Telus Mobility - "From" field not sent.

I have a telus mobility phone, and while the text messaging service sends the entire message fine, it sends only the message and not the username. I've set the service to be available to users on my friends-list only, but the users seem to expect that their name is being sent because they see "From: [username]" above the entry field for the message.

As a result, I get a lot of messages that are innocently anonymous - this is frustrating.

So if I'm logged into LJ and I send a message of "Test Message!" through the textmessaging service to myself, what I see on the phone resembles this:

6/10 4:33pm
MESSAGE
-
Subj: LJ:
Test Message!


My username isn't even there.
It's supposed to be, isn't it? Or am I wrong?
