Option to send SMS doesn't appear

Starting today for some reason, I can only compose text messages but can't send them because the option just no longer is there. I can spell check but can't compose.

 

I can't delete the message threads either. That option appears but doesn't function.

 

Any ideas? Very frustrating! Up until the Blackberry Curve was perfect.

Clarification - I can spell check and compose; just when I hit the middle button to send, nothing happens. No menu appears.

Try this first -- reboot the device: With the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot.

Re: Option to send SMS doesn't appear

That did the trick. I did need to do it three times, but it worked eventually. I also removed my email from the device, and I will put it back on later. I'd rather have the text messaging than the email so if it's the email that's messing it up, I can live without it. Thanks!
