Default [Q] Texting DOA

I have a rooted Photon 4g that went under the wheels of a car.
After replacing the screen, it appears that the headset speaker didn't survive, plus it's just generally hammered.

I swapped my Sprint service to a brand new Photon 4g that I have been sitting on in case of an emergency.
Phone and internet functions without issue, but the texting doesn't send or receive.

Android version 2.3.4
Build 4.5.1A-1_SUN-154_5
Just rooted this one too after being told by Sprint it is useless.

How can I further diagnose the texting issue?

I can move files from the old working phone to new one but unsure what to copy.

Thank you.
