Cannot Text without wifi

Huwaii Ascend
Just talk and text


My phone works great except that it will not text unless I am in wi-fi. For whatever reason my texts will not send and I cannot receive them without wifi. I have changed my sms service to one recommended by Republic Wireless and I have gone through all the steps they have given me. I am able to call without wifi but I just cannot text or receive texts.

Almost always, the cause of this is having cellular data turned off in your Android Settings. Check these settings here: How to Confirm Basic Network Settings on the Huawei Ascend 5W – Republic Help
