Can't activate my texting plan

yesterday I added a text plan to my Samsung Intensity II for the first time but am still unable to send or receive texts today. I have turned it off and on and removed the battery. Trying to avoid a total reset that will erase my contacts. Suggestions?

I don't know if this will help, but try *228 to refresh your network.  I know some basic phones have to update themselves after a plan change.  I recent user added money to their account and the banner didn't update for several hours.

*611 is the next call you should make to Verizon customer assistance.

Being able to text is important to communication today, jmantini. Let's ensure yours starts working. Do you have a prepaid phone, or standard monthly?
