    Welcome to Android Central! Which carrier do you have? Do you know the details of your plan? SMS isn't counted in minutes--it's counted in total text messages sent or received. So if you don't have an unlimited SMS plan, then you may have already used all of your SMS allotment for the month. Although usually it should still let you send a text--they'll just charge you extra for each additional text.

    I recall hearing (quite some time ago) of some carriers charging an extra fee to stop overages. Text messages might have fallen into that. Might that also be the case here?

    It might be something specific to tracphone. Have you called them? Perhaps there is something that needs to be set up still?
