Is there any way I can change the message settings on my LG Nexus 4 to show the time a message was sent to my phone, rather than the time it was received?

This was raised as an issue in June 2009 and despite being discussed extensively there doesn't appear to be any way to show the original timestamp in vanilla Android. This leaves you with a couple of options:

  1. Use a custom ROM like CyanogenMod which supports this, or
  2. Install an app like SMS Sent Time which appends the message sent time to the message itself
