If DRX is disabled does UE receive paging message?
Discontinuous Reception (DRX)
- On DRX disabled option, the UE keeps monitoring the PDCCHs on each subframe.
On DRX enabled option, the UE monitors the PDCCH on a predefined time durations then goes to sleep to save UE power consumption.
Maybe you are mixing DRX an C-DRX. The second, is the DRX in the Connected mode and works as @cheikh789 mentioned, and can be disabled. The first cannot be disabled and will rule the paging procedure.
