From field in text message changed?

Text messages I received via LJ used to have the logged-in users name in the 'From' field of the text message, and the message was prepended with '(LJ)'. The last message I have that worked like this was on Sept. 5, 2002.

I have not used text messaging for a while, and I just reactivated it (I didn't realize it got turned off when I let my paid account lapse for a bit). Now, the message is not prepended with '(LJ)' (which is fine by me), and the 'From' field just says ''.

Did I misconfigure something, or did this change? Is it possible to change it back?

BTW, my provider is Verizon Wireless.
