Time stamp on incoming texts wrong

I am in the PST time zone but when text messages arrive they are stamped with the EST.  When I send texts they are stamped with my correct time zone.  


For example:

I send a text at 8:52pm PST, it is stamped with the time "8:52pm"

I then receive a response text at 8:55pm PST, but it gets stamped with the time "11:55pm", which is EST.


The problem is that the phone then organizes the conversation based on the time stamps, meaning all my outgoing texts are first because it thinks they are 3 hours ahead of the incoming texts.


Anyone have this problem and solution?


I've tried playing with all the date and time settings, as well as a factory reset. If I change the phone to a different time or timezone in the settings, my outgoing texts are stamped at that new time, but incoming texts are still stamped as if they were EST.


Thoughts?

    We bought two Nokia 3310's, one for each kid.
    We live in British Columbia PST and the phones are registered on Koodo.
    They are having the same problem, super irritating. Especially when it looks like the kids are up at 3 am texting.
    Tried changing all the settings on our end with no success.
    Has anyone found a solution?

    I have the exact same issue as well. Just purchased the phone. Outgoing texts show PST, incoming texts are EST. Changing Date/Time settings has no impact on incoming text time stamps, only outgoing. I.E. No matter what I change the timezone or time to manually, the incoming texts keep showing EST. I am on Telus. If I can't find a solution in next few days I will end up returning the phone.

  • same for me...on public mobile in alberta (subsidiary of telus)

    Has anyone resolved this issue yet?? I just got the 3310 yesterday to make matters in my life simpler... Haw haw to me for thinking something can still be simple these days! 

    Ive even gone as far as changing my time manually 3 hours ahead of my actual time zone, and my girlfriends texts are still coming in 2 minutes fast.. i just want my texts to be in order man.

    I think it's based on carrier time. I have issues when we enter Daylight savings in Australia.

    Did anyone see this thread from HMD? This is a messy sitaution. No one will ever expect this from Nokia especially when buying a feature phone.

    @HMD_Laura can you please forward this to the concerned team so that the issue can be fixed. Nokia 220 4G runs on the same OS as 3310 3G and there could be a similar problem in that phone as well. Please look into this.

    I can bet that no one will give a crap about this issue. 🙃🙃 It has been 2 years of 3310 3G, the support has already been ended (applying smartphones update policy).
     Cheers! 😀😀

    Smartphones get successors every year. Featurephones don't.
