If I receive a text message and my phone is off, the time stamp on that message will be set to whatever time i turn on the phone the next morning.

How can I change it, so that time stamps will indicate the actual time that they were sent?

I searched online and found the "sms time fix" but that did not work for me.

Any suggestions? This is quite frustrating... I wonder if this occurs on all Android phones or just the Charge :-(

Many thanks!

your phone stamps the msg when it gets it. i would think the only way to fix that is if the original time is forwarded from the server or if its embedded in the msg and someone knew how to extract it.

It's been this way for me with every phone I've had on Verizon. I don't know if it's the way VZW works or just general SMS, but I'm quite sure it isn't anything Android specific.

I had an iphone 3g on tmobile and texts were stamped accurately even when the phone was off. I too would love to know a fix.

All the symbolizes I owned from.Verizon showed the date received even when the phone was off so it's something Android related

I see these posts are from 2010.

There still isn't a particular phone model or carrier offering this feature?? I've tried numerous apps, but haven't found a resolution yet. It used to be on basic phones, I've read capability still there. So ??? It's been at least 8 years!!!!

Please help!!!

Welcome to the Forum. . Based on all the previous posts it sounds like it's the way Android time stamps the messages, it uses the time stamp when they were received by your phone, not from the network provider. Most of us probably aren't aware of this since many people might not turn off their phone at night. For me personally, I haven't turned off my phone at night while i sleep since 2010, I just use Do Not Disturb settings to keep it silent. Maybe someone else will have some other information, but I'm not sure if you can change the way this works natively on your phone.
