But that’s not true. There are some indications that can tell if someone has blocked us on their iPhone.

If you want to know that someone has blocked you or not the call is the best source of evidence.

You can test yourself that what actually happens to a blocked call. Do block yourself and monitored the experience on both phones. You will see that the call does ring but only once. You will be informed that the recipient isn't available, and will divert to voicemail.

Has someone Blocked your number on iPhone?

Although it is a fact that there isn't a exact way to find out for sure if you've been blocked, beyond checking the blocked list of your friend's iPhone . Therefore, in this article, you will come to know about some clues, which may indicate that someone has blocked your number on his/her iPhone.

Text Message

Find out here that what your text messages reveal if you are sending them to check whether a person has blocked your number or not. So check it out!

  • Text messages from blocked numbers will be delivered but recipient will never see it. It means that you may think your message is delivered but in actual it doesn’t. The message sends as normal, and you don't get an error message.
  • It is confirm that the blocker will never be notified of the message, but it does appear at the very bottom of their voicemail list in the Blocked Messenger section, but most people probably won't check there. So it can be concluded that this is no help at all for clues.


iMessage is an interesting as well as a bit frustrating way to find out if someone has blocked you. But it is possible If you're using an iPhone yourself, you used to be able to get a clue as to whether someone has blocked you by sending an iMessage. So what actually happens when you send an iMessage.

  • The iMessage would attempt to send, and if that person has blocked you then after a couple of minutes, your iMessage would resend as a text message that would never be received by that person.
  • If you are using iOS 9 then in this case, it'll immediately say Delivered but remain blue which means it's still an iMessage. So actually it didn’t deliver at all.
  • Most users have their Read Receipts turned on so when you send someone iMessage, you can also see when the person has read it. If you see a ‘Delivered’ instead of the ‘Read at’, that indicates two things, either you’ve been blocked or the person has turned off read receipts.


So if you have tried the above two clues and they indicated that you might be blocked by that person then go for another clue and that is your call.

  • If your calls end up in voice mail with the single ring or busy tone, then your number has been blocked.
  • In case the person always has had read receipts turned off, you will not notice any change in iMessage. You’ll see your message, as Delivered. In this case, the call is your only way to figure out if you’ve been blocked.
  • Calls always go to voicemail after exactly one ring. You can try calling multiple times and when you are cut to voice mail after one ring, you can most likely assume that you’ve been blocked.
