How long will it take for my service to turn back on once I've payed the bill at the store?

I haven't paid my phone bill in probably 2-3 months, so my service got shut off. I plan on paying the bill tomorrow at the store, but I'm wondering how long it will take for my service to turn back on. Also, I was wondering if I'll recieve all the text messages I've been sent throughout the time my service has been shut off, once it gets turned on of course.
Thanks in advance.

Youll need to call customer service and talk to them since you havent paid long enough to have you service shut off

And no, can't remember the exact timeline but texts will only try to send for a few days before they disappear so you may get lucky enough to get any sent in the past couple days but apart from that you wont get anything else.

Keep in mind that you will also have to pay a $35 reconnection fee to have service restored.
