Hi,

Unfortunately you are not able to check the timestamp on the phone. The timestamp is determined by the time the text message is delivered through the network.

Just because you don't like the answer, doesn't mean it isn't correct. Wink

There is absolutely no way to change the time stamp of a text. You can correct the time stamp of future texts if you've been receiving wrong time stamps, but once you've sent or received a message that time stamp cannot be changed. Sorry!

There's no program or app that will let you edit it?? I find that hard to believe
Expert:  Thomas replied 4 years ago.
Be that as it may, this just isn't possible. Imagine the legal ramifications. The time stamp is set by the carrier and it permanent. If you don't trust this answer you're more than welcome to research it and prove me wrong (I would be very interested in knowing that this can actually be done) however there is no program or utility for this as of now.
