Receiving empty sms after registration

Same problem for me with the same french operator. 
I receive those SMS (_@ or _/\@) when I have a message in my voice-mailbox.
Clearly they should be interpreted by the phone to indicate that a new message is waiting to be listened.
I also have duplication of SMS messages in my FR every time I register.

I don't know if this operator uses special protocol with this empty SMS or if the FR should interpret them. Does anybody knows something about that ?

I receive an empty sms each time I register with my phone provider  
(Bouygues in France, Simio in Spain), with an origin address like "_@".

Has anybody got the same behavior?
Is it coming from the phone or from the provider?

Also, sms duplicate in the message box each time the phone switch on,  
I suppose it's a bug, but I'm not sure where to report it.

Have a nice day,
