Diagnose my iPhone

Text messaging consistently does not work on my phone (iPhone 4s, AT&T). 2 failure modes:
1) The blue "Sending" bar does not go all the way to complete in iMessage
2) I'll send a text successfully, and the other person will text me back right away, but I won't receive their reply. When I do get their reply, however, it'll say the correct timestamp (from when they sent it, which is often hours earlier.)
This always happens with some people and never with others. It happens to both iMessage and regular texts. I'm wondering whether to take it to the Apple store, the AT&T store, to do a factory reset, or to fiddle with some other settings. Has anyone else encountered this and been able to fix it?
