Texting (SMS) as well as multimedia messaging (MMS) are separate from data (which is access to the internet.

Your problem is you're using an iPhone which defaults to using the apple iMessage service or whatever its called, which always uses the Internet for message sending. You will need to contact apple support to figure out how to make it send real SMS messages.
