    Just yesterday I've got OTA update for my Pre 2 and now I'm on WebOS 2.2.4. Still not sure it's a bad or good luck
    What I just noticed is that call duration displayed during the call in phone app is now completely unreadable (in WebOS 2.1 it was showed as min:sec). Now it looks that way:

    I've checked it with my friend owning Palm 2 - he has now (after upgrade to 2.2.4) the same issue. So I can assume it's massive bug...

    I've read all WebOs Nation forums and found that the same issue been reported for 2.2.3 (or even earlier 2.2 versions). But I didn't find any solution. Does anybody know how to fix it? Any patch available? Or we have to live with that...?

    I've a sneaking suspicion this is a language issue in the phone app. Is it primarily non-US/UK users reporting this?

    Thanks for the tip I need to try changing settings in "Regional Settings". Right now it's set up as follow:
    Language: English (United States)
    Formats: Poland
    Phone numbers: other

    As I'm from Poland it's quite obvious to set formats for Poland. And till now it was not causing any issues. But let's give it a try with English Formats.

    EDIT: you are right: when Formats changed to USA call duration is shown properly... But than also other formats (date, currency...) are changed... Gosh! There no good solution for me
    But based on that exercise I can assume this is webOS 2.2.4 bug... and probably never be corrected - not for country/language like Poland...

    It's an enyo bug. Thats why its shown up in 2.2.x because the phone app is enyo based.

    I found a fix, but it will be a while before I can post a patch. I have to work soon.

    EDIT:
    I came up with a rough patch. It might not even apply.

    The default local file for determining timezone, phone number syntax, and the such were translated wrong. Here is a sample of what it looks like for Poland.

    Code:
    	"minutesFormatFull": "XrQminutesFormatFull012",
    	"minutesFormatLong": "z0tminutesFormatLong012",
    	"minutesFormatMedium": "e8YminutesFormatMedium012",
    	"minutesFormatShort": "hw8minutesFormatShort012",
    	"monthsFormatFull": "zjmmonthsFormatFull012",
    	"monthsFormatLong": "aRZmonthsFormatLong012",
    	"monthsFormatMedium": "5aCmonthsFormatMedium012",
    	"monthsFormatShort": "uPQmonthsFormatShort012",
    	"secondsFormatFull": "PLbse篮dsFormatFull012",
    	"secondsFormatLong": "rjOse篮dsFormatLong012",
    	"secondsFormatMedium": "ePAse篮dsFormatMedium012",
    	"secondsFormatShort": "pmWse篮dsFormatShort012",
    	"separatorFull": "JOwse?aratorFull01",
    	"separatorLong": "GvWse?aratorLong01",
    	"separatorMedium": "y9kse?aratorMedium012",
    	"separatorShort": "u4ose?aratorShort01",
    	"shortTimeFormatMedium": "4AXshortTimeFormatMedium0123",
    Here is a snipet from the Great Britian file:
    Code:
    	"minutesFormatFull": "0#|1#1 minute|1>##{num} minutes",
    	"minutesFormatLong": "0#|1#1 min|1>##{num} min",
    	"minutesFormatMedium": "##{num}",
    	"minutesFormatShort": "##{num}",
    	"monthsFormatFull": "1#1 month|1>##{num} months",
    	"monthsFormatLong": "1#1 mon|1>##{num} mos",
    	"monthsFormatMedium": "##{num} mo",
    	"monthsFormatShort": "##{num}m",
    	"secondsFormatFull": "0#|1#1 second|1>##{num} seconds",
    	"secondsFormatLong": "0#|1#1 sec|1>##{num} sec",
    	"secondsFormatMedium": "##{num}",
    	"secondsFormatShort": "##{num}",
    	"separatorFull": ", ",
    	"separatorLong": " ",
    	"separatorMedium": " ",
    	"separatorShort": " ",
    	"shortTimeFormatMedium": "#{minutes}:#{seconds}",
    I copied the Great Britain syntax into the Poland file. This will affect any Enyo based app (which is why its the phone only atm).

    Which country has the syntax most similar to Poland?

    Choices:
    -Germany
    -Canada
    -Great Britain
    -Spain
    -Mexico
    -France
    -Italy
    -Netherlands
    -China

    Not that the bug affects me, but you sir are awesome!
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    so if someone could activate the SYM key again in enyo there will be lots of happy people:

    [Patch request]enable SYM key in enyo on webOS <3.x

    great finding, these infos can help save the day for many

    Czech probably borrows its regional syntax from one of the countries I listed.

    @Abyssul,
    Thanks for your effort - really appreciate this!
    I just tried to apply your patch using Webos Quick Install but it won't install... message is:
    1 out of 1 hunk FAILED -- saving rejects to file user/palm/frameworks/enyo/0.10/framework/build/g11n/base/resources/en_pl.json.rej

    I will try to apply your patch manually (with WebOS PDK).

    Answering your question about most similar syntax to Poland... If talking about only Date and Time it could be Great Britain, but also I believe that France or even Czech could fit

    And I did it! Patch from Abyssul unfortunately won't work but thanks to his effort I knew where to look for Data and Time syntax tables (user/palm/frameworks/enyo/0.10/framework/build/g11n/base/resources/).

    So I grab en_pl.json table (with SDK Nova browser), replaced all the syntax with those taken from en_gb.json and put en_pl.json back into device.

    After restart I can switch Formats in Regional settings to "Poland" and everything works fine: I keep all other polish settings (currency, numbers and so on) and all time and date info are displayed correctly (as Great Britain...

    Pelcu, any chance you could make that into a patch? I'm having the same issue over here and would surely appreciate your help...
