Know if someone has blocked their number
Know if someone has blocked their number it may seem like an apparently too difficult undertaking to accomplish. With the right precautions, however, it is possible to collect rather reliable "clues" to find out if this has actually happened or not. Before proceeding with all the necessary checks, however, I would like to make one thing clear: the absolute certainty that someone has blocked your number preventing you from sending SMS or calling him, only the person concerned can give it to you. Clear? Well then let's take action!
Call the "suspect" number with your SIM
The first thing I invite you to do to find out if one of your contacts has blocked your number is call the "suspect" number with your SIM. Based on how the call ends, you can find out if your suspicions are well founded or not.
Then dial the contact number that you think has blocked you and start the call by pressing the symbol of handset. If the call ends almost immediately, after a ring or even after a half-ring, and you are immediately redirected to the answering machine, your number may have been blocked (or, more simply, the user's phone is turned off or unreachable. ). If, on the other hand, the telephone rings for a long time or even the user answers the call, it is clear that no blocking has occurred.
If your suspicions start to materialize, I invite you to call the user in question after a few hours. If the number in question is still unreachable, there is a good chance that you have actually been blocked (although you don't have to dismiss the hypothesis that the phone may still be turned off or, in any case, unreachable).
If you want to do the "9 test" and find out if your number has actually been blocked by a user, you have to try to call him anonymously. By hiding your number, the other person's phone shouldn't ring if it's turned off or unreachable. If, on the other hand, it rings, it is almost certain that your number has been blocked.
To call a user anonymously, you must prepend the latter's number # 31 # (if you are working from a landline phone, however, you must prefix the number you are interested in * 67 #). If also in this case the call ends almost immediately, after a ring or after a half ring, and you are immediately sent back to the answering machine of the user you have just tried to contact, the phone of the user in question is turned off or unreachable. If, on the other hand, the phone continues to ring, it is practically certain that your number has been blocked (as the block imposed on your number will not trigger, as it is hidden, and therefore your call will be treated as that coming from another number) .
If you need more information on how to call anonymously or how to call with a private number, take a look at the in-depth information I linked to you: there you will find explained in more detail how to proceed.
Call the "suspect" number with another SIM
Have you not yet been able to determine if a contact has blocked your number, despite having scrupulously followed the instructions I gave you in the previous lines? If so, you might want to try call the "suspect" number with another SIM or with your friend's number.
To carry out this operation, all you have to do is follow the instructions I have already given you in the previous chapter, or call the number you think has blocked you and pay attention to what happens when you try to make the call. If the cell phone of the contact you think has blocked you rings (while yours didn't ring more than once), it is evidently reachable and may have blocked your number.
If, however, also in this case the call ends almost immediately, after a ring or after a half ring, and you are immediately sent back to the answering machine of the user you just tried to contact, evidently his phone is turned off or unreachable.
How to bypass the blocking of your number
After following the instructions I gave you in the previous chapters, did you come to the conclusion that your number has been blocked? Don't get discouraged! Perhaps the contact that blocked you could have done it by mistake, perhaps without even realizing it, or it could have done so following a fight between you and, as soon as the waters have calmed down, he may be willing to retrace his steps.
How do you say? Would you like to try to bypass the blocking of your number to try to clarify the situation as soon as possible? In this case, before proceeding, I ask you to think about it: if a user has deliberately blocked you, obviously you do not want to be contacted by you. If you "force" things, then, the person in question could get further annoyed. Are you still sure you want to proceed?
If, on the other hand, you think that the contact has blocked you by mistake, you can try to get around the block by making an anonymous call to the number in question. To do this, as I explained a few lines above, you have to put the code before the number you want to call # 31 # from mobile or * 67 # from landline phone. Keep in mind, however, that seeing the private number, the user could also decide not to answer, mistakenly thinking that there is a call center or a telemarketing agency behind the call.
If the user responds, however, identify yourself immediately and explain why you made the anonymous call. If the contact in question has blocked your number by mistake, they will surely be happy to unblock you. If the person does not know how to revoke the block, explain how to proceed by reading the instructions in my guide on how to unblock a mobile number.
If the person does not answer the call, instead, try to contact him differently, perhaps via email or using a social network, such as Facebook, Instagram, etc. I am sure that, if the number has been blocked by mistake, he will be happy to revoke it.How to know if someone has blocked my number
