You can try to reset network settings.. which will wipe out any saved Wi-Fi networks:

Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings

You may need to try another SIM card, which you can get free from a store. Also, make sure no blocks are on the line via My Verizon.

This should have nothing to do with wifi networks. There is a setting under iMessage which allows messages to be sent as SMS/MMS if iMessage is unavailable. Make sure that setting is turned on.

Have you turned on the "Send as SMS" tab in your Messages settings?

Settings

    -  Messages

           - Send as SMS   Toggle should be slid over so that the tab shows green.  Meaning it's turned on.
