Frequently asked questions

We all have blocked dozens of numbers for many reasons. So, some of us may know what happens when we block a number. But for those who don’t, let me tell you.

What will you experience when you block a number?

You don’t receive any calls or SMS from that number. Exactly what you wanted to accomplish. Now whether you will receive a notification regarding that number calling or texting you depends on the phone. I mean that there are some android mobiles that will notify you of missed calls from blocked numbers. And even list them in the call logs. But only if the block occurred at the phone level. Whereas there are no exceptions in the apple phones. None of the iPhone models will notify you of a call or text from a blocked number. 
Android phones with custom UI are capable of notifying you even when you have blocked the number. Some custom UI android phones that I know are Xiaomi’s MIUI and Samsung Galaxy phones. They will show the missed call in the phone app. 
Now, if the blocking occurred at the carrier level. Then not even custom UI phones will show missed calls from them on the phone app. Blocking at the carrier level is the next level thing. The numbers blocked at the carrier level are stopped in such a way that they can’t reach up to your phone. 

What does the blocked number’s user experience when his number is blocked by someone else?  

He won’t get notified that the other person has blocked your number or anything like this. But it is easy to find out that someone has blocked you. Because whenever you call someone and that person has blocked you. Your phone gets cut automatically without a ring or there is a ring sometime. And it may say that the “customer is unavailable” or “the customer is busy.” And then you get directly diverted to voicemail. These are also faced normally when not even blocked but the single ring is a big indication that you may be blocked. 
Tip- you can give this trick a shot to find out whether you are blocked or not. Try sending an SMS to the person you suspect has blocked you. Send a text that has a high chance of getting a reply. If the person does not respond then your doubt may be correct. Because if you block someone you also don’t receive SMS from them. 

Can you call or SMS the number you have blocked?  

Blocking a number is a one-sided thing. There is no need to worry, you can block any number. You are not going to face any consequences. You can still call or SMS the blocked person just like before.  

Can I block a number on my landline too?

Yes, it is possible to block a number on a landline. You need to go through your phone’s manual for that as every landline is built slightly differently. If you have misplaced the manual then you can find it online. Make sure the manual is on your landline. You will probably get a dedicated section for blocking in the manual. Follow the written instructions to block the number. If you still don’t find a way to block then you can contact your carrier. You will get options like anonymous call rejection or blocking a specific number. The carrier will help you with that and you may have to pay some extra money for it too. If all of these don’t work and you only want to block specific numbers. Then you can try the priority ring feature. Many landlines have it, check if the one you have got has it too or not. This feature lets you change the ringing sound of the calls. So that you can easily distinguish between them and decide whether to accept or not.
