Angry Can time/date of texts be changed?

Please Login to Remove!

Okay Blackberry and tech experts, I need some unusual help here. I decided to do something bad and go through my boyfriend's (potentially ex-boyfriend's) Blackberry. I found inappropriate texts to other women with time and date stamps. Seems pretty obvious what my next move is, dump the guy! However, here is the catch, on March 9th he got a new phone (not a blackberry) and so his blackberry got the contacts, etc transferred out and updated to his new phone. The inappropriate texts are dated up until March 8th. He claims that all the texts are real, but are from before he met me and that the time stamps somehow all got changed and altered when he switched phones, also gave me some excuse about his companies privacy rules and those having an effect on the time and date changes. One question: could there be any validity to his claim? Is this at all possible? Or is he just a total sleaze?

Any information is very much appreciated and helpful.

Default Re: Can time/date of texts be changed?

Here's what I understand: The time and date are controlled by the carrier. I believe they are determined by the time sent, not time received, but you can check that easy enough with a search of the forum as it has been discussed numerous times.

I have no idea on the subject of the time/date stamp being corrupted when the data was copied from the old device to the new device, but I would really doubt it unless someone else gives you a good example and explanation.
