Texts not working while on phone

For about a year now I have been having an issue with my iphone 4 sending duplicate texts.  If I am on the phone, I can send my daughter a text that she never receives while another friend will receive an old text from me again.  I have tried with iMessage off,on- you name it. I have reset to factory settings. I have talked to highest tech support and been removed and re-added  to network. I have had a trouble ticket to no avail.  I have had 3 iPhone devices in the year blaming the equipment- even I can't be that unlucky that all 3 were bad. I went so far tonight as to have my phone number changed in hopes that it was tied somehow to number. However, I sat in my living room between my daughters, called one on phone, text other one, and she did not receive text. I am at my w it's end. I have surgery next week before starting chemo.  It's IMPERATIVE that my phone works. I pay quite a bit of money each month and don't need this aggravation. Any suggestions from anyone short of throwing phone off bridge???  If not resolved, I will regretfully leave Verizon after many years.
