Blocked messages on iPhone

In recent years, it has become easier and easier for iPhone users to block unwanted calls - as long as the caller has not suppressed their number. Have you ever wondered what actually happens when you block someone on an iPhone? Knowing these signs will also help you recognize that someone has blacklisted you yourself.

You can prevent a specific user from interacting with you through Messages or Phone / FaceTime applications. The result is the same: the contact is blocked in all three applications at the same time. However, this will not stop the person from trying to contact you. And he will not hear the message "Your number has been blocked" - but will only wonder why you ignore his messages and calls.

Part 1: How to see/recover messages from a blocked number on an iPhone

What happens if a call is blocked?

If you blocked a phone number on an iPhone, which you then called from a second cell phone and saw what happened on both phones. The caller whose number was blocked either hears ringing or nothing. The called party's phone remains silent. The caller is informed that the recipient cannot be reached and, if necessary, is forwarded to the mailbox (if this service has been set up by the person called).

We don't know why the number of ringtones varies, but if you hear it ring twice or more you can be pretty sure that you haven't been blocked.

Even if someone has blocked you, you can still leave a message. Only the person who blocked you will not be informed.

What happens to a blocked text message?

Texting someone who has blocked you works as usual. The message is sent. You do not receive an error message. So, this is not yet an indication of a blockage.

If you have an iPhone yourself and you send an iMessage to someone who has blocked you, it will stay blue (which means it's still an iMessage). However, the person who blocked you will never see this message. You do not know whether the message was delivered. So, there is no proof that you have been banned.

As soon as you have blocked anyone from messaging you on your iPhone, you will not be able to see the messages that were sent when you were on their block list.

If you want to be able to see the person's texts on your iPhone, simply unblock their number.

Once the operator has blocked you, they will be unable to leave you a text message or an iMessage on your iPhone, regardless of the method they used. It means you may not be able to see any previously blocked messages, but you can get around those that are now simply by unblocking the sender and allowing future messages from that person.

Part 2: Tool to recover other mis-deleted messages, files, photos.

Usually, someone can clear unwanted messages from time to time to free up storage space on the iPhone. Sometimes, you can face accidental deletion of messages or other data. This may be due to accidentally deleting important messages and junk while trying to free up space, or due to iOS update failure, iOS firmware crash, malware attack, and/or device damage. Therefore, it becomes imperative to recover deleted text messages from iPhone.

Have you found that the text messages on the iPhone were lost or the text messages on the iPhone were accidentally deleted? Well, you can solve it! But remember the earlier you will get the better results. Otherwise, you will never see these deleted text messages again.
