Can someone tell if I block their number?

How do I know someone blocked me on iPhone?

Look underneath the last text you sent before you suspect you were blocked. If the previous iMessage says “Delivered” under the message bubble but the most recent one doesn’t, it can mean that you’ve been blocked. If you see an iMessage Not Delivered error instead, that can be another indication as well.

Can you see if a blocked number has tried to contact you?

Based on my knowledge (because it already had happened to me), if you don’t have voicemail, you will still be able to see if a blocked number is contacting you because it will still appear in your recent calls. That’s because whenever a blocked person calls you, your phone will still ring but only once.

What does a caller hear when their number is blocked?

When calling from the blocked number, the caller hears either one ring, or no rings at all, but the other phone remains silent. The caller is then informed that the recipient isn’t available, and is diverted to voicemail (if that service is set up by the person you’re calling).

How do I know if Im blocked on iPhone?

If you get a notification like “Message Not Delivered” or you get no notification at all, that’s a sign of a potential block. Next, you could try calling the person. If the call goes right to voicemail or rings once (or a half ring) then goes to voicemail, that’s further evidence you may have been blocked.
