Hi all,
I recently upgraded to a Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone and just noticed with some text messages the date reported on them is a future date (namely the following day). The number it came from was an off-network number, so does SMS rely on the sender or the receiver to say the date the message was sent?
My phone is set up to automatically sync the date/time with Telecom and is correct in other areas...

This is a know problem .Once your phone is updated to the latest Windows Phone 8 Portico new messages received are shown with the correct date and time.

If you bought your phone from Telecom New Zealand go to Settings | Update and check for updates.

Thanks- I had run an update check when I first used the phone but apparently I either got distracted or it failed to find anything, but it is now!
