A few questions for you.
Could you check to see what firmware you have on the phone?
Settings > About phone > Build number - should be 1_65K_1027. If you have the letter G or H, rather than K, follow these instructions to get that updated:
Also, check these settings:
- Tap Settings.
- Tap Wireless and networks.
- Tap Mobile networks.
- Make sure that both Data enabled and Data roaming is checked.
- Network Mode needs to be CDMA / EvDo auto.
- System select needs to be Automatic.
It's possible that it could be a lingering effect of moving your number from one phone to the other, but it seems like texts should at least send. What happens when you try to send?
