    Is your wifi or cellular signal strong? You might try Reset Network Settings.
    Settings>General>Reset>Tap Reset Network Settings. You may need to enter your wifi passcode back in afterwards.

    Also try signing out of iMessage. Restart your phone then sign back in.

    I had this issue the other day and what I think fixed it was logging out of iCloud completely, restarting, and logging back in. Kind of a pain in the whatsit, but at least things started working again.

    You stated it did not work some whether iMessage or not. That told me it messed up some on SMS as well. So turning iMessage off and back on or signing out makes no sense. If it were just an iMessage problem it would.

    iCloud has nothing to do with messages. Stay signed in to iCloud. It sounds like you have a poor signal issue. Maybe. Either WiFi or cellular. Does everything else work ok? Can you access the Internet? Is it a new phone? Is it set up properly? What Phone is it? iPhone 6?

    iCloud has nothing to do with messages.
    That may be, but for some reason, only after signing completely out of iCloud (and out of iMessage & Facetime), and then starting from the beginning was I able to get it to start working again. Hard resets/reboots, network resets, etc., did nothing. Who knows, it may have just been a timing thing where iCloud started working at some point without anything I did affecting it.

    Starting from square 1 does help many issues. And that does involve signing out of everything. Usually when there's an issue with messages, signing out of iMessage, rebooting, then signing back in does the trick. Glad it's fixed.

    I'm at a loss. I would take it to an Apple Store Genius Bar and let them check it out. If not Apple, a Carrier Store or a reputable repair shop. Your AppleCare should cover it. Get another phone.

    I've had to have the SIM card replaced before because it caused odd SMS (and some data) issues. As Led suggested, probably best to take into the Apple store (or carrier/authorized repair shop) for diagnosis.
