Y2K16 Windows Mobile SMS Bug? — Update: Fixed!
Several reports are floating around some blogs and Twitter that there may be a Y2K16 (2016) bug affecting Windows Mobile devices, particularly those made by HTC and LG, on several carriers. The bug manifests itself such that text messages received after 1/1/2010 would be dated from the year 2016. Here’s what WMExperts is reporting:
-Messages received after 1/1/2010 may be dated as 2016
-Effects WM6.1, WM6.5 and even non-Windows Mobile phones
-It is ROM independent, meaning switching won’t help
-All carriers seem to be experiencing this bug and any region
-HTC and LG are aware, but no official response yet
The report makes mention that our own Adam Lein’s T-Mobile Touch Pro2 remains unaffected by the bug.
