It may well be you need a new sim? Is the phone working ok for everything else except sending texts?...Can you send texts to anyone else?

Try taking the sim out and cleaning it gently and reinserting it and try again...

Check your postcode for any network faults http://status.o2.co.uk/
Are calls working OK?
