Have you tried resting your phone?(battery pull depending on device) as well make sure 3G is enabled 🙂

what phone do you have?
Well text messages don't use data unless they are iMessage or picture message. So being on or off wifi shouldn't affect that. If your on an iPhone go to settings and make sure cellular data is on as well if your using iMessage.

seen you posted twice here so thinking you don't know but you can edit or add to posts by clicking on the post you did. Then in the top corner of that post it will give you an option to edit or delete your post. Click on edit and you can change or add to that post instead of making another complete post.

It's probably because you have iMessage turned on which requires a data connection. Are the text bubbles blue? IF that's the case you need to go into settings, then choose Messages and turn iMessage off. Sometimes it can take a bit of time for Apple's servers to realize you do not have iMessage anymore but you should start receiving text messages (in green bubbles) over the cell network this way. Make sure you do this when you are at home on your wifi if this all sounds right!

Make sure you star the answer that helped you. That way out gets pushed to top for others who have the same problem later. Glad you got it working.
