When I got my phone, it had the same problem. Check the message center number and see what it is. You can access this my selecting "messaging", then "message settings" and "text message". You will see an option for message center number. Select it and it will show the number for your routing tower. I am not sure what yours is, but mine is +13123149810. This is the number the AT&T help line gave me...

Did you ever find a solution to this problem? The exact same thing happened to my friend two days ago. Someone sent them the same message repeatedly, and he can no longer receive any messages, other than multimedia.
Check in your sent folder and look at the envelope next to the message. Each envelope has a check box at the top right corner.
<>If the person you are sending the message to also has Verizon: -If it was received by the other person, the box will be checked. -If it has an arrow next to it, it's still in the process of being sent; possibly because the intended recipient is out of service. -If you click on the sent message and scroll down to the bottom, it will tell you what time the other person received it at.
<>If the person doesn't have Verizon, all the messages you send (regardless of whether or not they were delivered) will have an arrow in the box and it will not tell you what time the person received the message at.
Sometimes, a message will have an I in the box. I think it stands for Incomplete; this only happens to me when I send a message to more than one person and the message doesn't get delivered for some reason.
On every phone there are settings that can stop you sending texts. However all phones should still receive texts even if all the settings were changed. As the text message is directed to you mobile number you should still be receiving?
When you compose your text and select contact does the phone move them to the out/sent box?
Settings to check for sending are your 'message centre number' (your network provider can supply and they are normally different for pay monthly and pay & go) 'Message sent as' should be 'text' (not fax or email etc).
Text problems are common where people change or delete digits from the message centre number by mistake.
If you cannot receive texts i would recommend speaking to your provider for help as it may be your account details at their end? (beyond your control). Hope that helps?
Try calling someone. If that doesnt work and an animated voice pops up do what it says and then you'lll get a txt that'll tell you that you're allowed to txt, call, etc. If this is not the case, call the carrier and ask if the txting is supposed to be working and ask them any other questions you might have.
