Thread: Fido: Incorrect SMS receive time and shoddy Edge

    Default Fido: Incorrect SMS receive time and shoddy Edge
    Hey Everyone,

    I tried searching for this in the forum (I thought I saw it here once before), but can't seem to find it.

    Has anyone had a problem with SMS messages on Fido? Everything I receive is 4/5 hours off which leads me to believe it's a problem with GMT/EST conversion or something.... but I don't know how to fix it. The problem is always there (receive text from iPhone/regular phone) and my girlfriend's iPhone has the same problem.

    Additionally, I've noticed that the iPhone has a much harder time connecting to Edge (so has the girlfriend!). Generally if I unlock (the keypad) and try to check email/go to a website, I have an Edge error about 75% of the time. If I go into Edge settings and sort of "reapply" the settings, the problem is fixed about 50% of the time.

    Has Fido changed something and has anyone else noticed these issues?

    I had the same problem with rogers this is what you do

    settings > general > date & time

    set automaically = off
    time zone = Rabat (yes because rabat is GMT -0 so this does not
    send your phone 4 hours ahead or 4 hours behind)
    set date & time = set it yourself manually

    Calendar
    time zone support = off

    You can try SMS Timefix version 1.1.3b, it worked for me on fw1.1.3. You can find it on installer by adding this source. http://www.iphones.ru/r
    Don't be shy if I helped you use the Thanks button, I do it.
