unplug the battery and sim card while the phone is on. If that doesn't work ensure 3G is enabled. Also, try sending a test SMS to yourself to test the sending and receiving.

Try a battery pull (take out battery and SIM card out for 30 seconds - 1 minute and restart device) as well. Not too sure why you can't send messages. 3G has to be enabled as well.

Are you using an SMS App you downloaded from the Play Store such as Sliding Messaging or ChompSMS? Try this: -back up your SMS inbox--> https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.zegoggles.smssync -delete everything in your inbox -restore everything from the backup
