recently bought an iphone 3GS, it's unlocked to any network.

but - ever since i activated it, i keep getting an error message saying

"sorry your text messaging service is currently unavailable due to insufficient funds"

every couple of minutes! any idea how to stop this error message popping up?
its annoying the hell out of me.

What network did you activate it on?
thanks for replying, activated it on virgin UK
and now it's sending those messages in bursts of 3... i have to press okay three times before the message goes away
this is getting ridiculous!

You might be best calling them ... is it prepaid? Do you have funds in your account/is your bill paid?
