How To Know If You’ve Been Blocked
However, before concluding that you have been blocked, you must first check to see whether you have been truly blocked. Because many times, people conclude that they have been blocked when it might just be that the person they are trying to reach just isn’t available. Perhaps their phone was stolen, or they just don’t have an internet connection. Either way, there are a few ways to check if you have been blocked.
How To Know If You’ve Been Blocked on iPhone
There are several indicators you should keep an eye out for to know if you’re being blocked. Because these techniques are not perfect, it may seem as though you are also blocked in cases when the individual is either offline or has the Do Not Disturb feature on.
1. An Automated Message in Your Inbox.
If you’re wondering if you’ve been blocked on iPhone, start with this warning indication. Every time you send a message, an automated message is sent to you.
If you get a message like that, you’re not blocked since people who use the ‘Do Not Disturb mode’ often employ automated messages like this. Only numbers that have not been blocked may receive automated messages.
You may have been blocked if you don’t get an automated message response after sending a text message to the recipient. Here are some other signs that you can look out for to know if you’ve been blocked on iPhone.
2. A Message Sent From Your iPhone Did Not Deliver
If you have been blocked, the next thing to check is whether or not your message has been sent and delivered. A contact may have blocked you if you send an iMessage and nothing says Delivered underneath the text bubble.
When it comes to iMessages, you’ll only receive a ‘delivered’ notice on the most recent iMessages in a string of messages that have been delivered, but you’ll will not see ‘delivered’ on the most recent message in a conversation if that message hasn’t been delivered.
You may have been blocked if all of your previous messages have been delivered except for the most recent one.
3. The “Not Delivered” iMessage Error
Using this method, you can determine whether you’ve been blocked from texting. After sending a message, you’ll see an error notice that says “iMessage Not Delivered Error” under the text box.
Enable SMS text messages on your iPhone if you find yourself in this circumstance. Your iPhone will try to send a text using your cellular plan whenever you get an iMessage Not Delivered Error.
Instead of sending it over iMessage, you may send it manually. Suppose you manually send the SMS and do not get a delivery indication. In that case, you may have been blocked.
You may manually send the SMS by following the steps mentioned below:
– Look for the text containing ‘Not Delivered’ and click on the red info button to learn more.
– “Try Again,” “Send as Text Message,” and “Cancel” are the available options. To send a text message, choose the “Send as Text Message” option.
– After selecting the option, your phone will try to send the message again
How To Know If You’ve Been Blocked On Android and Social Media
If you continue getting the “Message Not Delivered” notification, your number may have been blocked. Or if you are not getting any notification that the message you sent was delivered. Furthermore, if you make a phone call to the person and it’s not going through, you don’t need further proof that you’ve been blocked.
But how about social media? You’ve been blocked on social media if you don’t see the person’s profile anymore or get any messages from them.
So how do you get past this? It’s been confirmed that you’ve been blocked. Now let’s look at ways you can get past this and reach the person who blocked you.
How to Text Someone Who Blocked You on Android and iPhone
Go to the Google Play Store or App Store and download the SpoofCard App. Then pick SpoofText from the main menu, then New Spoof Text from the drop-down menu that appears.
Assuming that you’ve followed these procedures, next, enter the number of the individual that you are trying to reach.
Your phone’s contacts must be shared with the app so it can easily choose the number. Now you can draft your text and send it.
If you don’t want to go about it like that, you may use an alternative method. You may use an anonymous texting service. This enables you to contact anybody through the internet to get in touch with the individual you’d want. The following are a few well-known options for sending texts with no one knowing your identity:
Just go to the website, input the phone number, draft your text, and press then send.
How to Text Someone Who Blocked You on iMessage
If you’re blocked on your iPhone, you won’t get any indication of the change. In other words, someone may unblock you and then block you again without you ever knowing about it.
On iPhone’s iMessage, sending a message to someone who has blocked you is possible. All that’s required is a simple caller ID adjustment to change the caller ID on your phone.
Before anyone can block you, they’ll need your phone number or email address; hence, you’ll need to change your caller ID. Since the recipient may not know your other email, you may use it to send the iMessage.
Follow these steps to send a Text message to the person who has blocked you on your iPhone:
– Navigate to the iPhone’s Settings app.
– Click on messages
– Select “Send & Receive”.
– Next, locate and select You Can Reach Me By iMessage
– Add a new email address by clicking the “Add another email” option.
– Next, verify the email
– Afterwards, navigate to ‘Start New Conversations from’ and enter the new email address that you just verified.
Only the old email address was blocked, not the one you newly confirmed; therefore, your iMessage to that number will go through.
How to Text Someone Who Blocked You On Snapchat
Were you blocked on Snapchat?
If you were blocked on Snapchat, you wouldn’t be able to communicate with the person who blocked you directly via your Snapchat account, just like on any social networking site. However, there are one or two things you can do to get around this.
You can create a new account on Snapchat. If you already have another Snapchat account, add the individual to your friends’ list to start a conversation with them. With your new account, you can request that they unblock you.
Another way to go about this is if you have a mutual friend with that person. Try reaching out to that mutual friend and explain the situation to them. Then ask them to help you contact the person who blocked you to request an unblock. You may also try to connect with them on other social media platforms. It is possible they mistakingly blocked you because they want to take you off their best friends list on Snapchat.
How to Text Someone Who Blocked You On WhatsApp
It is possible to send a text message to the person who has blocked you on WhatsApp in three ways:

After that, just log back into your account as usual. Now that you’ve erased your account, you’ll be free to message anybody.
The second method is to leverage a Whatsapp group.
You may also start a WhatsApp group with a friend who knows both of you and ask them to add you and the individual that blocked you to the group. With this method, you may send a group message. You may request that the group admin exit the group so that just the two of you can chat freely.
The third method involves reaching out to the person through other social media apps or through a phone call or a text message and asking to be unblocked.
How to Text Someone Who Blocked You On Instagram
You can’t text a person who has blocked you on Instagram. That is not possible. But there are a few things you can do to get around this.
In order to communicate with them, you may create a new Instagram account and send them messages from it. This is a rather simple and straightforward method of getting unblocked on Instagram.
Also, if you have a friend with an Instagram account, you may use that account to contact the individual that blocked you. You could also consider calling the individual directly and requesting that your account be unblocked if there isn’t any history of animosity between you two.
