I hate to hear you are having trouble with your icons and SMS.  Sometimes depending on the themes, your icons can be different as well.  When you seperate your email/SMS - you should have 2 icons.  One for your "email messages" and then one that is for your SMS and MMS. 


When I click on my SMS icon, if i have a message there, then I can reply and send SMS back or I can click menu key and send new SMS -
