How To Text Someone Who Blocked You on iPhone & Android Apps

how to text someone who blocked you on android iphone

You won't get any notifications if someone blocks you from messaging them on most Android and iPhone apps, and many of these apps don't allow continued communication after one person is blocked. On Android, iPhone, and social media apps, however, there are ways to text someone who has blocked you.

Before you get started, make sure you're not being blocked from sending messages.

  • If you keep getting "Message Not Delivered" or no notification that your message was delivered at all on your phone, your number may have been blocked. If you try to call the person but are unable to do so, that is the proof you require.
  • You have been blocked on social media if all of your messages were not delivered and you can no longer view the person's profile.

Now that you know if you've been blocked, let's look at how you can text someone who has blocked you on Android and iPhone apps.

Open WhatsApp and configure it as usual. Because you deleted your account, you should be able to message anyone at this point.

How to see if someone blocked you on TikTok

I'll go over three different methods for figuring out if someone on TikTok has blocked you.

The first step is to look through your followers list for the person who has blocked you.

  • Launch TikTok
  • Select the icon for your profile.
  • Hit the Following button
  • In the search field, type the username and hit enter. If your search yields no results, you are almost certainly blocked.

Second, look through the user's posts for any tags or other mentions of yourself. It's possible that you've been blocked if you can't see them or can't find the post entirely.

Finally, in addition to the previous two steps, you can use the discover page to look for the person directly.

  1. To do so, open TikTok  
  2. Press Discover
  3. Enter the username, and then hit search. If your search returns no results, you are almost certainly blocked.

How to Text Someone Who Blocked You On Instagram

How to tell if someone has blocked you on Instagram

  • Go to Instagram and sign in.
  • On a computer, go to (replace the "username" in the URL with the person's Instagram handle).
  • If the message "Sorry, this page isn't available" appears, you have almost certainly been blocked, assuming they haven't deleted their Instagram account.

Looking for the handle with a different Instagram account and trying the above is one way to make sure you haven't been blocked. The other account has been blocked if you find their page.

You can double-check by looking at the comments and likes on an Instagram account they follow (if the account is private, make sure you both follow it). If you find any, it means they haven't deleted their Instagram account and are still blocking you.
