    The time stamp on my sms has been like 4 hours in the future for a couple days now. Not my outgoing they are fine just my incoming. So my texts arent in order and thats just annoying. Anyone know what is causing this? reboots and wiping caches hasnt changed it.

    Are your time zone settings correct?

    I had a similar issue a couple days ago when I tested on MIUI. When an sms would pop-up it was 4 hours off (time stamp was showing 4 hours earlier than current). But then when I would close the pop-up and open Handcent, the time would correct itself. I couldn't figure out what was causing it, but have since flashed back to King's, and currently Koni's and I don't have that issue.

    Which ROM are you on and have you tried another ROM to see if it still happens?

    I am on Kings R3, I have not tried another rom, I actually just noticed it yesterday around 5 PM. The weird thing is it worked properly last night as I received 4 texts at the proper time. Now today it is off again. Wonder if it has to do with roaming? Its off while im at work (roaming) and fine when i was at home with wifi...I dont really want to flash i was settling into r3. I have noticed this before on other roms but i would delete that message and it would somehow corect itself. Not working this time.

    lol they go in order now but my time on my phone is 4 hours off lol, which is more annoying? Interesting that it didnt bump the incoming stamps 4 hours when i changed it, just my stamps and my phone clock. Whatever it is its not related to the clock on the phone. again im roaming...

    I am not sure. Going to look into it some on my own tonight. My wife's Evo is running Mikfroyo 4.4 and is having the same issue. She is still on PRL 60675 as I haven't updated it yet. I am running Destroyer and am not having any problems with it.

    Well kings is based on mik's so that may make sense. Let me know if you get any where. It only happens in roam but I roam all day at work and that makes it super annoying it only happened on occasion before and fixed itself usually, not on r3.

    When i was stock mine used to be off by 10 minutes or so which just didn't make sense at all. I would try just flashing another rom, it worked for me. Im on Vaelpak right now.
