When a phone is disconnected it usually says “the number you have dialed is not in service”. Depending on the provider, the voice may be robotic or a live operator will inform you that the number you are trying to reach is no longer in service.
This may happen if the phone is disconnected due to an interruption in service, outages in the network, or if the phone number has been disconnected or terminated. If you hear this message when trying to reach someone, you should contact them via alternative methods such as email or social media to ensure they are still active and reachable.
How can I check if a phone number is still active?
One of the quickest and easiest ways to check if a phone number is still active is to give it a call. If you hear a ringing sound or an automated voice message, then the number is active. Another option is to search the phone number online.
If it appears in a search, it is likely still active. Finally, you can go to the phone company which services the phone number, and ask them to check if the number is still active.
How can you tell if someone’s phone is off when texting?
If there is no response to a message within a reasonable timeframe and several messages have already been sent, it is likely that the recipient’s phone is off. Another clue is a delayed delivery notification, which may indicate that the phone is off but that their network service provider is trying to transfer the message.
Some phones will send an automated reply to incoming messages when powered off, so checking for that reply is another way to tell that the phone is off. Lastly, if you have access to utility apps such as Find My Phone that can remotely access the person’s phone, you can see if the phone is on or off.
How do you make it look like your phone is disconnected?
If you are trying to make it look like your phone is disconnected, there are a few different approaches you can take.
The most direct approach would be to completely turn off the phone by either pressing the Power button or taking out the battery if you have a removable battery. This will make it appear as if the phone is completely “disconnected” from the network.
Another approach is to put the phone into ‘Airplane Mode’. Doing this will turn off the cellular connection and all of the phones wireless resources such as WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. The phone will still maintain some of its functions such as apps, games, and the ability to view text messages and photos.
You can also manually disable each of the phones wireless connection if you do not wish to turn on Airplane Mode. This can be done in the settings menu.
Ultimately, the best way to make it look like your phone is disconnected is to actually disconnect it.
How do you know if your phone is turned off?
If you are unsure if your phone is turned off, there are several ways to check. First, you can try pressing the power button and see if the screen turns on. If the phone does not turn on, or if you cannot press the power button, then it is likely that the phone is turned off.
Additionally, if you are still uncertain if the phone is off, then you can take the battery out of the phone, or try checking the phone’s battery level to see if it has been charged recently. Lastly, you can plug the phone into a charger and see if it will charge.
If the phone does not register to the charger at all, then it is most likely off.
What happens to a text message when phone is off?
When a phone is turned off, a text message sent to that phone will be stored by the service provider and held in the recipient’s phone’s outbox until the recipient turns their phone back on. The service provider will ensure that the message is delivered to the recipient once their phone is powered back on.
Depending on the service provider, the message may remain in the outbox for a certain period of time, such as 72 hours, before being deleted. It is important to note that if the recipient’s phone has insufficient memory to store a message, they may not receive the message immediately even if their phone is on.
What happens when someone texts you when you have no service?
When someone texts you when you have no service, the text may not go through right away. The message will be stored on the sender’s phone until the device has a stable connection to the network, at which point the message can be sent.
If the device is unable to establish a connection to the network, the text will stay in the outbox until it can make a connection. In addition, the sender will likely receive an error message indicating that their message was not delivered.
When a phone number is no longer in service?
When a phone number is no longer in service, it means that the service provider has stopped providing the service associated with that number. This could be due to a long period of inactivity, the cancellation of an account, or the phone number being released to the public.
In addition, the phone number may have been blocked or disconnected by the service provider. If you attempt to call the phone number, you may hear a message indicating that the number is no longer in service.
You may also see an error message when attempting to send text messages or emails to the phone number. If you are trying to contact someone who had the number previously, you may need to contact them through another means of communication.
Will iMessage say delivered if phone is disconnected?
No, iMessage will not say delivered if the phone is disconnected. When an iMessage is sent, it is sent through Apple’s servers that attempt to deliver the message to the recipient’s device. If the recipient’s device is offline or otherwise disconnected, the server will be unable to deliver the message, so the status of the message will remain as “sending” and never be changed to “delivered”.
Can you still text without service?
Yes, you can still text without service if you have another source of internet access, such as Wi-Fi. You can send text messages using various online messaging applications such as WhatsApp, iMessage, Viber and Facebook Messenger.
These applications allow you to send and receive messages using an internet connection, rather than relying on your mobile service provider’s network. Additionally, if you have an unlocked phone, you can insert another SIM card with an active internet connection to use these services.
Can you still receive text messages if you have no service?
No, you cannot receive text messages if you have no service. This is because when you have no service, your device does not have any connectivity. Your device needs a cellular connection to receive SMS texts.
If you do not have a cellular connection, the SMS text messages cannot be received. However, some messaging applications (e. g. WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, iMessage) can use Wi-Fi to send and receive messages, provided that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network.
Can a text still be delivered if phone is off?
No, if a phone is switched off it will not be able to receive any incoming text messages, as the device must be powered on and have a network connection in order to receive messages. In addition, most mobile devices will not receive messages when their batteries are completely depleted.
Do iPhone messages turn green when phone is off?
No, iPhone messages will not turn green when the phone is off. Text messages are sent via the cellular network, which is independent of the phone itself. For a text message to be delivered, the phone must be powered on and connected to the cellular network.
Therefore, when a phone is off, text messages are not able to be delivered, and they will not turn green.
Do green texts mean blocked?
No, green texts do not necessarily mean that the message was blocked. Depending on the messaging app that you are using, there are various ways to differentiate messages being sent and received. Different messaging apps use different colors and symbols to represent different things.
For example, in WhatsApp, green texts indicate that the message has been delivered while blue ticks indicate that it has been read. Gray texts indicate that the message is still pending delivery. In addition, there are other indicators such as clock icons which indicate that the message was sent but not yet delivered.
Therefore, green texts do not necessarily mean that the message was blocked.
Why would a text message go from blue to green?
A text message going from blue to green is usually an indication that the message is now being sent from a different source. For instance, if you send a message from your iPhone to an Android device, it may appear as blue in your message conversation, but the other person will see a green bubble.
This is because the two operating systems use different messaging protocols. Similarly, messages sent from one messaging platform such as WhatsApp or Messenger to another, may also appear differently in the conversation window.
On an iPhone, a WhatsApp message may appear in green, but on an Android device, it may appear in blue.
Is the phone off or am I blocked?
It’s difficult to say without further information, but it’s possible that either your phone is off or you are blocked.
If your phone is off, your calls, texts, and messages will not go through. You can try turning your phone on and off, as it may have powered down due to low battery, or you could check the cellular connection on your device.
There could be an issue with the network, such as being in an area with poor coverage, or the device could have a hardware issue that needs to be addressed.
If you are blocked, the person may have chosen to block your communication, either through their cell phone provider or a program they have installed on their device. You may need to contact the person to determine if they have blocked you and, if so, why they have blocked communications between you.
How do you know if someone has their phone on Do Not Disturb?
You can usually tell if someone has their phone on Do Not Disturb (DND) mode by looking at the phone’s lock screen or home screen. On many smartphones, a dimmed half-moon or “do not disturb” icon will appear on the display when the phone is set to Do Not Disturb mode.
Additionally, depending on the phone, an audible sound such as a tapping may be heard when a call or message is sent to a phone in Do Not Disturb mode. So if you hear a faint tapping sound when you try to contact someone and nothing appears on their lock screen or home screen, it’s likely that their phone is on Do Not Disturb mode.
