Can you retrieve Telstra SMS messages sent while your SIM was out of your phone . Or is there another way to see them ?

Citing from here (by the way search is your friend) https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Network-Roaming/Short-sms-reattempt-period/m-p/775120:

"To answer your question about re-delivery, the Network will hold an SMS for delivery for up to 7 days before the SMSC discards the message.

It should also be noted that messages are delivered sequentially, so if the message at the head of the queue is delayed all messages queued up behind this message will also be delayed."

Is this by any chance related to this thread https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Billing-Payments/Overseas-charges/td-p/778349 ?

Re: Retrieving SMS messages

Adding on to ForensicsGuru, there is no remote access system for the Telstra Mobile SMS service. The text messages can only be retrieved by the mobile with the sim card inserted into it. This means you can put the sim into another mobile if your main one is faulty and be able to retrieve any queued text messages.
The internet is a wonderful place.

I am a Telstra Employee however i am posting in my own time. My opinions are my own and not that of Telstras. I am a customer of Telstra.
