Do you have 3G and cellular data enabled? Can you browse the internet with your data?

Go to Settings > Messages
Try turning off iMessage then turn it back on. You will have to log in with your Apple ID and password again.
You should be back up and running again. However, sometimes it takes some time for iMessage to activate if Apple servers are having issues

Oops. Sorry I mis-read. Had a big lunch lol

It sounds like Cellular data is your issue here If iMessage works on wifi but not on data, then internet should be the same issue.

1) If 3G and Data are enabled, Do you have data blocked on your account?
2) I assume Voice and regular texting works on your phone?

No blocks, it started ever since I updated to iOS 7 iMessage only sends as a text rather than iMessage but connect to wifi and it works, my internet works still and I can browse and use apps just iMessage no longer sends on my 3G

Try resetting your network settings and try again
Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
