I am on slingshot mobile with an ex-telecom xt nokia 3120c. I have noticed that when i receive text messages, the receieived time displayed on my phone is an hour ahead (i.e a txt receieved at actual 11.37 displays as being received at 12.37).

My phone itself has the correct time, all calls have correct time, and sent txts have the correct time (both on my phone and my slingshot bill).

Is this a complicated issue to do with my phone, or a case of slingshots SMS centre not being adjusted for daylight savings time? Anyone else had a similar issue?

It doesnt bother me, just curious about it.

Cheers
Nick

It uses the Vodafone NZ SMSR and its not a issue on there

Have you checked your handset has the latest software / firmware from Nokia?

Thanks for the reply, the version checker on the nokia website is giving me errors, but i see reference to a 10.x version on the forums (mine is 09.49).
Will try update when i get home (need USB cable).
Will let you know how it goes.

Interesting. Downloaded the Nokia phone updater program, and it came back telling me that 9.49 is the latest.

Despite a quick google search uncovering discussions around a v10. Much to my amusement, someone has put supposed v10 firmware on rapidshare also. My curiosity didnt extend to downloading that!

Nokia website gives me "Sorry, There was a technical problem. Please try again soon" when i enter the phone code to find out the latest firmware manually.

From the evidence at hand I think it could be to do with it having telecom specific firmware on the phone that is designed to get time updates from their time server (which i understand from another GZ discussion that VF doesnt have).

My nokia 2730 is the same, I manually changed the time then turned auto update on - seems to be sticking so far

I have tried Menu / Settings / Date and Time / Auto Update of Time - ON

my 2730s seem fine for time of messages, and I get a crapload of them from twitter.

Firmware update issues are because they are vodafone specific versions. Tried changing the product code like when I was fixing my N95 so I could load the english version of the firmware and even tho the product code is changed the nokia software updater still refuses to upgrade it since it has operator specific software on it.

If anyone finds a way to debrand it and get latest stuff on them I would be very happy.
