    Most curious... Judging from the screenshot, am I right in thinking you've got a jailbroken phone?

    When did the problem start?

    Well this isn't a documented issue, so it's clearly something in the jailbreak messing up. Could you try re-installing the stock software, checking it works, then applying the jailbreak again, rather than upgrading from a jailbroken system? Might not make any difference, but worth a shot.

    It's used for SMS Delivery confirmation on some carriers. You can google SMS delivery confirmation to find out more. If you are using a non-standard messaging app, it might have a setting to turn this off.

    *0# is for delivery confirmation, not *N# (as far as I know anyway, maybe some carriers are different)
