New to iPhone? Don't Know how to see your blocked numbers?
The sole way to prevent people from calling us in the "old days" was to unplug the phone from the wall or take it off the hook. However, we now have the power to block people with only a few taps on our phones.
You can prevent anyone from calling you, prevent spam calls, and block text messages from specific senders. But what if you change your mind afterward or accidentally block someone? You can unblock a caller, but first, you have to figure out how to see who you've blocked.
This tutorial demonstrates how to view blocked numbers in the iPhone's Phone, FaceTime, and Messages settings. We'll also show you how to see who you've blocked in the Mail app as a bonus.
On your iPhone, you can see who you've blocked.
The following is a synopsis of what you'll learn in the tutorial:
- In the Phone app, you can see which numbers have been blocked.
- In the FaceTime app, you will see who has blocked you.
- In the Messages app, you will see who has been blocked.
- In the Mail app, you will see who has been blocked.
How to view Blocked Numbers in the Phone app
Open your iPhone's Settings and then follow the steps below.
1) Go to Settings and select Phone.
2) Scroll down to Blocked Contacts and press it.
A list of all blocked numbers will appear. To display information about a number, tap it; to delete it, tap Edit; or to add another number to the list, tap Add New at the bottom.
How to view Blocked Numbers in the FaceTime app
1) Go to Settings and choose FaceTime from the drop-down menu.
2) Tap Blocked Contacts at the bottom of the Calls section.
Much as in the Phone app, you can edit your list in the FaceTime settings.
How to view Blocked Numbers in the Messages app
1) Go to Settings and select Messages from the drop-down menu.
2) Select Blocked Contacts from the SMS/MMS menu.
Like Phone and FaceTime, you can edit your list in the Messages app.
How to view Blocked Numbers in the Mail app
1) Go to Settings and choose Mail from the drop-down menu.
2) Choose Blocked from the Threading menu.
And, as with the other apps listed above, you can edit the list in the Mail settings.
The Bottom Line
It's possible that you'll change your mind about someone you've blocked or that you'll realize you've unintentionally blocked someone. In any case, viewing your blocked numbers on your iPhone for each of these apps is easy.
