Lumia 900 doesn't send or receive texts

So I recently got a Lumia 900 from AT&T, cause with my upgrade it was free, and who doesn't like free things? 

 

Anyways, I can make calls and receive calls, and have tested this out numerous times. However when I go to send or receive texts, it shows them as sent, but the other person does not get a text, and vice versa. I'm 100% sure that everyone is texting the correct number, and have tried turning the phone on and off. Just wondering if anyone else has had this problem, or if there is anyway to fix it?

 

-Thanks

I had people texting my old number first, but also had someone try texting the SMS one, and nothing. I'm just confused as to why the number for texting would be different, and why people cannot get my texts.
