How To Tell If Someone Blocked Your Number On iPhone

Don’t you get irritated or angry when someone doesn’t answer your calls or replies to your text messages? There can be a few reasons for these either they are out of network coverage area or they might be ignoring you or even worse they could have blocked you. Let’s just say that your number has been blocked but how can you know for sure. On WhatsApp we can get to know easily whether we are blocked or not but what about getting blocked on calls or text messages on iPhone.

But before you assume all the circumstance make sure that you have looked through all the other aspects of them not replying. Like they might have switched off the phone, the phone is out of battery, no cellular network coverage, the phone might be in airplane mode / DND mode, some issue with their SIM card, they have misplaced their phone etc. If you have gone through this and still got nothing than we can say that they have blocked your phone number. There are a few ways through which you can discover whether you have been blocked or not.

6 Methods To Tell If Someone Blocked Your Number On iPhone

  1. If you are blocked by someone you might not see the iMessage option and the blue text bubbles when you try to send them text messages. Instead of blue it may appear green bubble SMS text, or you see “Not Delivered” message.
  2. If an iMessage isn’t delivered, we can assume that their iPhone isn’t connected to the internet. In this scenario, you may right-click a sent iMessage and select Send as Text Message. Check to see whether you received a response to your SMS. If not, then that person has most likely blocked you or may be ignoring you.
  3. When you’re blocked, you may hear only one ring before being alerted that the number is busy. In this instance, you may receive responses such as out of coverage region, unavailable, inaccessible, and so on.
  4. When you call someone who has blocked you, you get voicemail. You can leave a voicemail, which will be mentioned in the “Blocked” area at the bottom of their Voicemail screen. If they wish, they can listen to it. However, most individuals disregard voicemails on the “Blocked” category.
  5. When you make a call on FaceTime, whether you’re blocked or not, it has the same unresponsive ringtone and no status like “calling,” “ringing,” etc., on the screen. If you contact someone on FaceTime and the message “FaceTime unavailable” appears constantly, it suggests the individual is ignoring your calls or their FaceTime is not activated, Wi-Fi is not connected currently or they might have you blocked on their iPhone. As a result, you are unable to FaceTime, iMessage, SMS, or call that individual.
  6. Disabling your caller ID and then calling that person is one of the methods to see whether someone has blocked your number or not. So, dial *67 before calling that person’s phone number. It will conceal your phone number and display “Private,” “Anonymous,” or “Restricted” to that individual. You may also conceal your caller ID from the iOS settings, by disabling you called id.

You need to keep in mind that these methods given above only shows you if someone has blocked you or not. These methods are not for making them unblock you. If you don’t want to follow these methods or still have doubts whether it is accurate or not than you may directly ask that person who has blocked you about it.
