Receiving texts when phone is off

I actually ran a test (both phones on same account):

1. sent text message to my (windows) phone while powered off - waited 10 mins and turned phone on - even after an hour the text msg was NOT received. Text messaging while phones is on works OK.

2. sent text message to my wife's phone (android) while powered off - waited 10 mins and turned phone on - text message received!

(I don't keep my phone on at all times and I wasn't receiving message that others said they sent when I turned phone on)

Is there an account setting (on the Verizon side, presumably) that would affect this?

Thanks

I have never had to change any setting on my Android nor account with Verizon.  Perhaps a Windows Phone limitation?  But, I wouldn't think this to be the case.  I have never heard this one before.  I'd think it to be a Verizon issue.  How about your SIM card?  Can you leave powered on, remove SIM, reinsert it?  Maybe it just needs kicking into gear.
