iOS6 upgrade kills text messages

I've updated mine and my wife's iPhones - mine works fine, but hers is not sending or receiving text messages.

When she goes into settings / messages, she is also missing a load of the options - only having the 'imessage' selection box, then the SMS/MMS three options. All the stuff in the middle about addresses and sending as an SMS is missing.

Any suggestions?

I wonder if it might be because we're both under the same Apple ID - but it's never been a problem before.

Never mind!

Just tried the age old 'turn it off and on again' (in this case, the iMessage setting, not the phone itself) and it's working fine now!

I've learnt the hard way never to upgrade the software on iPhones.

The You Tube app is no longer part of IOS....as with the replacement of Google maps with Apple maps. (There is a free app in the app store I believe.)
