Hi all

I'm trying to develop a windows mobile 5 managed application on AT&T 8525 smart phone, and on a prepaid plan from AT&T.

Unfortunately, the prepaid plan sim generates notification messages about the current balance preriodically, and this happens even if my application is running!!!

Is there anyway to trap, disable, or surpress system notification through managed code, phone settings, or registry hack?

I spent some time playing around with the registry settings, especially those under: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Notifications. However, I was not able to get it to work.

Note that the notification comes from the network as a USSD message.

I have been trying to find a solution for this problem for a while, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Stanley

I have been looking for a way to disable ignore get rid of etc etc of that annoying USSD message. If you come up with anything please shoot me an e-mail.

However... I have a nokia 5500 that I use with a prepaid sim sometimes and it does something wierd. Usually it will start ignoring the balance notification message. If I have the MP3 player going and I send and recieve texts through the nokia suite it will eventually stop showing the messages. Not sure why and my Nokia friend didn't know why either. It has to go through the whole thing again if you reboot the phone though. I'm afraid to upgrade the firmware as I might loos this really great feature.

But if you come across something let me know as I have been digging all over for a solution and there is almost no info on it out there other than frustrated customers.

Notification balloon suppression SOLVED
After much searching and tinkering I finally found a simple way to disable the annoying balance notification message that arrives after every data connection on the AT&T Pay As You Go service with a data package. This fix involves adding a single registry entry and it suppresses all USSD messages that originate from the carrier, even those that you might request manually.

Here is the registry change:

HLKM/ControlPanel/Phone
New value: SuppressUSSD := DWORD(1)

Add this value and (probably after a soft-reset) you will not be bothered with the $0.00 change notification messages.

I am new to registry editing. I am going into the phone folder (using PHM), Selecting "New DWORD value," typing "SuppressUSSD" in the value name field, entering 1 in the value data field, and selecting decimal. I am still getting the popup notifications.

Sorry to ask such a newbie question, but what am I doing wrong?

This would be on the Hermes. You can find a regedit tool by using the search function or just check in your programs directory (check all folders too, especially tools) as it may have been cooked in.

Cheers...
