Not while your phone is off, no. 

You can get an app that works while your phone is on though. Auto Respond by Fifteen 15 Studios, or Auto SMS by Thein Min Naing. Have used paid versions of both, and Auto Respond wins by a whisker.


This might be better for your requirements: Last time I went overseas I used Relay Me, SMS via Email by Codolutions which forwarded the text messages to me via email, and I could either ignore it or reply to the email and it would send it as a text message to the originator.

I just turned off all audio on the phone I left at home so it wasn't screaming it's head off. Also set calls to go straight to voicemail so the phone didn't ring.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I use SMS Forwarding by Tony Shen on a cheap android i have sitting connected to the home wifi while i am away. Once you work out how to set it up (i struggle with chinglish) it is awesome. It will email you your text message and notify missed caller details too.
