    Welcome to Android Central! Which phone? Are you trying to use Hangouts to send SMS messages or Hangouts instant messages?

    In the first message you say you "disconnected the service to use the app only". Are you saying you canceled your cellular service? If so - you lost your phone number, which is a primary component of sending text messages.

    hallux's question is crucial here. Are you using Hangouts to try to text someone over wi-fi only? You won't be able to. Hangouts can't send SMS over wi-fi (and if you cancelled your mobile plan, then you can't use SMS at all). You can send a Hangouts instant message over wi-fi, but the recipient also has to have Hangouts installed.
