I have an AT&T Go Phone, the Lumia 640, and I can't send text messages.  Some how in the settings the SMS number is gone.  I tried pulling every number off the SIM card and none of them work.  Please help!  🙂  I even tried reseting the phone and that didn't work either. 😞

Area code required for sending/receiving texts?

I'm on an iphone 4S. I can't send or receive texts without an area code. Is this normal? I don't need to use an area code to make a local phone call, so why with texts? This is going to be a problem for people that don't know they have to use the area code to text me.
