If you go into messaging and then settings, under the customize messaging portion you can change ur timestamp settings from smart to individual messages.
I've had my settings set to individual for quite a while and even though the times on the main messaging profile are still off, when u look at an individual message the time is always correct.
Just something that I wanted to share because I need my stuff timestamped lol
...also I know most ppl have many issues with 12/18 but for me its the most stable yet, after deleting the .apk nd fixing permissions with rom manager, I've only had two soft reboots in like 24 hrs, I was getting reboots like every 3 hrs on previous versions
