What Does Block This Caller Do on iPhone?

The "Block This Caller" feature on iPhone allows users to block phone calls, messages, and FaceTime calls from particular phone numbers, email addresses, or contacts. When a number or contact is blocked, the user won’t receive any notification of calls, messages or FaceTime requests from them, and they won’t be able to get through to the user’s phone. The feature can be useful for preventing harassment, unwanted solicitations, or avoiding individuals who may cause distress or anxiety. Additionally, the iPhone also has the ability to manage and unblock previously blocked phone numbers or contacts through the Settings app if the user changes their mind.

How do you know if someone blocked your number on iPhone?

What message will a blocked caller get?

When a caller is blocked, they usually get a message that says something like "The person you’re trying to reach is not available at this time" or "The subscriber you’re trying to reach is currently unavailable". In some cases, the message may not indicate that the caller has been blocked, but rather that the recipient simply can’t take the call. This depends on the specific phone or messaging app being used to block the caller. However, regardless of the message displayed, the blocked caller will not be able to reach the person who has blocked them until the block is removed.

What happens when you text someone who blocked you on iPhone?

If someone has blocked your number on their iPhone, when you attempt to send them a text message, it will not be delivered. Instead, you should see a "Not Delivered" notification in the Messages app. Additionally, you won’t be able to make phone calls to the person who blocked you, and any attempts to FaceTime them will also fail. The person who blocked you will not receive any notification that you attempted to contact them. It’s important to remember that being blocked does not necessarily mean the person has taken any sort of legal action against you—it simply means that they’ve halted all communication with you via their iOS device.

What does the other caller see when you block them?

When you block a caller, the other person won’t be able to call or message you anymore and they won’t receive any notification that you’ve blocked them. From their perspective, it will seem as if your phone is off or that you’re not available at the moment. They may still see your number in their phone contacts, but when they try to communicate with you, it won’t go through. It’s worth noting that some phone carriers offer a "blocked call log" service that allows users to see if their calls have been successfully blocked. So, if the person you’ve blocked has this service, they may see that their calls are being blocked when they try to reach you.

Can you tell if someone blocked your texts?

Yes, it is possible to tell if someone has blocked your text messages. If you try to send a text message to someone who has blocked you, the message will appear to have been sent on your end, but it will not be delivered to the blocked person’s device. Additionally, you may not receive any response or delivery notification from the blocked person. However, it’s important to note that there may be other reasons why a text message may not be delivered, so it’s best to verify with the person directly if you suspect they have blocked you.

Can a blocked number still text you?

Generally speaking, when you block a phone number on your mobile device, you prevent that number from being able to call or send text messages to you. However, it’s important to note that the limitations of block features can vary depending on the phone and messaging app being used. In some cases, blocked numbers may still be able to leave voicemail messages or send messages through certain messaging apps. Additionally, if a blocked number has multiple phone numbers or alternate messaging apps, they may still be able to contact you in those alternative ways. It’s always a good idea to test a block feature to understand the full extent of its limitations and to consider additional steps like changing your phone number if needed.
