Hey there BrookeBrewer,
Congrats on the new iPhones! Let's get those text messages flowing. Are you having issues receiving texts too? What zip code are you in? Do you receive an error message when you try to send? Please provide additional details so I can better assist.

I went to the verizon store this morning. They found that for whatever
reason the text capability on my account had been turned off. They
turned it on and I am up and running. Thank you for responding.
