The GSM carriers all have different message center phone numbers.
TracFone's system should have indicated which carrier you have, provided you with the correct number and where to store it in the phone. If they gave you the number, check to see if there is a setting off the Messages menu, in a profile, where this phone number can be stored.
If I recall correctly, CDMA networks handle this automatically and that type of phone does not have a message center number stored.
