Did you add a text App?

Open the messages folder and press the BB key to compose a new message. there you will see a selection to do SMS and MMS.

When you allowed the battery to completely die it may have scrambled the OS . Try doing a complete recharge and pull the battery while powered. This will reload the OS clean and hopefully reset the BB to where it was before the power issue. Also when you allow a LI battery to completely drain it may not recover and will only recharge partially. If this was the first time you may be ok but if you allow this to happen often you may need to replace the battery.

Yes, he was wrong.
The new batteries that blackberry use prefer constant top-ups than draining and recharging.

Did you change themes? You might have your SMS Folder set to "hidden". From the home screen, hit Menu once to display all your icons, then hit Menu again and select "Show All". If it appears but is a ghost image, roll the cursor over it and use the Menu button a third time to uncheck "Hide". You can then uncheck "Show All" and have the rest of the hidden/ghost icons disappear again.
