Default Weird message received

Earlier I got a "text" message that said "OTA OK" and the from: was '902'. Any idea what this could be? I have a 7100t.

Im fairly certain about this but not 100%. OTA = Over The Air. Probably a message from your carrier updating or confirming your over the air capabilities.

I could also be totally wrong about this so please anyone feel free to correct me if I am so.

OTA definitely stands for Over The Air and is usually used to refer to a type of application download to the BB device (OTA as opposed to using the app loader). Why you got the message like that on your phone? Not sure, never heard of that one before.

T-Mobile regularly sends out such updates.

Yes i get these all the times and when I contacted T-Mo they told me that T-Mo sends these message just like a ping message to make sure all the devices are reachable after the do any repair or reboot on the systems. so don't pee in your pants for this because this is not spam like Sony sent one last 3 months back
