Do you have a contact that you accidentally blocked on your iPhone? Don’t worry, unblocking a number is a simple process that will allow you to receive calls and messages from that contact once again. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to unblock a number on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Settings App

To begin, unlock your iPhone and locate the Settings app on your home screen. The Settings app is represented by an icon with grey gears. Tap on the icon to open the app.

Step 2: Scroll Down and Tap on ‘Phone’

Once inside the Settings app, scroll down until you find the ‘Phone’ option. It is usually located towards the middle of the list of settings. Tap on ‘Phone’ to proceed.

Step 3: Tap on ‘Blocked Contacts’

In the ‘Phone’ settings menu, scroll down again until you see the ‘Blocked Contacts’ option. This option allows you to view and manage all the contacts that you have blocked on your iPhone. Tap on ‘Blocked Contacts’ to access this list.

Step 4: Unblock the Contact

Inside the ‘Blocked Contacts’ menu, you will see a list of all the contacts that you have blocked. Locate the contact that you want to unblock and tap on their name.

Note: If there are many contacts in this list, consider using the search bar at the top of the screen to quickly find and select the desired contact.

Option 1: Swipe Left and Tap ‘Unblock’

If you prefer a quick method, swipe left on their name in the list of blocked contacts. A red ‘Unblock’ button will appear on the right side of the screen. Tap on ‘Unblock’ to confirm and remove the block.

Option 2: Tap ‘Edit’ and then ‘Unblock’

If you prefer a more detailed method, tap on the ‘Edit’ button located at the top right corner of the screen. This will allow you to select multiple contacts for unblocking if needed. Once you have selected the desired contact(s), tap on ‘Unblock’ located at the bottom left corner of the screen.

Step 5: Verify that the Contact is Unblocked

After unblocking the contact, you will be redirected back to the ‘Blocked Contacts’ menu. Make sure that the previously blocked contact is no longer listed here. This indicates that they have been successfully unblocked from your iPhone.

Congratulations! You have successfully unblocked a number on your iPhone. You can now receive calls and messages from that contact without any issues.

Note: Keep in mind that unblocking a contact does not automatically restore any deleted messages or call history with that contact. Those records will remain deleted unless backed up elsewhere.

  • To block a number again, simply follow these steps until Step 4 and tap on ‘Block this Caller’.
  • If you have accidentally blocked someone, it’s always a good idea to inform them that they are now unblocked so they can resume contacting you without any confusion or hesitation.

We hope this tutorial has been helpful in guiding you through the process of unblocking a number on your iPhone. Now you can manage your blocked contacts list with ease!
