My good friend Det. Brian Roach of the Kansas City Police Department recently posted this tip on decoding SMS messages on a Motorola V3m
” Its there, the date & time is viewable in hex. Check the SMS folder, the applicable files should be named in a format such as “inbox000.dat, inbox001.dat”, etc….4076 bytes in size.Date/time string starts at 15th byte….15th byte is year, 16th is month, 17th is day….18th byte is hour, 19th byte is minutes and 20th byte is seconds.An example would be 05 10 18 12 24 49…October 18th 2005, 12:24:49.”
Thanks Brian for the great tip!
