Can't send SMS - automatically switches to MMS

I have a Blackberry 9320.


I have a problem sending SMS - every time I open it to compose a message, or receive an SMS, it automatically displays "Switching to MMS mode". I don't want to send MMS, especially since I'm usually on roaming and my service provider doesn't allow it. I have changed the settings to "Always SMS", and it still has this problem.


Any advice on how I can fix this problem?
