Default I get a strange text message

Please Login to Remove!

I'm not sure exactly, but either when someone reads a Yahoo message I send or when I receive a message to my Yahoo account, I get a strange text message with address of a number and a subject that is //gibberish. It looks like an SMS.

How do I turn this off? I have Confirm Delivery, Confirm Read, and Send Read Receipts all off on my Blackberry.

It might be a network message from RIM, Does it happen all the time?

Does it say "This message is used to carry data...."

Happens with all the Yahoo mails, but not BES.

No, I've seen that message when I re-initialized, but this is after each Yahoo message.

Sounds like something in Yahoo. Don't know, but I imagine they offer an SMS alert when you receive a new email. I would look for that and see what is enabled on your account.
