Your problem could be any number of things. For the quickest replies that get right to the meat of the matter, you should indicate what IS working (emails in/out, texts out, etc...)

Your radio could be off, There could be a network issue with your carrier, there could be a problem with SMS messaging on your account... the list goes on. Be specific if you want a specific answer.

Were they working on this phone before? If so start with a hard reset (Battery pull while the device is on). See if it clears and report back please!

Do you think that has something to do with the issue? If so, let's discuss what you hide. Otherwise, did you try the battery pull as suggested?

Don't hide stuff, just move it to the bottom. Either leave it there or remove/delete it. That's my advice.
