Bold 9780 SMS Problem

I recently was gifted a BB Bold 9780. It was an unlocked phone and hence it accepted the normal Sim card I was using on a normal phone.

Now, I'm not able to text .I don't have a Blackberry dedicated sim. I have wifi at home so don't really want a BB Internet Service, besides I'm able to use normal data plans to browse on the phone. I'm able to call and receive calls and texts.
I want to use the normal SMS w/o having to subscribe to a BB dedicated plan.What should I do?
While trying to text I get an error"Network out of order". but can send the SMS using the sim on other phones.Please help

Thanks Smiley Happy

Re: Bold 9780 SMS Problem

Without the blackberry dataplan, it won't work on that phone.  There is no other way around it.  Give your carrier call to confirm this, but i think that is what the issue is.
