhone if I set iCloud to start on Monday or Sunday...

Same problem on my iPhone 4 - was OK until upgrade to ios 5 and now can't find any way to make is go back to how it should be. Nothing in the iCloud settings screens or Calendar settings screen.

PLEASE SEND FEEDBACK TO APPLE ON THIS
I can confirm that changing the region settings to the United Kingdom provides a fix to this problem. I have written to Apple to point out that this is a very substandard option (as it reformats your phone numbers and address). I suggest everyone who comes across this page sends in their own feedback and Apple will eventually make the necessary changes.
PLEASE SEND FEEDBACK TO APPLE ON THISiOS 5, iPhone 4S

This problem is fustrating me as well. I too am from Australia where the first day of the week is considered Monday. Prior to iOS5 this was the case, but after upgrading it's now Sunday!
COME ON APPLE. GIVE US SOME FEEDBACK AS TO WHAT YOUR DOING ABOUT THIS.
FYI I have gone to http://www.apple.com/feedback and submitted this problem.

Updated my iPhone4 to iOs 5.01 this morning hoping that that might fix up the week start day fault but no luck... maybe in 5.02 whenever that comes out.
