    Is it possible to have a time stamp for every text message when viewing a text message/iMessage/SMS conversation in the iPhone text message app?

    I can see the last text time when looking at all text conversations and the "Load Earlier" option with the date on it but there are huge gaps in the conversations with labeling time. :confused:

    Pull the text bubbles to the left. The times will show up.

    Drag the message screen left to see the time stamps.

    I don't find swiping left very intuitive. Hope they change it.

    To my knowledge, there was never a time where time stamps for every message was always shown.

    Your right. It did have them more often though and I guess that's why I thought it was for every message.

    Hold your finger on a bubble, choose 'More' then select a message and press the trash icon.

    One more reason to get BiteSMS. It will show you the time stamp on every message automatically if you want. Let's hope it can happen!

    There are better alternatives to bitesms out there. I have time stamps on all my messages and no bitesms installed.

    Flex Allows you to do it, so does SMS timestamps, there's also another one which I can't remember off the top of my head.

    Maybe just for time stamps there are better alternatives.

    And both things you mentioned still require jailbreak, soooo....

    If you mean without jailbreak, there is no option that I am aware of.

    Bitesms is considered one of the best tweaks for Jailbreak. After using it for a few weeks, it messed up my mms (well known issue) and also made it impossible to remove. Luckily I'm patient and started making it work.
