Where Did The Messages Go?
My Phone was Fast
I have already written about my old fashioned phone being a day fast because it didn't know about the leap year and so counted the 29th February as the 1st of March. I changed the date early this morning.
My Messages Disappeared
I got a couple of phone texts today. The first one arrived while I was out on a walk but when I went to read it again inside, it had disappeared. The sun was shining this morning when I got the message, so I thought I must have deleted it by mistake when reading it.
I got a couple more texts this afternoon and replied to them but again, I could not find them when I went looking later. I was very puzzled.
Can You Guess Why?
You already have all the information I had when I realised what had happened, so can you guess why I couldn't find the messages?
Think of it as a detective story!
Maybe you already know?
When I changed the date on my phone, messages that came in this morning were stored in with yesterday's messages. The phone thought yesterday was 9th March, so today's messages and yesterday's were all lumped in together for one day. When I scrolled back through the times, I found my "lost" messages in with yesterday's.
