It looks like you have to have voice service to use texting on the account.  I don't have voice service and when I select TEXT it takes me to voice service info.  I can't replicate your issue.

Using PC just press New Message. That brings up the Contact List so you can chose the recipient or type in a phone number. Couldn't be easier.
