    Hi all,

    I have an unlocked Captivate running on the Rogers network here in Canada. Whenever I receive a text message it is timestamped for 4 hours earlier. If I receive a text at 8pm, it would show up as received at 4pm.

    I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem as well. If so, are there any potential fixes?

    Thanks.

    Hi All,

    I'm also using an AT&T Captivate on the Rogers network here in Ontario, Canada and am having the same issues. Any ideas on how to solve will be greatly appreciated, as well as I'm also having problems not receiving any MMS messages/Pictures. I'm sure it has something to do with the APN settings. Would appreciate help with this as well

    Thanks

    :)

    Same problem here -- AT&T Captivate on Fido. Using Handcent seems like a huge solution to a small problem.

    Any other ways to fix this?

    I just upgraded to the Captivate on Rogers. It's completely stock, not unlocked or anything, and I have the same issue. All my received texts have the wrong timestamp. It makes reading a message thread really difficult!

    SMS Time Fix is just a workaround. You need to adjust it for daylight savings time or if you go to another timezone or another carrier that doesn't have the issue (noticed this when I went on to AT&T in the US).

    Having the exact same problem. All SMS's are stamped 5 hours early, but MMS's have the right timestamp. I'm using an unlocked Captivate on Rogers and haven't found a solution yet. After searching around multiple forums - many, many Captivate users are having this problem with Rogers. Everyone keep calling them and keep complaining and hopefully they'll fix the problem soon.

    I upgraded to froyo (android 2.2) last night, and it fixed the issue for me!
    Android 2.2 (Froyo) Upgrade Procedure
    Process could have been easier (had a few driver issues) but I got through it.
    Why not offer update over the air??

    Just to support what teezecrost is saying, when I upgraded to 2.2 (Froyo) through Rogers, the timestamp error was fixed.
