Do text messages stay in que/storage when my phone will be off or out of the service area? Will those messages be downloaded to the phone when the phone is turned back on?

If a message is sent to you while your device is off or outside of the Verizon Wireless coverage area, your message will be stored for later delivery.

Your device must be turned back on and have coverage for the message to be delivered to you. The network will attempt to deliver the message for 5 days (120 hours) from the date of receipt.

Messages not delivered within 5 days will be deleted.
