    My 2month old HTC Desire has been fine until recently. This isn't a huge deal but very annoying. My messages are all out of sync. Usually the last text message is visible in conversation order but now I have to search for my friend's reply instead of seeing it last on the list. Does anyone know of a way to sort this or is anyone having the same problem?
    Thanks

    I've noticed that if I reply to a text within the same minute as it being received it'll display ABOVE their text, it's bugged me for a while, tried other SMS apps and it still did it, weird.

    I saw the same problem yesterday when texting the wife. The last two messages in the list are mine, with the two before that being hers. However, looking at the times on the messages they are in the correct order, it looks like something has gone wrong with the timestamping of the messages.

    Happened to me when the messages were pretty close together, haven't seen it today with any texts but there's been more of a delay between messages in the conversations I've been having..

    I had a similar issue when I changed a setting on my texts. When you're in your messages do the following:

    menu ==> settings ==> scroll down to where you can choose time stamps

    Can't remember which one it is, as all options are unticked now (and I am not having this issue any more), but I think you're probably best going with original time stamps, rather than full time stamps... hope this helps!!

    Wonder if it has any connection to this?

    No real idea though, if the time on handsets is all over the shop, it could potentially have an impact on the order messages are displayed (if they are designed to be in time order)? :thinking:

    Could be related, but I think that I only had message order problems when I changed the time stamp settings.

    The time always used to be wrong on received messages on my nokia(s)... it was an hour out for most of the year... think it was only when the clocks changed too!! :thinking:

    Always worth adding something if you think it'll help though!!

    It's funny you should say that though because I've been affected by the "10 minute fast problem" today too and my phone has just now done what everyone above is complaining of - coincidence? hmmmmm

    I had this as a major issue... every text message was out of sync..

    I'm not sure if it will work for everyone...But I checked my clock settings and switched on the "Use Network Provided Values" for the clock...

    The problem did not go away completely tbh... but it has reduced to a great extent...
