https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMS

How many days or weeks or months the SMS can be received even after the Cellular phone is powered off?

Will this service vary from Cellular Service operators?

Example :

Person A sends SMS message to Person B. Person A gets the message Send.
Person B has the Cellular phone switched off.

The SMS message received from Person A by Person B when he/she will power on the cellular phone will be retrieved even after how many days?

Is it 1 day or 1 week or 1 month?

Can this be increased?

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

This depends on your cell service provider.

Most cell service providers will store incoming text messages when your phone has been turned off and periodically attempt to resend the texts until you can receive them. This period called "attempted redelivery" varies depending on your wireless service.

Hence, it's impossible to tell unless you ask them yourself...

Note: AT&T will try to send the text for three days, Verizon for five days, Sprint for a full week.
