I lost my phone 2 weeks ago, I have just sorted a new sim card out and transferred my lost number over, however I'm still waiting on new handset - so my sim hasn't been turned on for 2 weeks now..
Will I still receive any text messages for the period it was switched off??
Glad to hear you are getting your lost phone replaced. Regrettably, if your SIM is not in a handset or not activated then it will not receive SMS messages or any other alerts while inactive.
