I have a prepaid unlimited texting acct. on my iphone 5s.  Has been connected and working great for over a month now.  As of yesterday I can no longer send or receive text messages unless I am connected to wifi.  I have never had a problem sending or receiving text messages until yesterday.  I have automatic top ups and last payment went through this week so it's not because I haven't paid my fees.  What could be the reason for this and how do I fix it?

Turn iMessage off so it's not sending through data.
