Can't connect to internet without sending picture message first?

I have a Samsung SPH-D600 Conquerer Android on Verizon that I'm having internet connection issues. I can't connect to the internet until I send an picture message to another phone, this method establishes a 3G connection where then I am able to browse the web. If I don't send that SMS, I can't connect to the internet at all. I can setup a hotspot and other devices can connect to that hotspot. I'm just trying to figure out how to connect to the internet without having to send a picture message every time.
