i think you answered you own question. poor cell service will do this to you. try powering off you phone at least once a day, and then back and this will help reset it. phones react strangely in poor cell areas. do you have wifi? if yes, some phones and some carriers allow you to automatically use wifi calling when wifi is available. iPhone 5s, 6, 6+ allows this as does sprint and verizon. not sure about tracphone which might use att networks and att does not yet allow wifi calling. just a thought if you live in a poor cell area. might be worth it to you to switch.
go on your time and date settings, select time zone and put GMT 1 (this is for UK) then set the correct time and save. and it should all be da same!!<br />

I work for tmobile tech, and we did have an outage recently in certain areas where the time stamp has been incorrect. The last time i checked this problem was resolved for the most part. I would really suggest you power cycle daily(turn your phone completely off) once a day. Try putting your Sim card into another phone and check if it continues. If it does its a network issue and please contact Tech support. Most likely it might be what we call a Trouble Ticket.
There are very few posts like this online, but I have been experiencing the same problem for quite some time now. Most of the time, I can make it go away by clearing out some saved messages (though one time it took a replacement SIM chip). At first, i thought it was because I have multimedia in my inbox, or outbox, but that isn't it. The problem seemed to start happening more and more frequently after cleaning up my outbox while allowing the inbox to grow when it occurred to me that it could be related to the total number of messages stored on the phone, or perhaps total size. For me, it happens at around 450-460 messages total. I've only now started writing down the numbers. I'm theorizing that it doesn't happen to everyone because the storage warning on the phone might be hardcoded to # of messages, and most people probably send/receive short messages. Mine are usually a page or two on average... What about you all? Does it clear up when clearing out messages? Does it appear to occur at near-max storage? I'm sure it is a hardware problem, but just in case, what service do you use? I use Cingular.
