IPhone 3G wont send/receive pxts.

I bought a second hand iPhone off a mate who had it all restored back to original settings before I bought it. Unfortunately it doesnt receive or send pxt messages and when looking at a photo there isnt even an option to 'send as MMs' etc. When sending a text there isnt the small camera picture that should be beside the text message part.

Im on prepaid, and my sister has thought that if I upgrade to a pack with data it will enable pxt'ing and will also allow the phone to access safari when not in a WiFi area (another thing it doesnt do, even with credit on the phone).

Any thoughts! Have googled and found nothing. Thanks.

Hmm, I see this a lot now. We have iPhones and iPads here that keep dropping their APN settings
