So when I have no bars, but have wifi I can't send texts.

Just upgraded to iOS6. The iOS5 did this sometimes, but rarely.

Everything in my Messaging settings is correct.

Can't find an answer online.

No bars indicates no signal or weak signal strength.
Move to location where you do have bars.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

So when I don't have service, but I'm fully connected on wifi - I can't send texts?

Texts are sent over the cellular service, not WiFi. If you don't have a cell signal, you can't send or receive text. In that case, you may want to resort to email or a web based messaging client.
