nokia 6320 messaging

I have a query that has been posed to me by a friend, thinking that I was far more a verse with mobile telephones than I actually am. Is there anybody out there that can confirm that the following is possible. Between 2004 -2006 the content of a series of received text messages were altered or possibly fabricated. The message was saved to the save item memory of a nokia 6230. The nokia was not the receiving handset. The text messages that were saved in the saved item memory of the nokia 6230 contained all of the properties of a genuine unaltered received message. Namely from entry at date entry and time entry. The  messages had been altered or fabricated via another handset or via pc cd rom (similar to a pc suite supplied with a nokia 9100i handset) the puzzle using the equipment available pre 2006 is to explain the simple process that allows you to alter a received text message and retain the from date and time entries and stored in the saved items folder, so as give the appearance of a received text message.

My question is can the properties be altered so as to look as though the message was sent at a different date or time, your assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Re: nokia 6320 messaging

As I said before the question was posed to me by a friend, who is assisting in an court appeal. There is suggestion that a message property could be altered which would result in a false judgement. My question is simply whether it is possible, it would then be down to the lawyer to ascertain whether the process could be confirmed. In short is it possible to change the properties of a text message. Thank you for your help so far.

The answer is yes. It is possible to export the messages from the phone, modify the file, and then re-import into the same or another phone.

Re: nokia 6320 messaging

This is my first real experience of finding help from a forum, so I dont know whether my next question is appropiate or even allowed, so please accpet my apology in advance if I am about break any regulations. Would it be possible for a legal representative to make contact with you to ascertain whether your services could be employed to assist in the proving of your suggestion that a message properties could be altered.
