I have had a problem this semester with students talking in the back of my small classroom. This is fairly uncommon, so I wasn't quite ready for it. I did the same thing you do, by rearranging the tables so everyone can see everyone else, and it stopped immediately. They were suddenly accountable to their peers (and me) and had nowhere to hide. The day I first did this was the most productive day of that class. As far as texting is concerned, I don't really care about that, so long as they are not making noise or distracting others. I figure they will get out of the class what they put in. I did notice, though, that texting halted as well, although I said nothing about it.
