An instance of Date does not have a UTC() method. On iOS and in Normal JavaScript(TM), UTC() exists and returns the correct value.

Test case

var thisDate=Date.UTC(2005,7,8);
Ti.API.info("Number of milliseconds from January 1, 1970 to August 8, 2005, according to universal time " + thisDate);

Output / Logs

1064                  TiAPI  I  Number of milliseconds from January 1, 1970 to August 8, 2005, according to universal time 1123459200000

    Actually, upon testing this again, I can't get it to reproduce either. Go ahead and close this invalid :)

    The error was probably caused by .UTC() being called on a date object instance, whereas it is actually a method of the [Date](https://developer.mozilla.org/en/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/Date) constructor. I hope you can appreciate the time it can take us to reproduce issues that are any more complex than this, and thus why a test case is always required. Please refer to [Creating a Test Case](https://wiki.appcelerator.org/display/guides/How+to+Submit+a+Bug+Report#HowtoSubmitaBugReport-CreatingaTestCase) for guidance. Thanks
