It is quite common to block annoying person’s contact on your iPhone and stop them from calling or messaging you. But how do you know someone blocked your number on iPhone? You may not be able to guess it on the spot, however there are multiple indications that tell you that your number is blocked on the other person’s iPhone.
In order to learn those hidden signs, keep reading till the end!
Call the Person from Your Blocked iPhone Number
First thing first. If you doubt someone has blocked your number on iPhone, make a call to that person from your current number. If the other person has set up a voicemail, after one precise ring, you will be diverted to the voicemail. Although it happens when the other person cuts your call or if they are out of cellular service’s range, this doesn’t happen each and every time. You can make calls multiple times, and if after one ring you are diverted to the voicemail, you can assume that someone has blocked your number.
In case, the person has not set up the voice mail, the continuous busy tone every time you call is the sign that your number is blocked.
Send an iMessage
If you are still not sure how to know if someone blocked your number on iPhone, another effective way is to send an iMessage. When you send an iMessage to the contact number who has blocked you, you will not receive the ‘Delivered’ or ‘Read’ confirmation of the message you have sent.
Hide the Caller ID, and Make a Call
Well, this is a not-so-disciplined method to check if someone has blocked your number on iPhone, but it doesn’t harm anyone, right? Especially, when you really want to be sure about your number’s status on the other person’s iPhone. One way, in many countries, is to use the code to disable your caller ID and can make a call to the person who has blocked your number.
The other way is to hide your caller ID from your iOS device by following below steps:
- Go to ‘Settings’
- Go to ‘Phone’
- Tap ‘Show My Caller ID’
- Now, turn off the button
Still In Doubt? Call from Another Number
If you are still not sure how to know if someone blocked your number on iPhone, call that person from a different number. And then you can ask them if they have blocked your number. In some cases, your number might have been deleted accidentally and the person has silenced the unknown callers. So, in this scenario, you can ask them to save your number again.
In order to turn off the settings that bar unknown callers, ask them to follow these steps:
- Go to the ‘Settings’ app
- Go to ‘Phone’
- Turn off the Silence Unknown Callers button.
Note: Be careful! Frequent calls from a blocked person can be considered as harassment.
