Note: If you exit from this View screen, you will need to go to the Messaging ➔ Inbox screen, the Recent Calls screen, or you will need to dial your Voicemail contact to access your messages.
Note: Messages can also be accessed by navigating to your Inbox (Menu ➔ Messaging ➔ Inbox).

You'll have to call your service provider. The SIM card stores a phone number for the network's text message center. For some reason, this phone has a glitch where it deletes the center number. Your service provider might be able to update it remotely but I had to take the SIM out and place it in an older phone so I could enter the text message center number manually. This fixed the problem.
Unfortunatly you have to call your cell carrier to RTN your phone which will erase everything in your phone. You may try to go to a store to get a software update. FYI. I worked for Sprint for 3 years.
sir you don't have to reset that, ether you reset that you still cannot send or recieve picture message. to do that you have to use another phone that has a coniguration of GPRS and MMS for cingular, you have to manually configure it.
