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.
