LG G2 Text messaging not working Code 97


I activated my LG G2 yesterday and everything seemed to working but I noticed I am not recieving and can not send text messages. Phone calls come in and I can make outgoing calls. As well as data such as emails. When trying to send a text message it says Service not avaliable Error Code 97. I also noticed if I go on Google play I tried to download an SMS app and got error 491, I'm not sure if they are related. RIght now I am using the messaging app that comes loaded with the G2 and just got the cell phone so it is brand new.

Can anyone assist with this?
