Questions about usage alerts and texting.

Just a couple questions.


1. I've had texting turned off for a couple weeks on one device. If I turn it back on will I receive a flood of text messages from two weeks ago that I didn't get, all at once?

2. If I set a usage alert to "Suspend until the next billing cycle" will I be able to manually turn it back on before the next billing cycle?

  • 1. No. Text messages only live on the network for something like 48 hours at most, minus some weird glitch where they show up 10 months later. In general, though, you won't get messages older than a day or two. Our SMS blocks still register the phone on the network, just not able to receive SMS. Typically when you receive a flood of messages it's because the phone has been powered off and not on the network. 

    2. Yes. The cap is just a "shut off", not a "shut off and stay off" kind of switch. Think of it like a circuit breaker that you can turn back on, even though it's tripped. Some customers set multiple for just that reason. They know they're going to turn it back on, and they'd like another circuit breaker at a higher point.
