Are you tired of receiving unwanted calls on your Android phone? Do you want to unblock calls from certain contacts that you may have accidentally blocked? In this tutorial, we will guide you step-by-step on how to unblock calls on your Android device.

Method 1: Using the Phone App

If you have blocked a contact using the default Phone app on your Android device, you can easily unblock them by following these simple steps:

  1. Open the Phone app: Locate and tap on the Phone app icon on your home screen or in the app drawer.
  2. Access the Block list: Once the Phone app is open, tap on the three-dot menu icon (usually located at the top-right corner of the screen) to open a drop-down menu. From this menu, select “Settings” or “Call settings”. Look for an option called “Blocked numbers” or “Block list”. Tap on it to access the list of blocked numbers.
  3. Unblock a contact: In the Block list, you will see a list of all contacts that you have blocked.

    Scroll through the list and find the contact that you want to unblock. Tap on their name to view their details. On their contact page, look for an option like “Unblock” or “Remove from block list”. Tap on it to unblock the contact.

  4. Confirm unblocking: A confirmation message may appear asking if you want to unblock the contact. Confirm your decision by tapping “OK” or a similar button.

Congratulations! You have successfully unblocked a contact using the Phone app on your Android device.
