Get SMS and Instant Message timestamps [webOS 2.2.4] 11

This tip is only for webOS devices running webOS 2.2.4 or higher

In the webOS messaging app, you have probably noticed that not all text or instant messages show the timestamp that the message was sent or received. In fact, if you wanted to add a timestamp to all the messages, you needed to rely on homebrew patches to add this functionality. That is, until webOS 2.2.4 was released for the Pre2 and Pre3 phones. Now, you can access the timestamp on any message simply by tapping it to bring up the same pop-up menu that has existed since some of the earliest versions of webOS. However, instead of now just offering you an option to forward or copy the message, it now gives you the date and time of the message on the top of the menu.

... what puts Twitter into the Messaging app?

Nothing - I think just assign the "name" Twitter to mobile #40404 and give it an icon, then you're good to go.

oohhhh ok, i got it. forgot about that. i've never used the text message interface to twitter.

nice tip, but why can they just enable the timestamp w/in the os, that was actually enabled by one of the patches called "built in timestamp" though not a fan of that one cause its kinda big, i do like the other versions though

Is 2.2.4 supported on a Verizon Wireless Pre-2? If so, how does one get it? My Pre-2 runs 2.1.0 and is "up-to-date".

If the update is available for the Pre 2, just go to the Updates app or w/e and voila

it isn't available in an ota update. You can put it on your phone using the meta-doctor though. I made a video tutorial on how to do that.

here is the forum link: http://forums.webosnation.com/palm-pre-2/308954-meta-doctor-video-tutori...

however, when you choose the script, use the test-Verizon-pre2-2.2.4. It might not have the test on it anymore though, if so that's fine.

now we need this to work on the touchpad and the ability to receive picture attachments etc.

I still prefer the clean time stamp patch, ended up putting it back in my Frankenpre2 after the update. Kinda miss my linux penguin!

cant believe they leave the veer out...
