Ok, so I'm in Kansas City, and now the timestamps of my incoming messages are 2 hours behind. So for some reason the messaging system thinks I'm in the Pacific time zone. Maybe it's using my home zip code that I have setup through Verizon, which is in California...not sure. Another strange thing is that MMS are not affected, only SMS, go figure.
However, I might have found a setting on my flight over that could work. Maybe someone can confirm this, but in the folder
there is a file
that has a line
<boolean name="SMS_Use_Device_Time" value ="false" />
I changed it to true, and now all the incoming messages use my phone's time, even after restart. I don't know, maybe that was added by the SMS Time Fix app, sounds promising though. Any thoughts?
