iPhone, Tutorials

Are you tired of not receiving important text messages on your iPhone? If you have accidentally blocked someone or suspect that you may have unintentionally blocked a contact, worry not! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the step-by-step process to unblock text messages on your iPhone.

Step 1: Open the Settings App

To begin, locate and tap on the Settings app icon 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 device.

Step 2: Scroll down and Tap Messages

In the Settings menu, scroll down until you find the option labeled Messages. Tap on it to proceed to the next step.

Step 3: Tap Blocked Contacts

In the Messages settings menu, locate and tap on Blocked Contacts. This option allows you to manage the contacts that are currently blocked from sending you text messages.

Step 4: Unblock a Contact

You will now see a list of all the contacts that are currently blocked. To unblock a specific contact, simply swipe left on their name or phone number.

A red Unblock button will appear. Tap on it to unblock the contact.


If you want to unblock multiple contacts at once, tap on the Edit button in the top-right corner of the screen. Then tap on each contact you wish to unblock, and finally, tap on Unblock.


You have successfully unblocked text messages from a specific contact. From now on, you will be able to receive text messages from them without any issues.

Additional Tips:

  • If you are still not receiving text messages from a contact even after unblocking them, ask the contact to check if they have accidentally blocked your number on their iPhone.
  • If the issue persists, try restarting your iPhone and ask the contact to do the same. Sometimes, a simple restart can resolve such problems.

We hope this tutorial was helpful in guiding you through the process of unblocking text messages on your iPhone. Now you can stay connected with all your important contacts without any hindrance. If you have any further questions or need more assistance, feel free to reach out to our support team.
