When Samsung Galaxy Ace is turned off, why do texts then only show the date I received it when I turn it on, not the date it was sent? Can I change those settings?

When you turn it on, they are received at that point hence that time dilemma. No, there is not a way to change that.

I have that same situation.

Just like Zaphod said, the time and date is when they are received onto your device, not when the person had sent it.

Thanks for your speedy responses.
Disappointing - something that Samsung might want to revise in future additions of their phones. Being a Senior, I don't have the phone on all the time.

It's the same on ALL phones. Zaphod uses an LG Nexus 4.
