How to fix Mobile Phone showing wrong time format for incoming Messages

Initially I thought, the problem in the mobile apps showing wrong time format for messages received, only made me to assume, perhaps the handset hands with little bit problems but only later I let to know just few tweaks in the settings will set it right..,

Early I screwed the apps for quiet few times, then let it as to be, went back to my work, since then I got affected by this wrong time format, finally I tend to fix it now. Actually I use to communicate with my colleagues with messages rather calling, talking through mobile, as we mostly work in different shifts..,

likely it ended with a quarrel between us
regarding text messaging concerning projects, all due to the difference in time format while showing received messages. No way will the apps helps you for evidence  as it is  showing wrong time format.

And later then, when I tend to fix the problem, I started the quest from my friends, where I let know that few of my friends have the same problem and probably the one using Nokia sets, after I couldn’t find any solution in net. I was unclear even after going through the manual of the concerned concern in materials they provided or in Web.

After a long hunt, I set it right by following simple Tweaks.., finally it made me to think that-“ while the problem persists or prevails, it likely to be kind of bold obstacle (hard to route it out) but after finding the solutions it seems to me nothing".

Samples of the queries around net for how to fix Wrong Time Format:

  • For about two weeks now, every text message I receive has a time stamp of 5 hours before it was actually sent. For example, a text sent at 7 p.m. will arrive with a time stamp of 2 p.m.

  • I posted this in several forums... Still no solution,  Hey all.

  • I've got an iMate Jasjam, and some sms's are showing as being received 2 hours ahead of now.

  • Hey guys I noticed that this weekend after daylight savings every time i receive a sms the time is completely wrong sometimes off by like 10 or 12 hrs.
