    Hey guys,
    I just got the magic yesterday and so far I'm loving it. Just have a couple questions about texting. When I receive a text it usually tells me the time in eastern time though I'm pacific. However, my sent messages come up with the right time. This makes it so that threaded sms is kind of useless. Everything is all out of whack. Also, every once in a while it just won't even give me a time and there has been once or twice(after fiddling with it for a bit) that it gave me the right time but it just went back to the wrong time right after. Could this be a problem with the phone or is it rogers' fault? I'm assuming it's getting the time from the network and they have it wrong(meaning I can't fix it) but I just wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem.

    Also, is there any way to make it vibrate when I receive a text? I feel dumb for asking this as it seems like it should be something really obvious but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Thanks for your help,
    Sam

    Try MENU | System Settings | Date & Time Settings | AutoMatic ...

    That should work ... if was not already set to Automatic then the Time Zone setting is problably different fron the set time ...

    well I managed to get it to vibrate
    had to go into the setting in the actual messaging app
    not just the regular settings
    should have been able to figure that one out

    still no luck with time issue though
    thanks for your input
    but I've definitely tried that
    and many other things
    with no success
    must be a network issue
    it mustn't be getting the time from the internal clock but from the network
    oh well
    maybe they'll figure it out evenutally

    Yea this is exactly the same for me on my Windows Mobile phone (htc diamond). But it will keep the order right anyway, but if I do a restore it will lose order of which was first because it bases that on the time. Does you phone have them go out of order all the time or just after a restore or something?

    Oh yeah. I forgot to mention that. Everything is out of order. My sent messages have the correct time but received ones are wrong.
