      "temporal profile activation"!?! Hmmm... not sure about that, but from a programming point of view 24 hour clocks are easier to code and, in my opinion, less error prone - if your finger is obscuring the AM/PM toggle, 11:xx could be either AM or PM. I've made that error myself a few times on my Desire in a number of app's which use the 12 hour format.

      I also agree with the use of metric measures which we also use down here in Oz.

      Since we're on the subject of time notation, I hate people who insist on putting a zero in front of the hour when it is before ten o'clock in the morning and they are using twelve hour format e.g. 08:35 AM or worse still 08:35 PM! The zero should ONLY be in front of single digit hours in 24 hour format - that is the international standard.

      It is also part of ISO 8601 that the date separator should be the hyphen "-" and the time separator should be the colon ":".

        I have a similar issue which I solve using a Scheduled hourly switch to a non-Aeroplane mode for a couple of minutes.

          Wouldn't this be better implemented as a separate application, focussed on e-mail monitoring, which can call the Profile Switcher with parameters for the profile switcher to act on if necessary. E-mail monitoring and actioning should not be bloating up the Profile Settings switcher.

          I've come from the (hack-ptuee) WM camp and seen a number of similar programs there which started as simple settings switchers and ended up bigger than Ben-Hur because of all the extra features.

          Please remember that it is supposed to be a Profile Switcher - that's why I bought it, not to have it turned into a bloated monster which I have to upgrade to, just to get bug fixes for the Profile Switching functionality. KISS!

            On my Desire, I have the above setting too but also have the ability to turn Mobile Network on/off via a long press on the Power button. I think this option is essential as a power/cost saving feature. Used in combination with a Schedule profile switch you could have the phone enable mobile internet one an hour and perform a quick sync, say, at work.
