70MK1: Taking a stab in the dark......
you have manually set the time & date on your device, while the SMS will have network operator date & time stamp
70MK1: yes quite aware you can set the device to automatically pick the time up off the network, however this can also be manually overridden :)
adding the attachment will change the sending format from SMS to MMS, will also change the charging structure too. So its actually two different message formats that you are talking about.
can confirm, as you have, that SMS type messages have the correct time & date stamp
while MMS have the 40 minutes in the past date & time stamp
just sent myself an MMS & have experianced the past date & time
akia: Can someone PM me details on their MMS. Date/time it was sent and your mobile number? I'll get the guys to check.
akia: Hey guys,
the technical team have investigated and they think they know what the issue is. They'll look to get it resolved and I'll let you know once it's completed.
eXDee: On my HTC Desire if i receive a text within the same minute of sending one, it gets placed before it. Carrier timestamps are enabled and work correctly, it could just be a software thing, perhaps Telecom's timestamps dont have seconds in them or something
send message 12:23:15 --> 12:23:15 on phone
reply message 12:23:50 --> 12:23:00 on phone
Just a guess.
edit: seems to be the case, pinging texts back and forth to 333, if i sent one right at the end of the minute so the reply comes back the minute after, its the right order, but if i send it at any other time, the behavior above is the result.
tallmaninthecnr: Hi thats a lot better, MMS sent at 3:12 and received at 3:11 so much closer thanks. (not to often one sends oneself an MMS)
