We all need some me-time, away from our mobiles. The best way to get rid of the constant headaches is by switching off your mobile and spending time with your loved ones. But, what if you get an emergency call or call from work when your mobile is switched off? How will you know if somebody called you when your mobile was off?
There is no direct way to know if somebody called you when your mobile was off. That’s because missed calls mean the calls that were sent to your phone, but you couldn’t attend or answer. These calls are registered as missed calls and you get a notification for these calls as soon as you use your mobile.
However, the setting does not work for those who have switched off their mobiles. That’s because the person calling you will get a message that says “the number you are calling is switched off”. So, you don’t receive the call in the first place, which means there is no way you can get a notification.
How to Check Missed Call When Phone is Switched Off
The good news is it is possible to know who called you when your mobile was off if you enable the notifications for the same. Here’s how.
1. Activate Missed Call Notification
If you enable missed call notifications, you will receive them even when your phone is off. Here’s how you can change your calling notification:
- Open the “settings” tab.
- Select “notifications”.
- Scroll a little to find “phone app”.
- Choose “missed calls”.
- Toggle on the notifications.
Plus, each network provider offers a unique code that you can use to activate the settings that show you who called your number when your mobile was off. To enable these settings, dial *321*800#.
If you have the Truecaller app on your mobile, you will receive a notification if somebody calls you, i.e. if your mobile data was on. But, for that to work, your mobile must be on. Even if they dialed your number mistakenly and cut the call before it rang, you will still get the Truecaller notification. But, this does not work if your mobile was switched off. So, the only way to get a list of the missed calls when your mobile was switched off is by activating the service. Use the particular code to activate that notification service on your mobile.
