Consider the scenario where you had a problem with someone who has now blocked you on Android or iPhone messaging or applications, but you now have a real, legitimate reason to get in touch with them. On most Android and iPhone apps, you won’t typically be able to tell whether someone has blocked you from messaging them. Numerous of these apps stop allowing communication once one of you has blocked the other. How then do you avoid this? There are methods for texting someone who has blocked you on social media apps, Android, and iPhone.
Verify that you have indeed been prohibited from sending messages before you begin.
- Your number might have been blocked if you keep receiving the error message “Message Not Delivered” or no notification at all that your message was delivered. The necessary evidence that your number is genuinely blocked is provided if you attempt to phone the person but are unable to do so.
- You have been blocked on social media if all of your messages are returned as undeliverable and you are unable to read the person’s profile or see any other information about them.
After determining whether you have been blocked, let’s examine how to SMS someone who has blocked you using Android and iPhone apps.
In a nutshell, the following are the straightforward methods for texting someone who has blocked you:
- Dial an alternative number
- Make use of programs that let you test texting using virtual numbers.
- Utilize social media apps or instant messaging from a distinct profile.
- Make use of an iMessage address.
- Use anonymous texting services to send messages
- Fake your caller ID and dial the number
1. Use a different phone number
Send the text message from a different phone number if your primary phone number is ineffective for contacting the recipient. Do not possess a backup telephone number. Purchase a new SIM card or SMS them using a friend’s or relative’s phone (number).
To add an additional phone number to your device, you can also use programs like Google Voice, Skype, and others. Get an anonymous burner phone number if you don’t want to use your “actual” backup number.
2. Use apps that allowing test messaging with virtual numbers
You can establish fictitious phone numbers with the messaging and voice calling app SpoofCard to shield your personal data. The virtual number can be used to phone or SMS persons who have blocked you. You may download the SpoofCard app for free from the App Store and Google Play. The features of the app are free to use, but in order to send texts using your virtual number, you must buy app credits.
3. Use Instant Messaging or Social Media apps from a different profile
If someone blocks your number from SMS, phone calls, or RCS messaging, you won’t be able to contact them if they’re using an Android device. You won’t be able to call, FaceTime, utilize cellular data, or send SMS messages to someone whose iPhone has blocked your number.
The person is still reachable using third-party texting and instant messaging services like Signal, Telegram, and WhatsApp. You may still get in touch with someone even if they have blocked you on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook Messenger, Snapchat, or Instagram. If they’ve blocked your main Facebook or Instagram accounts, text them from a new account.
Utilize these apps to find the person’s username or phone number and send them a message. Your text will reach them if they haven’t blocked you on the platform.
4.Use Anonymous Texting Services
Texting someone who has blocked you doesn’t require any additional software or a new phone number. You can send anonymous text messages to local and international lines using web-based services like AnonymousText.com. To U.S. phone numbers, you can send free (anonymous) text messages using TextforFree. The web-based messaging service SendAnonymousSMS is another one that is noteworthy.
The use of TextforFree and SendAnonymousSMS is free. A one-time fee of $1.49 must be paid in order to send SMS using AnonymousText. If your text is longer than 160 characters, you will be charged $0.50 for every 150 more characters.
On a computer, a mobile device, a web browser-enabled device, or any other internet-capable device, you can access these websites/services.
5.Use an iMessage Address
You can get in touch with someone using your Apple ID email address if they block your iMessage phone number. To begin with, check to see if your iPhone or iPad can initiate calls using your email address.
Choose the iMessage email address you like by going to Settings > Messages > Send & Receive. Then click the email address once more in the “Start New Conversations From” area.
A tick will appear next to the chosen email address, indicating that you can now send the individual an SMS.
The receiver must have your email address saved on their device in order for your messages to be delivered. Or perhaps the recipient’s device has also blocked your email address.
6.Hide your Caller Id and Call The Person
Try phoning them instead if you’re still having problems texting someone. The person has probably blocked you if your calls keep going to voicemail. However, you can still get in touch with the person. All you need to do is turn off caller ID.
Turn off Show My Caller ID in Settings > Phone on your iPhone or iPad if you have one.
Depending on the model and version of the operating system, there are various methods for hiding caller ID on Android phones. The option to hide caller ID, however, is typically located in the phone’s or dialer app’s menu. You can find step-by-step instructions in your phone’s handbook or by getting in touch with the maker of your device.
If you have the person’s email address and urgently need to get in touch with them, you could email them. They have most likely also blocked your email address if you do not receive a response to your emails or if they are not delivered.
