    Hi everyone,

    My friend is using a unlocked Rogers Samsung Focus on Bell. His incoming text messages report an incorrect timestamp. For example the time is 12:51 when I sent him a text message his timestamp shows 3:51

    I tried the following
    1. Adjusted the time and date set it to manual and used another region still didn't work
    2. Tried Facebook chat. FB Chat records the correct timestamp

    I read on various support forums that this is a Carrier issue but if anybody knows a fix please let me know.

    double check the APN settings , make sure he put in BELL's setting. it can cause problems with texting and internet as well.

    There is quite possibly not a fix. This happens to me randomly on sprint sometimes. I have gotten text messages that had a time stamp from the future before.
