Getting iMessages with cellular data turned off

If I have cellular data turned off on my iPhone, will I still receive any missed iMessages later when I connect to Wi-Fi?

 

Thanks.

Yes.  They go through Apple servers, not your carrier.

Set up Wifi calling and you will even receive regular text messages with Wifi and cellular data off!

Hi Esresr, it is important to have access to all your iMessages that you missed until you connect to Wi-Fi or our network. Let me help you with getting your iMessages and your question. Yes, you should be able to get your missed iMessages when you have a data connection by it on our network or when on Wi-Fi. Was your device off as the reason why you missed your iMessages? Are you having issues with your phone sending and receiving text messages when you are not on Wi-Fi?
