Can someone tell me if what I describe below is “normal” behavior?
While traveling, I was in an area with no cell service. During the trip I connected to WiFi several times. While on WiFi was able to make calls via WiFi and also send/receive text messages.
On the way home, as soon as I entered Sprint coverage, I got several notifications about new text messages. These had been sent sometime when I had no service, but before I had my WiFi connections. (I’m talking here about the notifications. I don’t know if the texts themselves were available on WiFi because I didn’t know to check for them!)
My speculation is that when these were sent, Sprint could not find my phone and somehow held on to the messages so that the Republic WiFi connection had no knowledge of them.
Can anyone confirm if this is expected behavior?
