I purchased the phone in February this year. Though there have been issues with the piece since the very beginning...it used to hang, reboot or take ages for applications to open up...this one problem has me pulling my hair out. I can't send smses from my Nokia E 72.
I tried restoring factory settings, but it's asking for some code...which I unfortunately don't remember (must have set it earlier). Could anyone suggest anything other than a hard reset? The message centre, etc. is all in order.

Set you Message Storage Destination to Memory card and delete unwanted Smses or Bluetooth received files from the phone memory. To do this, Go to message settings and there's an option with "Default destination" or something like that, and set the Storage to Memory Card.
You'll also need to close the programs that are running on the background. To do this press and hold the "Menu" key, and to close the particular program, press "C".
Thanks for using FixYa.
If the SIM works fine in other phones, there is a phone issue. See if you're eligible for a warranty replacement (eligible if purchased new from AT&T within the last year or if purchased refurbished from AT&T within the last 90 days). If ineligible and you have insurance, use it... there will be a $50 deductible applied to your next bill. If ineligible and you haven't got insurance, get a replacement through somewhere like ebay or craigslist, upgrade (never EVER use wirefly or amazon, trust me) through AT&T preferably, or purchase a gophone (AT&T prepaid) from walmart, walgreens, wherever (If you go to RadioShack, they'll do everything for you). You just put your SIM in it and it will have your phone number and contract information... you don't have to sign up for prepaid service.
I had a similar problem on 2 of my previous nokias. Usually if u take the sim card out and put it back in, and make sure it's all the way in then it's usually fine...at least for a while; but u should be able to call ur cell provider and talk to tech support explaining the issue and i think if you've had the phone less than a year it's still under manufacture warrenty and they'll do a phone exchange with u, sending u a new phone. Hope this helps, good luck.
