For "text" issue with data enabled only, you are not really using traditional text/sms. Instead, you are using iMessage or RCS.  


If you are on iOS, disable iMessage and then you can send as text:

Turn off iMessage
On your iPhone, go to Settings.
Tap Messages.
Set iMessage to Off.


If you are On Android, disable Chat (RCS):  

Open Messages
Tap More options> Settings > Chat features
Turn Enable chat features off
