Have you tried calling TMobile and asking thm to remove VVM from your account? Just because your previous phone didn't have VVM doesn't mean a SMS wasn't being sent out.

Also check for some possible solutions.

I get this even after ditching VVM. It has to do with voicemail though. It only shows up for me if someone leaves me a voicemail or if I have any saved. What I do to get rid of it is open it up, transfer it from the sim to the phone, then delete it. And delete the voicemail(s), of course. I've called T-Mo numerous times about this too, they're aware of it & they claim they're working on it. Which I believe, because I used to not be able to delete it at all & now I can.

There is an empty SMS message from 129 number that shows up in the inbox. After deleting it, it keeps coming back after a relatively short period of time. I DO NOT get any notifications about new SMS messages, so it's likely that this is some sort of phantom message.
I have disabled HTC messaging app and disabled the HTC messaging service (so that new SMS notifications contain "Save as read" and "Dismiss" options) and installed "SMS patch" application (from one of the other threads here) so fix the SMS counter.
Anyone has same issue?
I signed up for Micorsoft MyPhone syncronization, I wonder if it has something to do with syncing up the phone?
