Windows Mobile Texts From 2016 Are A Bug, Not A Feature

Sorry to burst your warp bubble, bucko, but that text message you received the other day from a mobile phone user in the year 2016 was just some stupid bug.

According to non-official sources (MS has yet to comment), some mobile users are receiving text messages sent after 1/1/2010 dated as though they were sent from the future, specifically 1/1/2016.

The latest reports state the most widely-affected user group are those using Windows Mobile 6.1 and 6.5. The folks at WMExperts have posted a homemade .cab file that purportedly fixes the bug, but again, nothing official from MS or handset manufacturers just yet. [WMExperts via Pocket Now via BGR]
