If someone blocks me, will they still receive my texts? No, when someone blocks you from getting messages, your messages will not be delivered to that person. But in some cases, there is an option to check the messages from blocked numbers in the spam messages.
We cover almost everything you need to know about blocking and texting someone who has blocked you in this article. But in my experience, if someone blocked you for no reason, then do not stress because you have your own value and your happiness should not be dependent on someone else's.
How can you text someone who has blocked your number?
Using another number is the best thing to do to send a message to someone who has blocked your number. So, when you are using a different number to text, those messages will surely be delivered to the recipient.
The other thing you can do is use social media like WhatsApp, Messenger, Viber, etc. You can contact them through social media if only they use the same apps as yours.
What happens if I text someone who has blocked me?
If a contact has blacklisted your phone number, he will not get your SMS, even if everything appears to be working OK on your end. They won't get notifications of your text messages as they arrive on Android, and they won't see them as they arrive. If your iPhone line has been blocked, they will not receive your texts.
When a contact stops you from sending them text messages on Android, your messages will go straight to your Spam and Blocked section, just like they would in an email account.
How do I retrieve blocked messages?
In general, if the prohibited messages were not deleted from the block list, Android phone users can recover them. The steps are as follows:
- Select Call & Text Blocking from the drop-down menu.
- Select History.
- Select Text Blocked History from the drop-down menu.
- Choose the message you want to restore from the list of blocked messages.
- To return to your inbox, tap the Restore to Inbox button.
Can You Tell If Your Texts Have Been Blocked?
You will never receive a warning that you have been blocked if you use normal SMS on your phone. There aren't any apps (that we're aware of) that send a loud flashing notice that states "You've been blocked," as is customary in the digital age. Of course, there are a few telltale signals that the recipient has blocked your phone number.
There are a few things you can attempt to see if you've been blocked or not if someone isn't responding to your texts.
Remember that banning a cell phone number is essentially the same as having your phone number disconnected or altered. It's possible that your buddy or contact simply changed their phone number and forgot to inform you.
It's also impossible to restrict SMS without also blocking phone calls. If you can phone someone but your messages are marked as 'Undelivered,' there's a problem (the good news is that your number hasn't been blocked).
How can you tell if your phone number has been blocked?
- How long will it take to go to voicemail?
If you call someone whose number has been blocked, you will not receive any sort of notification that you have done so. There will be an abnormality in the ringtone/voicemail pattern, however.
After three to a dozen rings from an unblocked number, you'll get a voicemail box prompt. To avoid going to voicemail if the person's phone is out of order, you'll go straight to their voicemail instead.
- Make a phone call from a different device.
A simple solution may be the most effective. Call the person's number from a different phone if you believe you've been blocked.
It doesn't really matter if you use your work phone or borrow a friend's phone. To summarize, if you are unable to contact someone on your phone but are able to do so on another phone, you have most likely been blocked.
- Send a text message to see if it works.
Although it's more reliable on iOS than Android, you can get some insight into whether or not someone has blocked you via text messages.
When you send a text message on iOS, you'll typically get one of two notifications: "Delivered," or "Read." The latter indicates that the recipient has yet to read your text message. The second one should be self-explanatory.
What happens if a phone call is blocked?
We blocked a number and observed the experience on both phones to see what occurs when a call is banned.
When calling from the blocked number, the caller hears one or no rings, but the other phone remains silent.
The caller is subsequently alerted that the recipient is unavailable and is routed to voicemail (if the person you're phoning has set up voicemail).
The number of rings varies for no apparent reason, but if you hear two or more, you're quite sure you haven't been blocked.
Note that if someone has blocked you, you can leave a message, but the blocker will never get it. If they're on a carrier that enables visual voicemail, like O2 or EE, it will appear at the bottom of their voicemail list in the Blocked Messenger area, although most people won't go there.
Can you see if a blocked number has tried to contact you?
If you don't have voicemail, you'll still be able to notice if a blocked number is contacting you because it will appear in your recent calls because it occurred to me. That's because if someone you've blocked calls you, your phone will still ring once.
On some devices, you can check the calls that you’ve received from the blacklisted numbers. My advice is to check those lists at least once a day because you may have missed calls or messages from numbers that you’ve added to the blacklist accidentally.
What happens if someone on iMessage blocks you?
Your call will not be received if someone has blocked you on their iPhone. The phone will ring once and then go straight to voicemail after you dial their number.
Granted, this could also indicate that they are occupied and unable to communicate. If this happens every time you phone, it's possible you've been blocked.

Why has my ex-boyfriend unblocked me on WhatsApp?
It appears that the blocker does not always unblock and wishes for the person to contact them; rather, it appears that the blocker has moved on, is no longer angry, and has no feelings for the person they've blocked.
Is it harmful to block an ex?
Agree? Nothing is more aggravating than being blocked by an ex. Those who have been on the receiving end of abuse understand the agony. Even if you've moved on from your ex, coming to terms with the fact that he's blocked you takes time.
