I got a new iPhone yesterday and I'm able to send texts to people with a phone number but I can't sent texts to people with an Email? If that makes sense. Also, I can't receive texts when I'm out and about. I'll text somebody and when I'm home I'll receive the text that they sent an hour ago. How do I fix this?

If you're sending texts to people with an email that aren't going through, that may be an iMessage. It requires Internet, either data or WiFi. If you're moving outside of your house and you had WiFi on, that would explain the missed messages.

Try going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network settings to see if that fixes anything.
