The call blocking feature of Android smartphones is useful to prevent all such spammer or telemarketing calls that disturb most of the time. However, some people also use this feature to block friends and other contacts for any reason. There may also be possible that someone even uses this feature to block your number on Android to avoid your phone call or maybe accidentally added to the block list.

What happens if someone blocks your phone number, and how do you know someone has blocked your number on an Android phone? In this article, you will know all such answers and how to contact even someone who blocked your number.

How Do You Know If Someone Blocked Your Number on Android?

If you are trying to reach your friend or contacts via phone call or text messages, but you can't, there might be possible that they have blocked your phone number. But you can't surely say that he has blocked your number without asking that person.

However, there can be many other reasons why your phone call may not be reaching them. There might be no network on the recipient's phone, or who else is he talking to the phone at that time. But if your text messages are not reaching them and your phone call goes directly to voicemail, it may be possible they blocked your number.

The only trusted way to know and make sure that you have blocked on someone's phone is by asking them directly about it. But how it could be possible as your call and text messages can't deliver there. You can contact any such person who is known to that person, and he will inform you by calling on his phone about this matter. But doing so is not accessible to everyone.

Below we are mentioned one of the easiest ways for Android users to know if someone blocked their number on Android.

How to know if someone blocked you on Android Phone or Tablet

Before you start, you should ensure that your phone calls and text messages aren't delivered to that person. If this happens continuously, there might be possible that your number is blocked.

Without asking that person whether you are blocked or not, you can try the below-given steps for your satisfaction. You can delete the person's number from your contacts and see again whether the number reappears as a suggested contact or not. If the number appears, which means you are not blocked.

  1. Launch the dialer app and go to the Contacts tab on your Android phone.
  2. Tap on the contact person you doubt that he has blocked you.

  5. Reopen the Contacts app.
  6. Click on the search bar on the screen and type in the person's name you deleted.

If the deleted person's name appears as suggested contact, that means you are not blocked in their phone. If the person's name (or number) you deleted doesn't appear as suggested contact, it may be possible that you are blocked on their phone.

Once you are sure that you are not blocked on his phone, don't forget to add his contact information to your phone.

What can you do if someone blocks your phone number?

If someone has blocked your number on an Android or iPhone, you can't do anything to remove it directly from your phone. But still, for your satisfaction, you can check whether the recipient isn't call-diverted or switched off or blocked you. You may use the below tricks:

  • You may use another phone's number to call that person to see whether it rings only one and diverted to voice mail or rings multiple times.
  • Try to send text messages or WhatsApp messages.
  • If both of you are on the same social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and others, try to contact them there.
  • If you know their email ID, you may send an email and notify him or ask the reason for blocking your number.

If your number gets blocked on someone's number, there is no such notification you will receive. You will only hear one single phone ring before your call is diverted to voicemail.

Can I call someone who has blocked my number on Android

There is an option through which you can make a call to the number where you are blocked. You can hide your Caller ID or make your number private on Android to call on a blocked number. Setting up the number to private doesn't allow others to block your incoming call.

You can also dial a code *67 before the person's number you want to talk to (like *679876543210, where 9876543210 is the suspect's number). It also hides your number and shows it as unknown or private to their phone.

Can you block someone from texting but not calling?

Always remember that if you block someone on your phone, they can't make a call to you and text message to you. You can't allow someone to make a phone call but block from texting you. Keep this point in mind and block responsibly.

Why would an iMessage not be delivered?

If your message sent to iMessage does not change its color from blue, the message is not delivered successfully for any reason. The recipient phone may not have available Wi-Fi or cellular data network, or their phone may be turned off or set to Do Not Disturb mode, etc.
