What did you do just before you noticed the change? Install and app? Upgrade the OS? Etc.?

I cannot find anything on the RIM support site so My guess would be the carrier made the change. Give them a call but I doubt you will have any luck if they did do the change unless a lot of people complain.

another thought is the length of the message. experiment and see if a different length makes it appear as before.

Dubdub's question is a good one. App's can change things.
