Incoming Txt Mess with wrong time stamp

Since the GB update my EVO 4g has been experiencing periods when incoming messages are 5 hours off.

i have set changed the time to not be automatic, but that did not help. updated prl as well.

i feel like it has something to do with signal strength, but i haven't been able to narrow it down to that.

Any ideas? I havent seen a lot of complaints about this.

Side note... my extended battery lasts 3 days easy after the updates.

I had that problem on my Evo and it just continued to get worse. Its a bug in the stock app.. there is an android app that fixes it. its called "SMS Time Fix" and its free. works like a charm. hope it helps!

actually its a known issue through google. im guessing youre using the stock text app.  until they fix it (its been known for quite a while now so dont hold your breath) use a 3rd party text app like handcent or go sms.

I'm downloading it now and will also try this out.  Funny thing is this was never a problem when I first got my EVO 4G - it worked fine for months; just recently it's been getting worse and worse.  Let me install this and give it a week or so - hopefully I have the same results as amiography and BEATRANGER.

What's the solution for non android phones?  My two year old Rumor has always had this issue?

you might have to do a reset on your phone. back up all your contact information and reset the phone.  i had the rumor and i dont remember ever having the issue with it. does it happen just here and there or does it happen while youre traveling? bouncing in and out of reception areas?
