    Yeah, I live in Pakistan and I work with one of the VAS providers here. The reason that I know a little bit more is that I'm sending out the messages myself And we want users to send a reply so we have not done anything to the message. It works perfectly fine on all other handsets but nexus one.

I don't know what these kind of number's are called in other countries but we call it shortcode. I've also heard people calling it SNO. Normally these kind of messages are sent from the mobile operator or VAS provider...
    I remember reading somewhere (cannot remember where now) that the short number formats are the problem. Android isn't designed to handle them. At the time I read that there was no work-around, and I haven't seen anything more since then. I may have read it as an issue on the actual Google forums, now that I think about it.

    The issue is with the name of the Sender. If there is a gap, for e.g. - (hyphen) or a space then this problem occurs.

    I am struggling with this same issue for a very long time now.

    It has been reported at many places:

    See here:
    1. • View topic - Bug Report (Desire): Messages from shortcode delivered twice
    2. • View topic - Bug Report (Hero): Wrong user gets attached to sms.
    3. Issue 6526 - android - SMS from short number - Project Hosting on Google Code

    So far, cant do much!
