do I need a 3G connection to send a text? I thought texts can be sent with just a regular voice connection. quite often my data connection is off because I have wifi, and I can still send texts.
what could be causing this? any ideas, please let me know.

No 3g is not needed to send texts. Have you rooted, or installed a custom rom recently?
