If an SMS message is sent to my Telecom CDMA phone, and the phone is switched off or out of range, how long will the network hold onto the mesage before it is discarded?

I.e. how long can my phone be off or out of coverage before I start potentially missing text messages?

The offical line in Nov 2007 is "Yes. The message will be stored for up to 5 days and will be sent when the phone comes back into digital

coverage."

For person to person SMS the message retry schedule is hourly, after the first hour where it retries every 1-5 minutes, for 5 days before the message is discarded. For premium SMS the retry schedule is dependant on the message originator and message type. This is because the 3rd party appliction developers are able to select their preferred SMS retry schedule based on the content type.
