my brightside phone wont send texts

After using my phone for a month it just started saying "message failed when sending a text.   I have cleared or deleted all my texts but it didn't change this outcome.  It puts the attempted text in the draft file.  How can I fix this?

Whoa! Texting is a vital part of my life. I don't even want to imagine how you are feeling. You have already completed some steps that we would also have you check here. (Thanks for doing that)
When you power the phone off/on do the messages go through? Can you check the memory for your device?
