The apple friends it does over wifi and the others it needs to do over the Sim card.
This is why it happens with non apple friends.
To get to the bottom of the problem though, as the first step, hold the power and home button down on the iPhone for about 10 seconds until you see the Apple Logo, then release.
Let the phone restart and when it has, try to send a text message.
Let me know the results please
