I read this thread some time back and I`ve been thinking about an article since... Scientists have discovered a way to send radiowaves faster than the speed of light - LINK-FTL

Now isn`t it possible that the experiment ( or a more complex, but similar project in the future ) sent the radio wave that far back that we`re receiving it as a blank sms ? Funny thing is that no scientist involved with these tests could determine such an error since he will eventually receive the same radio wave ( to him the radio wave may seem to arrive immediately, but there`s no way of telling how long it took to arrive

I know this sounds sci-fi, but it`s one the few things that could logically explain this as far as I know...

Most plausible option though is a bug in the providers systems...

Now I am really freaked out!
About 10 minutes ago, i received a text message with the date stamp "December 12th, 2034". There was no number on it and the message read "HELP"

A couple of weeks ago my brother Ben and I were in the movie theatre about to watch Harry Potter 6 (It was MY second time!) and during the previews he turned off his phone. A few moments later the phone turned on by itself and he received a text message. The time stamp on the message was December 6, 2019 at 11:35 AM. At the time he received it, it was about 4:00 PM on July 17, 2009... The body was blank, and there was NO number on the information. It wasn't even an unknown. Just no number. He immediately deleted the message being really frightened. I wonder if he shouldn't have deleted that message... ? Spooky, huh? Oh and by the way the above message is from Miranda who is lying.

Didn't we figure out that the phone will take the date-time stamp from the senders phone and attach that to the message?

If so, that means that it could be a prank.

This needs testing.

Change your phones date to a date in the future and then send a friend a message. Get that friend to relay to you the date at which the message was sent.

Hopefully, the network will stamp the date-time because that would make this message from the future stuff cool

that's not going to change the time that the email will be stamped with the internet timeserver.

you can't change the time on your ISP or email server

the real answer is not that interesting its a default set up on there sms server. the reason yours said 19 instead of 09. You probably had a que come off the internet they tend to be in unreadable format if not done properly. They show up with nothing but the nuber the sms server fills in the rest you didnt miss anything though was probably viagra ad.

I get e-mails with future dates all the time. I think it is just a marketing ploy.
I have had phone calls from msyterious numbers as well; one time I even had a phone call that had all symbols instead of numbers on the caller id.
I can do that trick pretty easy. There is an internet site where you can prank call people and add in different things on the caller id.
A person can also set their computer or cell phone to a future date which would make a call or email look like it is coming from the future.

Any updates on this thread?

I noticed 2 messages on my phone ( haven't realized when i got them) dated 2031 jan 1 00:00 .

First message only letter "b"
Second message only letter "e"

I see that many think it may be some marketing scheme, but i ain't from US and can't imagine trying to sell me something

Also i realize that many think that these massages may be jokes, pranks. When you play a prank on someone you sent a detailed text making that someone to believe something , not send empty or one letter messages.

I for one won't believe in a marketing scheme or a prank because it doesn't fit the profiles of either one

I also get texts from the future from the 901 numbers. The year always ends in 9, they're always sent at 11:59, and they're always blank.
I got the most recent one yesterday and it was dated 5-12-2019. I've also recieved a text with the year stated as 2059.
Has anyone figured this out yet?

HAHAHA You wanna know something really funny? I lived in that area code when it was changed from 609, lol!!! The wierd part is thinking of moving back to Philly area, which is not far from that code and I know that knowing me, if there was ever a possibility to send a text to the past I would definately go for it, And it may even be from an 856 area code!!! Do you live near Florida now? LOL! And do you maybe have a 447 exchange (I am asking cause that's my exchange for my cell phone) and maybe it's me trying to send a message to myself and possibly dialing wrong? LOL. Just kidding, but hey, It's a fantastical dream! It would be so cool if it was a text from the future, but unfortunately there's probably some mundane programming glitch issue. Or maybe not. I'll let you know for sure in 9 years, via ATS of course.
And well, My new career is programming and so maybe I would actually be one of the first people to try this new technology. Maybe even I will help to develop it, that'd be righteous! But, Alas, I have the analytical side of me screaming "It's not as fantastical as a text from the future!" Darn my analytical side!

Im so glad to here that im not the only one whom received a sms from future, mine had just a square when the sms was opened, the sender was unknown and from 2012 august 16 i received this in 2008. i was totaly freaked at the time but have learned to live with it. What was very odd was that the sms could not be send forwarded or edit. At that time i had a Sony ericson k700i. It is even beter to hear that im not Alone.
