Unblocking a Number on an iPhone

Thanks to Apple’s visionaries who realised the useful block feature shouldn’t be permanent, Unblocking a Number on your iPhone couldn’t be simpler. This is due to how simple it is to unintentionally or accidently block someone. Perhaps you unintentionally blacklisted a contact while filtering spam texters or automated callers. Or perhaps you purposefully blocked a friend or coworker so as to avoid being bothered for a while, and you now wish to unblock them. You might also want to look up the blocked list and see if the number in question is included because you’re having problems calling a contact or vice versa. This is the procedure.

You might be able to retrieve a contact’s phone number if you removed it after initially blocking it. If you merely deleted it from Contacts, it can still be visible in the Phone app’s Recents call log or Voicemail log. You may need to contact your phone provider to obtain your contact’s call record, which will list incoming and outgoing calls by date and time, if you deleted the contact from these logs as well. Check out our article on how to stop unauthorised calls on your iPhone as well.

It’s crucial to understand that, while being unable to call, FaceTime, or text you, banned numbers can still leave a voicemail for you. Your iPhone routes calls from blocked numbers to voicemail right away without alerting you to the new message. The voicemail left by the blocked caller will still be accessible for you to choose whether or not to listen to it.

The concept behind the Block and Unblock choices is that you can choose how, when, and by whom you wish to be contacted given that iPhones are portable and tied to their owners wherever they go.
