Its a message stuck on your sim card. Just delete it and it should go away. If it was like mine it would go away, what I did was put the sim in a regular phone and delete it. Then put it back in your HD2 and it should be gone. If that doesn't work get a new sim card from T-mobile they should replace it for free for you.

Try moving it from the sim to your phone and then deleting it. I remember getting this when I first got my HD2 and that was what I did.

Future 129's just go straight to the phone so no problem getting rid of them.

I seem to recall that one of the potential causes of this would be having visual voicemail enabled on the account without the vvm app running on the phone.

Sounds like its a notification message for VVM then. VMM likely normally intercepts it before you get a chance to see it would be my guess

Thumbs up I asked T-Mobile about this...

T-Mobile told me that this was a page from someone leaving you a voicemail message. If you call to check your voicemail options on T-Mobile, there is an option to not allow yourself to be paged. The only weird thing I noticed with this is that whenever I get one of those messages, it never contains any informaton. I started using the visual voice mail and I still get the 129 messages. After some thought I decided to not turn it off, any extra reminders that I have a voice mail are welcome!
