This is driving me crazy, everytime my phone picks up a different tower it notifies me with a SMS. It really doesn't help living in between two towers, I get around 50 SMSs an hour when at home. This is the second time this has happened, last time I had to reset my phone to factory settings which is a pain. Now it has started again a month later, I really don't want to reset my phone every month, surely there is a better solution?

I can definitely appreciate that you want to stop the messages- 50 messages an hour would drive me crazy too! It sounds like you have Cell Broadcast active on your handset - you definitely shouldn't need to reset your phone to stop Cell Broadcast messages.
Cell Broadcast is a handset function, and you'll be able to turn this off through your phone.
If you do have a HTC device as LawStudent 18 suggests and it's running Sense, you can turn it off by jumping into your Settings Menu > Call > Cell Broadcast and then disable this setting.
I've run though this on our "try the phone" section for HTC One X here, and the setting looks like this on the One X:
If you're running a non-Sense device, just post back with the model and I'll be able to step you through turning off Cell Broadcast on your phone.
