Hello,

Has anyone noticed that if you turn your phone off and people text you that when you turn the phone on and it receives the messages it tells you the time you turned your phone on not the time the person sent the message.... it doesn't happen on Nokia phones, and I don't believe it happened on my LG GT540 optimus (Android) but it happens on my S2 and my S3.....  So maybe it's a Samsung issue, I'm using stock FW and the Stock SMS app.

In Google Hangouts if you long press on the message, and then tap View Details you see info about when the message was sent to you and when you received it.

Is handouts another SMS app? also this issue I believe is actually not very good, has anyone actually noticed it? it's a pain in the ass, even if you long press the message and select details it show's the same time (the time your phone was turned on)

Google Hangouts is the default SMS app since Jellybean. I have my phone off (airplane mode) overnight - texts coming through have the timestamp of when I have reception again (airplane mode off). Long pressing and viewing details shows me the exact time it was sent to me in the middle of the night.

Do you have to long press to get the actual time is was sent does it still not show the correct time next to the message? plus are you sure it's default cause there's an app called ''messaging'' (The envelope) it's the one that by default show's in the little task bar at the bottom on the home screen, I'm running 4.3 btw.

I'm running a custom firmware on my S4 (a CyanogenMod variant) and there's an option in the Messaging app settings that allows me to see the original SMS timestamps. When this is turned on, you see when the message was actually sent. When it's of, you see when you received it.

I've just checked my wife's S4 and there's nothing comparable in the options. Either Samsung decided to remove it, or it's something non-standard that the CM team have added to the app.

I'm just saying if you use Google Hangouts then you have these options available. I'm not exactly sure when exactly Google decided it was compulsory that Hangouts is the default messaging app - think it was 4.4 KitKat, but I do know you can opt out and have the old Messaging app as your default messaging app.

I have a Nexus 4 running 4.4 and have these options available. So does my wife on her Samsung Galaxy S2 also using Google Hangouts. Maybe the older Messaging app doesn't have these options, but with everyone slowly being forced down the Hangouts route by Google, why not use that to gain the feature you desire?

It's a combo of the old Google Talk and an SMS/MMS app rolled into one - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.android.talk

Have a look in the play store for sms sent time. A nice little app that will insert the time the sms was actually sent at the end of the message. Ie its obviously in the txt message as it arrives but gets junked normally. Works like a charm.

The interesting thing about Hangouts replacing Messaging is that it looks like Hangouts signs into Google so the fact that it's replacing Messaging in kit kat (4.4) onwards is interesting cause some people still uses expensive smart phones (such as the S3) just for text and calling, so they are going to have to take extra steps just to start texting, I have a friend that has a Samsung S3 and he's never set up a Google Play account (no he doesn't download apks) he simply uses the phone for calling and texting, I know such a waste.
