Tried everything, BB8530 won't send texts

Hey y'all. I recently activated my BB8530 (last night actually), and this morning, it refuses to send texts. And I cannot seem to receive texts either. I can access the internet and such.

I have tried every suggestion, including changing the US+1, to nine digits for dialing, etc. It still failed to send a message.

The error message reads as "SMS error 97, Message ID 185: Service denied"

Can somebody help me out?

**Editted** Okay, i think i got it fixed. What you probably have to do is try updating your roaming services. You may even have to try to update it TWICE before it actually works. It worked for me. Smiley Happy so for now, its been solved.
