Why can't I send and receive text messages with my 3G Android?


AC Question

I have been a Tracfone customer for 3 years. I live in a rural state. Recently I was notified that my old 2G phone would no longer work. I thought I would take a big leap to an Android 3G phone. Although I never could make actual phone calls with my old 2Gphone from my home, I could successfully send and receive text messages. Now I can not send or receive texts with this Android phone from by home.Why is this?
