BY Sourav



Suppose someone has blocked you on Android or iPhone messaging or apps and now you urgently need to contact them. Generally, you won’t understand if a person blocks you from communicating with them on most iPhone and Android apps. Most of these apps prevent you from making further communication once you get blocked. So, how to deal with this problem? There are various ways to text someone who blocked you on Android, iPhone, and social media apps. 

Before getting started, ensure that you truly get blocked from sending messages

  • If you’re getting “Message not delivered” or no notification that your message was delivered on your mobile,  it indicates that your number might be blocked. In case you try to call the person but are unable to reach him/her, it proves that he/she has actually blocked your number. 
  • If you find all of your messages on social media marked as not delivered and you can’t see the profile or any details of the person, it means you have been blocked on social media.

Now that you get confirmation that you were blocked, let’s find out how to text someone who blocked you on Android and iPhone apps. 

How to Text Someone Who Blocked You

Use Another Phone Number

If you can’t contact a person from your principal phone number, try to send a message using another phone number. If you don’t have an alternate phone number, use the phone of your family member or friend or buy a SIM card to communicate with them. 

Alternatively, you can use Google Voice, Skype, or similar apps to set up an extra phone number on your device. You can even get a burner phone number if you don’t want to disclose your original secondary number. 

Use Social Media or Instant Messaging Apps

If an Android user blocks your number, you won’t be able to contact them through cellular calls, SMS, or RCS messaging. On the other hand, if your number gets blocked by an iPhone user, you won’t be able to contact the person through cellular calls, iMessage, SMS, or FaceTime. 

Nevertheless, you can still make communication with the person using third-party instant messaging apps like Telegram, WhatsApp, and Signal. If you get blocked in these messaging apps as well, ask one of your mutual friends to add both of you to a group chat.

Moreover, you can contact them using social media platforms like Facebook Messenger, Twitter, or Instagram. If they blocked you on social media as well, use a different Facebook or Instagram account to message them. Find the phone number of the person on these apps and send them a text. Your text will be delivered if they haven’t blocked you on the platform.

Use Anonymous Messaging Services

There is no need for a new SIM card or additional software to text a person who has blocked you. Online services like allows sending anonymous text messages to both local and international numbers. You can even send free messages anonymously to US mobile numbers using TextforFree. Another online messaging service that you can try is Send Anonymous SMS. 

TextforFree and SendAnonymousSMS both are completely free to use. But if you use Anonymoustext to send messages, it will ask for a $1.49 one-time payment. If you type more than 160 characters, you need to pay $0.50 for every extra 150 characters.

You can access these services by using any web browser on your PC, tablet, or mobile.

Use Text Messaging Apps

Text messaging and voice calling apps like SpoofCard let you create virtual phone numbers to keep your personal data safe. You can use the virtual number to message or call the person who has blocked you. You can find the SpoofCard application on both Google Play Store and App Store. It even allows trying the features for free but you’ll need to purchase the app credits to send messages from your virtual phone number.

Use iMessage Address

If your iMessage phone number is blocked by someone, you can communicate with them using your Apple ID email address. But make sure that your iPhone or iPad can start conversations via your email address.

Navigate to Settings> Messages> Send & Receive and choose your preferable iMessage email address. After that, select the email address again from the “Start New Conversations From” section.

When you see a checkmark beside the selected email address, go ahead and send a text message to the specific person.

Note: If the person you’re trying to send the message doesn’t have saved your email address on their device, the messages might not get delivered. The same can happen if the person blocked your email address as well on their device.

Hide Caller ID and Call the Person

If you’re still facing issues while texting someone, try to call them. If your call repeatedly goes to voicemail, it means the person has blocked you. In that case, you need to disable your caller ID. 

If you’re an iPhone or iPad user, navigate to Settings> Phone> Show my caller ID and turn off Show my Caller ID.

The process of hiding caller ID on Android Phones depends on the model of the device and the version of the operating system. However, the option to hide caller ID is generally found in the dialer app menu or in your phone. 

In case you have the email ID of the specific person, you can mail them. If your mail doesn’t get delivered it means the person blocked your email address as well.
