Kindle 4 NT, wrong time and page numbers

1. How to setup time on my Kindle?
It shows me GMT or UTC, whatever, but I need +2 hours.

2. My kindle doens't show page numbers, I've found that there is option to show page numbers even on Kindle 3.
What is the problem, book format? Where to define?

3. Is it possible to show percentage in format XX.X%. If book is large XX% percentage is not very helpful .

Thank you.

Thank you.
From the main menu, press the menu button, choose settings, flip to the 2nd page of settings, there is an entry for "device time"

Not all books have page numbers. If the book doesn't have page numbers, they can't be displayed. Simple as that. It takes a separate file to allow the Kindle to display page numbers.

Hm, there is no such option.

On settings on second page I do have:
Device info (no edit/change option)
Dictionaries (edit)
Page Refresh (turn on/off)

My Kindle 4 NT version is: 4.0.1

P.S.
Do I need to register to Amazon to get this feature.
