Description & Features

Released February 8, 2010

What is this software?

When the year changed to 2010, this affected the Messaging application's ability to correctly display date stamps on SMS and MMS messages. Messages from 2010 display a date stamp of 2016.

The Treo Pro Date Stamp Update fixes the date stamp issue. With this update, SMS messages events now appear with the correct date stamp. It will also correct the date of any SMS messages you have already sent or received that display the wrong year.
