The phone allocates a certain amount of storage for messages on a whole. Even though there may still show space available for text messages, you have hit an invisible "limit" and the phone is now defaulting to MMS messages because there is "room" there. Delete a fair amount of messages and you should be able to start sending regular text's again.

Feb 4, 2014 - MMS sending and receiving pictures no longer working on Nokia Lumia. up vote 2 down vote favorite. In early 2014 I installed "Update 3" (8.0.10517.150) and the "Lumia Black" software ... "Can't send message Try again".
Did you already set the GPRS and MMS settings of your phone i think that your'e MMS and GPRS setting is isn't yet configured...I can't send you the procedure on how to configure it cause I don't know what service are you using..
Your phone cannot receive picture messages or MMS if the GPRS setting is not configured properly. Call your network service provider and ask for the settings. They will send it to you and give you instructions and information in the use of the MMS service. Usually there is a load requirement in receiving and sending MMS if you are using a prepaid sim.
n order to activate MMS (picture, audio video messages) settings you are required to call your customer care and ask them what sms you have to send in order to receive mms settings. Once you get the settings save them on your phone and make it default settings. Switch off your mobile take out your sim for 02 minutes and restart your mobile with sim inside it. Now you are ready for sending or receiving picture messages.
clean up ALL your messages.
For some reason when you are full up on messages instead of telling you it will just start sending MMS instead of SMS messages.
Just got to Menu > Messaging > Options > Cleanup Messages > All
After that, it will start sending SMS again.
I work in TSD for ATT , and from multiple cases like this , customer do not know that ATT requires that all PDA phones do require a PDA data package , without this you will not be allowed to send or receive MMS messages.
