    Sounds like the time/date is wrong on one of the phones

    Oh right it just looked odd that's all.... Thank you very much.... Also just a,quick one when I send a,text I get a little letter with a clock next to it in the bottom right I'm presuming this means it's sending or trying to send. But should this appear with every text I send? It dissapears and sends the text roughly a second later but does that always appear?

    This used to happen to me all the time on Tapatalk, but never with messaging apps. Is either you or your friends device rooted?
