Receiving texts that are timestamp in the future

my husband's phone has recently been sending text messages and when I received though it is the moment he sent them they are timestamps the most recent in the farthest 8 minutes in the future from the time it was at that moment it would do that for two messages and then every message after that was timestamp properly and when I received them they would be placed before the text messages time themes in the future and until that actual time came through those messages with stay at the bottom

For example it was 3 p.m. I received a text message that was time-stamped at 3:08 p.m. two text messages were received at that time since they received instantly the very moment he sent every text message after those two word timestamp at the correct time in the two future messages stayed at the bottom as the most recently received message until after 3:08 finally passed it is done this a couple of times we are on the same plan on the TV networks he was within 2 hours drive distance from me he was not roaming we do live in Oklahoma where there are a lot of dead spots and he's been in worse areas with left signal and he's been in this same location for a while now working and we've never had this happen before. What would cause it I'm assuming because Since I'm receiving it from his phone number that he is sending these messages to me from his S9

Hello @Cantphonehome,

 

Thanks for reaching out! We'd love to assist.

 

Please let us know what devices you and your husband are using. Let us know if you have updated them with the latest software, and whether or not you have made any changes to them recently. Also, we'd like to know how long you've been experiencing this specific issue with texts. If it is a connectivity based issue, let us know if you've had poor service in your area at times. This will help us narrow down the issue.

 

Any additional information regarding these text messages will help. When you text your husband, does the same thing occur on his end? We look forward to your response!

I also am having this ongoing issue. For MANY months now. All software up to date and using the regular messages app. For instance I sent text at 12:34. Husbands response is now BEFORE my original text and is timestamped as 12:32! But his phone says it was sent at 12:35; which is correct since he immediately responded to my 12:34 text. He is Verizon, but I have this same problem with my friend who is also ATT.

I have samsung s20 ultra

I'm having this very same problem right now. Is there a fix for this?  I have AT&T and a Galaxy s22 ultra.  This is quite an annoying issue and just started happening several days ago

I have also been having this same problem over the past 2 days. Several messages sent from my husband (iPhone AT&T) to my phone (Samsung S22 also AT&T) showing a timestamp of 7 minutes in the future when I receive them.

I am having problems with this with my Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G. It's time stamping it 10 minutes into the future. How do I get it to stop? This must be a glitch in the Matrix. That's the only thing I can think of. 🤔 🤣

@ATTHelp any solve for this?? There seems to be a spike in people with this issue as of late.

I've been also dealing with it for the last 2 weeks, checked my time settings(coming from the towers) software up to date. (S22 ultra) issue happens coming from various phones and providers, all when I'm in my home with regular connectivity.
