Can't send or receive texts msg 2120

I just got my sim card and can make and receive calls but I get an error message when I try to send texts.  "You are not allowed to send text messages.  Msg 2120".  I am using the stock Android Messages app on a phone running Android 7.0.  Please help.  Thanks.

You make phone calls and messags through the textnow app. NOT the built in messages app.

Hey Greg! Damian is correct, through our VoIP service, you will have to use TextNow exclusively for your calling and texting. Simple reason being that the native/stock apps will try to access the voice network to send out the message, but we don't have access to that network. We access the data network, which you have available through the TextNow app!
