The prefix is used to remove the timestamps.

To add a time I just enter the time when you get the SCHEDULED or
DEADLINE date prompt.

eg. Date+time [2009-04-07]: mon 7pm

Lots of formats are supported.

Entering the time at the prompt works for me.

,----[ Example org file entering '7pm' and 'fri 11:30-13:30' ]
| * One
|   DEADLINE: <2009-04-07 Tue 19:00>
| * TODO Something
|   SCHEDULED: <2009-04-10 Fri 11:30-13:30>
