Fix Incorrect SMS Timestamp!!!!
Ok I think I just figured out a temp fix for this issue with the wrong timestamp!!!
I just tested this and it works ... it has to do with the DST.. for some reason anyone that is in the EST. time zone from what I can gather gets this issue...(Or it maybe any timezone) ..now I've tried turning of the network time.. but for some reason the iphone still continues to display 4 hours behind.. so I got thinking .. If I changed my time zone to something that was GMT+5 would this fix the issue with the 1 hour for DST and nope... no go.. it just added 4 more hours... so I figured it out... we need a timezone that doesn't have DST and is GMT+0
so here you go.. try this... chose any of these time zones or cities i should say:
I used Rabat, Morocco and tested with my G/F who also uses an iphone and we are both on Rogers in Canada.
Ok so turn off automatic update... chose Morocco as the time zone and manually set the correct time and this should solve the in correct timestamp until a better solution is put together...
Set Automatically = OFF
Time Zone = Rabat, Morocco
Set Date & Time = Manually
Calendar Time Zone Support = OFF
Let me know if this works and here is the list of places with no DST and GMT +0.
here is the link to wiki:
Danmarkshavn and surrounding area
Saint Helena (including Ascension Island and Tristan da Cunha)
São Tomé and Príncipe

This does work... just try different cities in different time zones till you find the correct one for you (for example: Dublin for argentina). To check if it's correct go to your carriers web page and SMS yourself.

hi everybody try this
connect using ssh then issue the command
chmod 777 /var/db/timezone
then restart the iphone and hopefully the "timezone freeze" lets go and you can edit your timezone again
crossing my fingers for you guys
