Hi everyone,

I've been having a minor issue with my incoming texts showing the wrong timestamp (consistently 13 hours ahead). I currently run a Dell Venue Pro (WP7) 

This issue cropped up shortly after daylight savings kicked in and the related patch came out (

Trawling the internet have netted several 'solutions', none of which have worked which included hard resets, soft resets, and changing time settings to manual and its variations (e.g. change timezone to GMT, get a text, then change it back to GMT+13, etc.)

While I am currently in an e-mail conversation with 2degrees customer care, I was wondering if anyone else have experienced this issue, and if there any solutions outside the ones in the last paragraph which have worked.

Thanks for the help.

Didn't know dell made phones.
Since its windows mobile, typical to microsoft there will be a setting somewhere in the phone burried unnecessarily deep amungst other settings, somewhere.

I think it just goes off the time on your phone, is that set right?

have you tried taking the battery out and putting it back in again?

They made an Android and a Windows Phone. Then gave up. Still a decent (if flawed) phone but there are definitely better WP7s around. 

I'm absolutely positive it's not in the settings and I have done the battery thing as well.
