    sms and text message are the same. They are text only short messages. If you add a picture it is an MMS and is different.

    Why can't you reply to them?

    you may not have text/SMS messaging provisioned in your cell account. so you can only receive them and not send any. you might need to make a call to find out what exactly you have.

    Most likely not provisioned! Can you reply to them using IM or some sort?

    You can go to the carrier's website usually and they have a way to send text messages but not receive. Most instant messaging programs allow users to receive IM's on their cell phone and the IM user and the cell phone user can converse back and forth.
