Display sent date of SMS



I have a Bold 9700 and I would like to see sent date of the SMS I receive. Is there an option for this ?


Thanks for your help

Re: Display sent date of SMS

Click on the "thread" for the person you are texting ... you should see the trail of SMSs sent/received. 

Scroll into the txt msg in question (whether the one you sent or received)

You should then see at the top (under the person's name & pic) one of either: 


- Received Day @ Time


- Sent Day @ Time 


It's subtle, but it is there. 


Now if you are referring to the time it was sent/received on the server, from my experience with BB, I have yet to find a way for the messages to show the time it was sent/received by the server; it shows the time it was sent/received on your phone. So if you had your phone off for 2 days and then turned it back on, all SMSs would show the time they downloaded to your phone.
