My text messages are arriving date stamped 2016, and have since 3 January. 

CDMA Okta touch running Windows Mobile 6.5

The HTC forum, here, appears to confirm the issue: http://www.htcwiki.com/thread/3597186/SMS+Timestamp+wrong+since+January+1%2C+2010+on+all+Windows+Mobile+phones?offset=20&maxResults=20

According to Telecom it is a handset manufacturer problem and they are waiting for a fix.  Is anyone else having the same issue?

Edit.  All other settings are correct.  Time/Date, emails are okay, etc. I have tried a power off, a soft reset etc.  It's not too much of a problem, except the time does not show, as it is not 'today', and texts get out of order, the latest is not at the top when sort by 'received'.

Also I'd say you will be out of luck - the Okta Touch was never released with Windows Mobile 6.5 so you won't get an "official" update. Look for your unofficial ROMs.

And I moving this discussion to the Windows Mobile forum.

Thanks Mauricio. I did search Geekzone before posting, (Win Mob and Telecom) and did not find the post referred to above.
