Why Won't it Work?

I just got a new cell phone on Tuesday and I tried to set up text messaging via LiveJournal but it wouldn't work. I have some questions:


  • Do I need to put the 1 before my area code when I put my number in? Do spaces matter?
  • My phone says "Verizon" how do I know if it's Verizon formerly Airtouch?
  • Any other troubleshooting tips you can give me that might give some clue as to how I can make it work?


And, before you ask, yes, I can send and receive texties to other cell phone members. It's not just that my service isn't set up, I send messages all day to my friends with phones, so that's not it.
