You need to unregister the iphone to begin with. Follow the instructions here:

Sounds likes you do not have data on your phone. When messaging on your iPhone, it will either use iMessage or SMS.

iMessage requires a data connection to send, while SMS does not. To tell which one your iPhone is trying to send the message, check the colour of the message bubble. Blue means iMessage and SMS is a green bubble.
If the people who are not receiving your texts have blue bubbles, then you need to have a data plan or connect to WiFi to send them messages.
