Ever found yourself in a situation whereby you sent a text message to someone very close to you and you noticed that the sent text message wasn’t delivered even after several days.
You tried again to send a text message to the same person on several occasions and multiple times but to find out that still your sent text messages wasn’t getting delivered.
It gets dawn on you that you have been blocked by the recipient or the person.
Now the question is, what will you do about it especially if the person is close to you like a friend or family member.
This leads us to the question of the day.
How can i text someone who has blocked me?
To text someone who blocked you on it’s mobile phone, you simply have to use another phone number or create a new account to send a text message to the person.
The answer I gave to you is the obvious simply because if someone happens to block you on it’s cell phone, there’s nothing you can do about other than request for the person to unblock you.
Mind you, there’s no way you can unblock yourself on the person’s phone unless you have access to the person’s phone.
Even if you do, don’t you think the person will block you once again?
In this article we’ll be looking at how to text someone who has blocked you on it’s cell phone, iMessage, whatsapp, and other social media sites.
It is quite painful and same time annoying when you think that you have been blocked but first, you need to be 100% sure that indeed someone blocked you and not just an assumption.
How to know you have been blocked
To know you have been blocked by a recipient, simply use another account, phone number or probably hide your number to call the person. If the text or call goes through then be rest assured that truly the person blocked you.
Why I’m saying this is because someone may not be available for a long period of time and you may think that the person blocked you whilst the person’s number or phone is offline at the moment.
You can never tell.
Most times if i notices that someone blocked my number or instant messaging account, I will hide my caller id to call the person. If the call goes through then I will know that the person is available and active and truly blocked my number.
But this is only if I care or give a damn about the person.
1. How to know if your cellphone number has been blocked
To know if your cellphone number has been blocked by the recipient, the call will redirect straight to voicemail or show number busy and end abruptly.
To very this, simply hide your caller id and call the person. Once the phone start to ring then it means the person blocked your number on it’s cellphone.
Let me show you how you can hide your caller id for outgoing calls.
All you have to do is to open the settings app on your iPhone and scroll down to Phone and open it.
As you opened it, look closely and you will see Show My Caller ID among the options presented to you and which falls under call options.
As it opens, you will see that Show My Caller ID is enabled by default, so you go ahead and disable it by sliding the button backwards and it will turn from green to grey or white just like on the picture below.
Once you have the Show My Caller ID disabled on your iPhone, while making an outgoing call both your name and phone number will be hidden from the recipient and instead it will display No Caller ID.
Because of the no caller id, you can easily call someone who blocked you and also got to know if truly the person blocked your number, but only if the person didn’t enable silence unknown callers on his or her iPhone.
open the phone app on your android phone and tap on the hamburger menu option and select settings.
Look below and you will see Supplementary Services, go ahead and open it.
When it opens you will see Show caller ID just like on the picture below.
Now tap on Show Caller ID and you will see three options which are;
- Network default
- Hide number
- Show number
If you select Network Default, then it will show the name and phone number you used when purchasing the sim card.
If you select Hide Number, it won’t show your name or phone number but rather will hide them and what will be displayed when calling someone will be a private call.
If you select Show Number, it will display the contact name the recipient used in saving your number on it’s cellphone. If the recipient didn’t save your number, then it will only display your phone number during outgoing call.
Once you select hide number, you can call someone that blocked your number and from there get to know if the person’s phone is active and truly blocked your number.
How can i text someone who has blocked me (SMS text message)
The best option to text someone who blocked you on sms text message is by using google voice.
Yes, this is the best answer I can give to you right now.
Why I said Google voice is because it works similar to cellular sms text messages and calls. That is once you get an assigned Google voice number, you can call any phone number even if the person is not using Google voice or has an account with them.
The only issue here is that it doesn’t work for all countries but I’m sure of the United States and Canada.
Try to download the app and see if it is available in your location.
Getting Started With Google Voice
Download and installed the google voice app on your smartphone and launch the app.
First you must have a google account before you can use the app, so kindly select your google account to get started.
Next is to select your preferred location or you can search for any of your preferred location.
After you must have done that, you will be presented with a list of phone numbers to select from. Kindly make your choice and note down the phone number on a paper or save the number in your phone.
Next is to accept the assigned phone number, so you go ahead and accept the phone number or you go back and select another phone number for your google voice account.
Once you have accepted the assigned phone number, next is to link your device to Google voice.
This literally means that you can make and receive calls on your google voice account with that very device. This is for security measures though afterwards you can still link your other devices to your google voice account.
Mind you, one can use google voice on a computer as well.
Next is to enter your phone number.
Kindly enter your phone number in order to verify your google voice account and a 6 digit code will be sent to your phone.
Enter the six digit number in the box hit on the verify button, finally you have created a Google voice account.
Now you’re set and ready to send text messages and make calls using your Google voice Account.
To text someone who has blocked you using google voice, kindly open the google voice app on your device, select the text message icon by tapping on it, enter the recipient phone number and body of the text and hit on the send button.
However, if the person finds out that you are the one sending the text message or sent the text message, the person might still go ahead to block your google voice number.
Nevertheless, you can delete your google voice account, create a new one and get a new phone number.
How to text someone who has blocked your phone number, you simply have to use google voice and you’re good to go.
2. How to know if you have been blocked on whatsapp
To know if someone blocked you on whatsapp, check to see if you can still see the person’s profile picture and about. If the answer is no, then you are blocked on whatsapp by the other person.
You don’t need to send a text message or call the person’s whatsapp number, as profile picture and about are the signs to know if you are blocked on whatsapp or probably not.
How to text someone who has blocked you on WhatsApp
To text someone who blocked you on whatsapp, you simply have to create a new whatsapp account and send a text message to the whatsapp number.
So far you cannot text someone that blocked you on whatsapp using the blocked whatsapp number except you create a new whatsapp account.
Better still you can use whatsapp alternatives like the iMessage, telegram, Facebook messenger, etc though it requires the person having an account with these instant messaging apps.

3. How to text someone who blocked you on imessages
To text someone who blocked you on iMessage, you simply have to create a new apple id in order to send a text message to the other person.
However, if the person only blocked your Apple ID and not the phone number, you can still send an iMessage to the person using the phone number linked with your iMessage.
Now if the person blocked both your Apple ID and phone number on it’s iMessage account, then you don’t have any option than to create another apple account and use the ID to send text messages to the other person.
In general, what I’m trying to explain here is that you cannot use the same blocked number or account to text someone that blocked you. Instead you will have to get a new phone number or create a new account to text the person.
In terms of calls, that’s possible as you can hide your number to call the person and it will go through.
