As the topic title says, I sent text messages from my LG-P500h android phone while my phone is currently deactivated.

I see the "sent at (12:00pm or w.e)" as if it were a normal text, and I don't know if the reciever got the text or not. I figure that if a phone is deactivated it would logically mean you can't sent a text, right?

In any case, if my phone is reactivated in a few months time (which it very well may be), will they recieve the text the very moment my phone is reactivated? And if so, how can I prevent the messages from being sent?

I've heard you can do a factory data reset to stop the messages from being sent, or you can just manually delete the texts but will that stop them from being sent upon reactivation?  I've also heard that the messages are stored in a server for a short while before they are deleted, will that also prevent them from being sent?

Answer as soon as possible!

Thanks

Will the deletion be required for them to not be sent upon reactivation?  Or will they just not be sent either way?

Hi there, if your phone isn't activated, it can't send text messages. You can go in the text messaging inbox and delete it from there. It will not be automatically sent upon re-activating the device.

Okay, sounds good.  But are you 100% sure?  I need to know for sure

The easier ways is most likely to delete the text from the text messaging inbox. Normally it shouldn't send the text upon re-activating but just to make sure it doesn't have it removed.
