It's so frustrating using your phone (with Sun Cellular sim) which cannot send or receive text message. How much more if you're in an emergency situation. Here are the top things to do in order to fix that problem:
Fix Sun Cellular Cannot Send Receive Text Message Problem

Restart your phone

Your phone might hang-up or freezes because of too many applications being used or too many system services are running. Try to restart your phone. Turn it off and turn it on again.

Check your phone signal

Signal is low in highly rural areas. If you're in the mountain, don't expect a good quality signal. If you're inside a closed room, signal is low. Go outside the room to get better signal. So check your phone signal before complaining that your not able to send or receive text message.

Check your inbox 

If your inbox is full (full of messages), it's surely cannot receive a text message. Delete some old messages to free up some space for new messages.

Check call barring service

Find the call barring service on your phone's settings and deactivate it. It should not be active.

Turned off airplane or flight mode

Turn off the Airplace or Flight mode setting of your phone.

Remove Sun Cellular sim and insert to a different phone

Your phone might have a problem with its signal. Remove the Sun Cellular sim from that phone. Try to use another phone and insert the Sun Cellular sim.

Replace Sun Cellular sim

Your Sun Cellular sim might be damaged or broken, replace it by buying a new one. This is the last option.
