Hi there,

I use a Samsung Galaxy S4 with Koodo and have noticed that I am not receiving texts that were sent to my phone when it was dead. I was told by someone that they sent me a few texts, however my phone was dead at the time and after charging for a while, and on (connected to network), I never receive the texts. I just wouldn't want to miss a text if it was important. 

Thanks for your time!

How long was your phone dead for? I do believe Koodo holds them in waiting for 48hrs after which time, they are deemed undeliverable

I'm pretty sure it's more like a week, actually.
