My phone was recently updated to 8.1.  After the update, when text messages are sent when my phone is turned off, they no longer appear when I turn the phone on.  Is there something in Settings that needs to be changed?

MetsFanGirl,

Help is here! The messages that don"t appear are they regular text messages or Imessages? Were these text messages sent out after the Software update or before?

MetsFanGirl,

Thanks for verifying. Are you having issues receiving both iMessages and standard text messages when they are sent when the phone is turned off? Try this and test... http://vz.to/1qjiOs7

Why would you direct a WP user to a page about an iOS device? They aren't even using the same software...

That's VZW Supprot for you...  Utterly clueless and useless.

Have you done a soft reset?

Press and hold the power button and volume down button for about 10 seconds will do the trick; the phone should vibrate and reboot your phone.

I tried this and it didn't work.  And obviously being directed to a site with iPhone information was no help either.  Windows phone, Verizon, WINDOWS phone!

Go to Settings and select notifications+actions and make sure Messaging is there.  Tap on Messaging and make sure it's On and that Show notification banners is checked.

Is quite time active? You'll see a moon icon at the top.  If so turn it off.

Last recourse is doing a hard reset.

My Messaging notification was on and it wasn't on quiet time.  What's the hard reset?
