Had my Lumia 800 for 2 days now and I just adore it, but I've noticed a bug, glitch or settings issue that is causing received texts to timestamp 13 hours into the future. All calls, email and sent text messages have a correct timestamp.

I've made sure that my System Locale is set to English (New Zealand) and have tried for 30 mins playing with different settings and timezones, but still no luck.

Is anyone else having this issue on their Windows Phone, or find a way around it.

Thanks for any replies. =p

I haven't seen that behaviour before on any Windows Phone other than for messages generates in another time zone (in which case they were behind and not ahead). I will have a Lumia this weekend and will look out for that issue.

No problems on mine in the past 3 weeks.

Is your time zone set to UTC +12 Auckland, Wellington?
If not and you have no option to change it then de select Select Automatically under date+time.

Seems to be this problem, but Microsoft say it's VF's fault. Really annoying, there is no fix I can find apart from setting the timezone to UTC +0 - But as mentioned, that throws my Google Calendar off.

Weird that it only affects some people.

Changing the handset timezone will create problems when you create calendar items and have those synchronise (and if you travel overseas for example and the timezone changes).

Are you using Vodafone?

Do you think it would help if I rang Vodafone support? Is there an email service or someone other then the call center I can talk to. I really dont want to have to explain this to call center staff.

This is actually starting to anooy me, I use messaging more than any other feature on the phone and it's impossible to tell what time a message has been received after 11am because the timestamp just displays "07/01" even though it's the 6th.

Someone suggested that SMS should be relayed by the receiving MO using UTC timestamps. What's on Vodafone?

I need to look at examples in the SMSR from the OP but if time is out for one handset you think it would be out for many more

this is a known issue on WP7 when handsets imported from say UK into New Zealand, thats why its 13 hours out (NZ timezone difference + DST)


I'm chasing to get this fixed internally at MSFT and will update when I know more shortly
