How to Find Blocked Numbers on iPhone

Blocking someone can prove to be a real boon when it comes to filtering out some annoyances from your life. However, there are also instances when you accidentally block someone or wish to block them temporarily.

In both cases, it is imperative that you know where to find the list of blocked contacts to unblock them if and when you wish to do so.

Peculiarly, there is not one but three different routes you can take to see the list of all blocked contacts on your iPhone. However, the lists aren’t different and any changes made will reflect everywhere.

View Blocked Senders Using Settings app

Checking the list of blocked senders isn’t rocket science. Once you know where to access the list from, it is as plain sailing as it gets.

In the Phone Settings

To view the list of currently blocked senders, open the ‘Settings’ app from the home screen or the app library of your iPhone.

Then, scroll down to locate the ‘Phone’ tab and tap on it to proceed.

After that, scroll down to locate the ‘Blocked Contacts’ tile and tap on it to continue.

You will now be able to see the list of all your blocked contacts on your iPhone.

To remove any contact/number from the blocklist, either tap on the ‘Edit’ button present on the top right corner.

Then tap on the ‘red dot’ preceding the contact name to reveal the ‘Unblock’ option.

Next, tap on the ‘Unblock’ option to remove the number from your contact list.

To take this route, from the Settings app, scroll down to locate the ‘Messages’ tab and tap on it to proceed.

Then, again scroll down till you locate the ‘SMS/MMS’ section and tap on the ‘Blocked Contacts’ option present under it.

Alternatively, you can also tap and hold onto a contact tile and swipe right to the left edge to unblock the contact in a single step.

In the FaceTime Settings

One more route you can take to see the list of blocked senders is from the FaceTime settings. This method comes in really handy when you are already tweaking or adjusting your FaceTime settings and you wish to take a quick look at the currently blocked senders list.

To access this list this way, from the Settings screen, scroll down to locate the ‘FaceTime’ option and tap on it to proceed.
