Tired of calling your friend or relative, but don’t why the call is not getting connected? This might be because that person has blocked your number. These things happen in ordinary life. If someone is upset with you, you might end up getting into the blocked contact list.
But how do you know if someone blocked your number? And what are hints for this? Unusual messages or sometimes call gets disconnected after a voicemail. However, these are not only things that come up after the person blocks you. There could be other reasons. Also, they can be by mistake or intentionally. To decide whether the cause is valid or not, that’s up to you only. Here we will only tell you how to know if someone blocked your number.
The simplest way to know if someone has blocked your number is to ask them directly. And if you don’t want to chase them or you are not that kind of person who asks things directly.
How Do You Know If Someone Blocked Your Number?
Just follow the simple methods described below:
1. Calls Or Messages Are Never Answered
In case you are trying to reach out to a person via call or message, and you are not getting a response, then blocked contact can be a possibility. You might be sending continuous messages to that person, but that awkward silence from the other side can be a hint for you.
2. Unusual Message When You Call
“The person you are calling is unavailable right now”, you might have heard this line. This is one of the clear indications that confirm that someone has blocked your number.
When you are calling the number, and suddenly this type of line comes to your ears. And this doesn’t happen for one time; it continuously goes for how many times you try to contact.
If you are trying to contact them with messages only, you can also try with some of the social media platforms, if they are upset with you then could be blocked from there too. And if you are lucky, then you could indeed send a direct message to them. You can use Instagram, WhatsApp, Facebook, etc.
3. Simple Call Turns To Be A Voicemail
An unusual pattern of call is not the only hint that your number has been blocked. If you are calling and after the regular ring, an option to leave a voicemail comes up, then this is a usual case. But if the pattern of the ring is not familiar, and just after the first or second ring, the voicemail comes up, you could be in trouble. This is the way you can get to know if your number is blocked or not.
4. Number Is Busy
In the usual case, if the person you are calling is busy with something, then he/she will drop a message that they will contact you after some time. But if this is not the case, and you are listening to one famous line of all time, then you are the new addition to the blocked list.
If you are continuously calling and the other person is busy always, then this could be a case of a blocked number. This happens when an iPhone user stops a particular number. After blocking a number, the person who is calling will always listen to a single line “the number you are calling is busy, please try after some time”.
The operator may also come up to this same line when the person you are calling has put his/her phone on the DND mode. These days, everyone gets a fair amount of calls every day. And everyone wants to have spent good time with family, friends. That’s why people these days put their phone on DND mode so that they can get the required time. And if you are not aware of this thing, then you might face the same issue of not getting your phone call received by someone.
It Could Be Anything
There could be ‘n’ number of reasons why your call is not getting connected; the other person might be busy with something else, they could be driving. They might have lost your contact details, forgot to recharge with the monthly package or the battery just died. But please don’t jump to a conclusion, and don’t try to bring negative thoughts into your mind. Because if they start coming for once, it could go into a loop for a good amount of days.
You can try to ask them directly to know whether they have blocked you or not. And if you are not willing to go for it, then please respect the other person’s privacy also. You can also contact them via email or your mutual friend or relative. Family and friends always help you when you are in trouble, and here again, they can be your helping hands too.
Remember one thing; there is a line between begging for the attention and getting the required attention.
