    Question My Line1 name suddenly changed to "msisdn1" !

    Whenever I turn on my phone, I see the display, "My number: <number>". But when I started up my phone just now, I noticed it said "msisdn1: <number>" for some reason. I thought maybe the phone characters got garbled and decided to restart my phone - same thing again. I have an unlocked RAZR I'm using btw and when I went into phone status under tools, my line 1's name was changed to "msisdn1". I got rid of the name and restarted the phone and it went back to displaying "My number: <number>". Is this something T-Mobile might have done with one of their OTA messages and why? Just wondering if anyone had any similar experiences. Thanks.

    msisdn is the tech term used by t-mobile, it just means mobile phone # in laymen terms
    My opinions and statements do not reflect the policies or stance of T-Mobile

    T-Mobile, RSR

    I see, so it's a T-Mobile thing. But does this mean this was done by an OTA or something? I got a couple of those in the last few weeks. And why would they relabel my line name? Would getting rid of the name affect anything bad, you think?

    My unlocked RAZR says the same thing. It is a little annoying but not affecting the phone in any way, I hope????
