Default TMobile Sending phone codes?

Hey guys..
I've been on custom ROMs since I got my phone. All of the ROMs have been AOSP-based, not TW.

Recently, starting around Dec 2 (at least, that's when it's become noticable), I've been getting seemingly random TST messages from a "122" number. All the message has is:

Activate:dt=6

What is this? It *could* be related to installing new ROMs (wiping, factory reset, etc.) but I'm not 100% on that yet.

Thoughts?

Quick note to add - This SHOULD have been in the Q&A thread, d'oh. Can a mod move it, please?

Thanks!

This has something to do with activating Visual Voicemail with T Mobile.

I don't know if Visual Voicemail will work on an AOSP rom or not, or what other APK you'd need to have installed. But if I'm not mistaken Activate:dt=6 is the code to send TO number 122 to activate Visual VM on the phone.

Why you are getting that text FROM 122 is a mystery.

I'd probably call T Mobile and get their tech support people to explain it.
Do you want insanely better battery drain when your phone is idle? Check out this thread!

Ah, thanks! That cleared it up! I thought I double-checked, but apparently I was drunk - yes, it's going TO 122, not FROM. (Yup, the Visual VM apk works on AOSP based ROMs, I'm guessing that since it's a custom ROM, the MMS's are getting logged and are visible in the MMS apk.

Thanks!
