How to know if someone blocked your number

You dial again, but you’re not getting through. You’re frustrated. Maybe you’re a little anxious. What’s going on? Maybe the person you’re trying to get in touch with forgot his phone, or the battery is dead, or he’s got it on silent or turned it off for some reason. Or maybe he blocked your number, either by accident or on purpose.

When you block a number, you no longer receive calls or text messages from that person. With Apple’s iPhone, it also blocks FaceTime contacts. This can be helpful for stopping some unwanted spam calls, but it can also be used for personal reasons.

You won’t get any sort of official notice if someone blocks your calls, but you can make an educated guess by looking for these signs:

Your calls are never answered
The first indication that something is up is that you’re calling and sending text messages and you get no answers from either method. There are many reasons this might be happening, but a blocked number is a possibility. For most cases of blocked numbers, text messages sent from your end will appear to go through normally, but the person you’re sending them to simply won’t receive them. That radio silence is your first hint that something might be up.

A single ring sends you to voice mail
If you call a phone and hear the normal number of rings before getting sent to voicemail, then it’s a normal call. If you’re blocked, you would only hear a single ring before being diverted to voicemail.

An unusual ring pattern doesn’t necessarily mean your number is blocked. It may just mean the person is talking to someone else at the same time you’re calling, or has the phone off, or sent the call directly to voicemail. Try again later. If the one-ring and straight-to-voicemail pattern persists, then it may be a case of a blocked number…..Read More>>>>
