    I've looked around but never found any definitive answers. I finally got mine to work. I don't know what part of these steps did it for me, but this is exactly what I did and now I have no time-stamp issues on 2.2 (which was the only reason I didn't like 2.2)

    Wiped data 3 times
    Flashed SBF
    Did not sign into any accounts including Google
    Installed Universalandroot and rooted
    Installed bootstrapper
    Moved su to xbin to keep root
    Wiped data 3 times
    Flashed 2.2 older version
    Again did not sign into Google or any other accounts
    Installed bootstrapper
    Flashed newest version of 2.2
    Installed Handcent manually. I didn't put it on with TiBu or let Google try to reinstall all my apps (which hasn't really been working for me lately anyways)

    After that I was good to go. I haven't had ANY of the 2.2 bugs. The only thing I've noticed is when I put themes or ROMS on my X, the timestamp bug comes back. So make sure you do a backup of the fully stock setup just in case something you install screws it up. By the way I've only tried one theme so this might not be true for all of them. Good luck.

    That's a lot of work for just a timestamp fix.

    Well if you're on 2.1 and want to get to 2.2 that's what you have to do anyways. Basically the only change is not signing in to accounts, and I don't know if that's what did it for me. I just laid out exactly what I did so others could try it and see if it worked.

    Mine works fine and I didn't have to do any of that?

    Timestamp and MMS issues were fixed with a Handcent release several weeks ago. I know because I had all the issues, and when I updated Handcent, they all went away. At least for me... :D

    Mine went away too, but then I started installing themes and the issue came back. I just made the date and time transparent so I don't see them. I see the time I got the message on my LPP widget. I would much rather have themes than a working timestamp, even though I dont know why I can't have both.

    I guess I just suck at life then. This was my third attempt at flashing 2.2, and I just got my handcent to work. I heard they updated it and fixed the problem but it wasn't working for me. I guess I'm just weird, having the times on my texts wrong just irritated me and I had to have it fixed. Maybe I will do further investigation to the cause because I would really like to put a theme on my X.
