For those of you that find the “SMS Succesfully Sent” notification annoying on Windows Mobile 6.X you can disable it by modifying the phone registry. Please note that I always use “CeRegEditor” available from http://ceregeditor.mdsoft.pl/

To disable the SMS Sent Notification:

Open the registry and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Inbox\Settings. If the Settings folder does not exist, create it.

Look for SMSNoSentMsg (it is a DWORD value), change it to “0” (without quotations). If it does not exist, create it.

Some users who have been using unlocked phones on local providers (including Rogers and Fido) have been having issues with the time on text messages being wrong. This is due to the incorrect time being provided on the cell network. To correct, see below.

To remove the time issues of received text messages:

Open the registry and navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\OEM\PhoneSetting.

Create a new DWORD value called “TrustTimeZoneField” and set it to a value of “0” (without quotations).
