How to text someone who blocked you

Table of Contents

It is impossible to text someone who has blocked the number you are trying to contact them from. If you try to text someone who has blocked you, they will not receive any notification and will not know you have tried to contact them again. Your text will simply be there as if it was sent, however they will never receive it.

There are few possible ways to contact someone who has blocked you, however you won’t be able to do from the same number.

You can:
1. Call/message from another number. This is the easiest way to contact somebody who blocked you. Simply ask your friend or get a new SIM card and contact the person.

2. Hide your caller ID. When you call or text using hidden caller ID, the call or text will go through. Android nor iPhone will be able to tell that you are calling or texting from the blocked number.
