I would check your iMessage settings to make sure it’s set to “send as sms if iMessage is not available”.

Do you have service? Or does it say "No service"?
Also try simply restarting your phone and reinserting your sim card if you haven't already.

If you do not routinely use data you should go to Settings > Messages  and turn off iMessage. This will ensure all your messages are sent. Both you and friends who have already started conversations may need to delete them and start new conversations.
