i think it works when you are holding a constant convo with someone it shows the beginning time of the convo... now for instance if in between that convo one of you pauses during (don't know how long?) it will show the time where the convo picked up, and so forth... if that helps any

Depends, If its AT&T to AT&T should be almost instant unless the phone is unavailable (No signal, in use.. etc ). From AT&T to a different network.... when it gets there... heh.. Unfortunately No network gaurantees on how long it will take to be delivered due to so many factors that are usually your provider has no control over.

I'm not worried about how long it will take, I'm just wondering how the iPhone dictates when to show the time of the SMS message.

I think that I read somewhere that it works in 5 minute intervals. If your conversation lasts 10 mins then you should have 2 timestamps...

what about if more than 5 minutes lapse between texts?
No it's weird. If you keep a conversation going it won't time stamp anything. But if you stop a while (I guess 15+ minutes?) then it will re-time stamp it. I'm not even sure if it's 15 minutes, it might be 30...it's just weird. I'd like time on every txt message...
