just got an 8820, cannot sms, how can I fix this?

I just recently bought a 8820 off of ebay and I turned it on and I was recieving sms' but when I press the menu button it does not give me the option to sms and I have tried everything to get it back on there. I wiped the phone and reinstalled all of the software back onto the phone. How did this happen and most importantly how do I fix it. This is becoming really frustrating, Thank you very much for your time.

Do you have any icon called SMS and MMS?

 

You can go to Messages icon-> click Menu then there should be Compose SMS Text.

Can you use this device for voice calls?

 

Is there any menu in Options -> SMS Text?

I have an 8830, and may be way off base here, but I never access a SMS icon in order to Text. I go to Address book, click on the person I want to text, click the options button and select SMS Text Joe Blow::-) Good Luck - and Happy Easter.
