    Default [SMS] Message waiting indicator/text on 1.1.3

    I am still having the annoying problem getting text messages whenever I check my voicemail or get new voicemail (with a small GSM carrier in the U.S) I get a text telling me I have a new message, or if I don't and just go in to listen to my old voicemail, i get text saying "message waiting off"). This started after upgrading to 1.1.1 and hasn't gone away sense. I talked to several people and the most common answer is this:

    The "message waiting off" is a text message that the carrier sends to our phones to activate/deactivate the MWI (message waiting indicator) on GSM phones. It's a special kind of text that the phone uses to let you know of you have a voicemail waiting or not. Since you have an iPhone, and the iPhone doesn't seem to support the MWI, the phone is just showing you the text any other phone would just use to turn the indicator off.

    Anyone have a fix for this? So sick of getting these text messages!!!

    Same issue.
    1.0.2 firmware didn't have this issue. I'd receive the voicemail notification...but not the text. When I upgraded to 1.1.1, I started to receive both. Now at 1.1.3, I am still receiving both.

    happysmp....

    I would think we just need to figure out what area of the iPhone software affects this and what was changed between 1.0.2 and 1.1.1. How we do this, I have no idea!

    Mine stopped... did yours? still on 1.1.3, so don't know if it was my phone company that changed something. I am not in Canada, but the number coming up on the texts was a Canadian area code.

    Rogers Canada, here

    I get the same - SMS and Voicemail notification since upgrading to 1.1.3. I'm on 1.1.4 now and just tested it. Still happening.

    No big hassle, but it's weird.
    Can I sync my iPhone to my Newton?
