Are you wondering how to find blocked contacts on your iPhone? Blocking someone on your phone can be helpful when you want to avoid unwanted calls, messages, or FaceTime requests. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of finding and managing your blocked contacts on an iPhone.
Step 1: Open the Settings App
To get started, locate and tap on the Settings app on your iPhone’s home screen. The Settings app is represented by a gear icon and is usually found on the first page of your home screen.
Step 2: Scroll Down and Tap on ‘Phone’
In the Settings app, scroll down until you see various sections. Look for the section labeled Phone, which contains settings related to phone calls. Tap on it to proceed.
Step 3: Find and Tap on ‘Blocked Contacts’
Within the Phone settings, scroll down until you find an option called Blocked Contacts. This option allows you to manage all the contacts that you have blocked on your iPhone. Tap on it to continue.
Step 4: View Your Blocked Contacts
You will now see a list of all the contacts that you have blocked on your iPhone. The list includes both phone numbers and email addresses that are blocked from contacting you through various means such as calls, messages, or FaceTime requests.
- If a contact has been blocked using their phone number, their name will appear with a red circle containing a minus sign (-) next to it.
- If a contact has been blocked using their email address, their name will appear with a red circle containing a minus sign (-) and an envelope icon next to it.
Step 5: Unblock a Contact
If you wish to unblock a contact, simply tap on their name in the Blocked Contacts list. This will open a contact information page with options to unblock the contact. Tap on Unblock this Caller to remove the block.
Unblocking a contact will allow them to call, message, or FaceTime you again.
Step 6: Add New Contacts to Your Block List
To add new contacts to your block list, tap on the Add New.. option at the bottom of the Blocked Contacts list. This will open your iPhone’s contacts list where you can select and block specific contacts.
The process of blocking new contacts may vary slightly depending on your iPhone model and iOS version.
You have now learned how to find and manage blocked contacts on your iPhone. By utilizing this feature, you can have better control over who can reach you through calls, messages, or FaceTime requests.
Remember that blocking someone doesn’t notify them that they are blocked. They will still be able to leave voicemails if they call you directly or through another number.
