Yes, it should unless it is after an extreme amount of time (I don't know how long) after which it will time out.

Re: SMS Sending while having no service

When your device redio is turned off and you try to send a SMS text then you'll receive a prompt saying "Radio is off, messages cannot be sent. You will only be able to Save Drafts" If you click OK to contunue then you'll be able to type in SMS text but there will no Send option under Menu button.

Re: SMS Sending while having no service

I tried that. After 30min of being in a covered area, I received new mails but the mail that could not be sent had to be sent by my manually.
