There is no direct way to know missed calls when phone is switched 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 alert 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.

In this guide, you’ll learn how to know missed calls when phone is switched off and get missed call alert.

Sound’s good? Let’s get started.

How to Know 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.

1. Activate Missed Call Alert Notification

If you enable missed call alert notifications, you will receive them even when your phone is off. Here’s how you can change your calling notification:

  • Open the Settings app on your Android phone.
  • Select notifications and scroll a little to find the Phone or Call app.
  • Choose missed calls from the list of options.
  • Toggle on the notifications and you will get missed call alert when phone is off.

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#.

2. Truecaller – Missed Call Alert When Phone is Off

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.
