    @breeken- my service provider sends me info about my location(+ a small one line ad)......on my previous nokia phone it was displayed on my homescreen...but i thnk android 2.1 doesn't support such thngs from service provider...so it is created into a sms......

    Installing a firmware not supported by your provider is most likely to void your warranty. While it is possible to revert back to your original firware, it's not very easy. I suggest mucking about with your phone for a few weeks to ensure it's all fully working. Then when you're happy update the firmware yourself. Chances are your phone wlll remain working, and on the updated firmware, long past the manufacturer's and your providers warranty. And all the time you benefit from the updates.

    in the standard sms app, press menu, then select settings, scroll down until you get to "CB settings", and un tick "CB activation"
    This will stop the "sms", your right, Nokia etc just dispaly it as location (ie: name of the cell site your attached to)

    You can disable under SETTING-->Call-->Cell broadcast (uncheck)

    Good Luck!.
