Are you sending texts to someone on iMessage but not getting any response from them? Maybe the person has blocked you on iMessage. So the question is how to know if someone blocked you on Messages on iPhone and iPad?
Well, there is no straightforward way to know whether a person has blocked you on iMessage or not. But there are a few signs that will definitely help you to understand whether you are blocked or not.
In this article, I will share a step-by-step guide to help you find out whether you are blocked by someone in iMessage.
Check via iMessage bubble color
Apple doesn’t have a separate app for iMessage. Instead, it is integrated within the messaging app only. iMessage usually appears in blue text color, and SMS appears in green text color.
If you have enabled the Send as SMS option on your iPhone when iMessage is unavailable, your text will be sent as SMS, which will cost you SMS charges.
So, if the person who you think has blocked you on iMessage, then the text messages will appear in green color.
However, this method doesn’t really confirm whether you are blocked on iMessage. As the green texts may appear when the other person doesn’t have a cellular service or data connection turned on. Or the person has disabled iMessage.
Check Message delivery notification
When you send an iMessage, you will see a Delivered message under it. Also, once the person sees your text, the status will turn into read.
However, by default, this option is not enabled. Also, the other person has to enable the option. So, you can see the message status.
So, if you don’t see the Delivered or Read message after sending a text in iMessage, there is a chance that you are blocked.
However, you will not see the Delivered message when their phone is off, out of service, or has an active internet connection.
I would recommend waiting for a few hours and try texting the person again and see what the message status says this time.
Try sending a text using another number
You can also try texting the person using another number. For instance, you can ask your friend to text the person and see if they get any response or not. Even if they don’t get any response, you should still see the message status like Delivered or Read.
So, in case, if the message status shows up on the other number and not yours. Then it is a pretty good indicator that your number has been blocked.
Phone rings once and then goes to voicemail
You can also try calling the person and see what happens. Because when you are blocked by someone, your calls will go directly to voicemail. Also, your voicemail messages will head to the blocked section.
As a result, the person will not see your phone calls, and even they will not get notified that you did make a call.
So in case if after calling the person, the call rang for once, and it heads to voicemail to straightly. Then there is a good chance that your number is blocked. But it could also mean that they have turned off their phone.
Hence, do call the person and a few times and see if your call is reaching to the person or not.
So that was all for your question about how to know if someone blocked you on iMessage. I hope the above methods did help you with your query. In case if there is anything else you wish to ask, then do comment below.
