I'm having the same issue. Some had luck with updating programming (*228 Verizon).

I recently updated over the air to ios 5.1 over the air on my iphone. Now when I send texts to other iphone users, it is showing my old apple id as my identification on their iphones...instead of my name/mobile number shown in their contacts. I recently updated my apple id to a new email address because I changed carriers. Accessing itunes store with new apple id works fine.
So I send a text to my friend and he sees "firstname.lastname@example.org" instead of my name which is in his contacts. The same thing happens with other people with iphones. I have VW as my carrier. If I send texts to non iphone users, they show my name as listed in their contacts. So definitely an iphone to iphone issue.
I tried reprogramming the phone using *228 with VW and pressing 1. It hasn't helped. It also went back to normal for a day so I thought it was fixed, but is happening again now.
This is so frustrating. My iphone friends don't know who I am when I text them so they aren't responding!!!!
