Will messages be blocked when turning off iMessage and SMS Message on 4S?

By turning OFF iMessage and SMS Message, will it send an alert to the sender that I am unavailable to receive text messages? Or will all text messages be backed up and come all at once as soon as I turn it back on?

I was just wondering if by turning these two off in settings, if this process would be similar when sending an email to a misspelled/incorrect email address and you receive a MailerDaemon to alert you that your email was not sent properly.

Thanks.

Depending on your carrier, you can send yourself a message from your computer.

Where do you see the option to turn of sms messages?
I only see imessage, mms, group and character count.
There's no way to disable sms text messages on the iphone.

If you look in SETTINGS > MESSAGES, you will see the following:

iMessage ON/OFF

SMS/MMS

MMS MESSAGING ON/OFF
CHARACTER COUNT ON/OFF

I assume MMS took care for both SMS & MMS since it was titled that way. Maybe, as you stated, it took care of only MMS and not SMS.

Anyway, someone texted me and I received it, so it answered my question - You can't block texts momentarily. And it will not send an "UNAVAILABLE" msg. to sender by turning these OFF.

SMS and MMS are stored at the provider. If you want them blocked you have to request it from your provider. Even when blocked, I don't believe there is a rejection notice.

That only turns off mms messaging.
Not regural sms texts.
