One of the best instant messaging services one can use to send messages is the imessage though it is only available for ios users. Just like other instant messaging apps like whatsapp, Facebook messenger, etc, you can block and unblock someone on imessage.

When you are blocked on imessage, you won’t have the ability to send imessages to the recipient until the recipient unblock you on it’s imessage.

Now the question we have here is;

How to know if someone blocked you on imessage without texting them?

There’s no way to know if someone has blocked you on imessage without texting because it is through texting that you will know you have been blocked on imessage.

Aa the this time of writing this article, you can’t tell or figure out if you are blocked on imessage without sending messages to the recipient you feel that blocked you, and as it doesn’t get delivered especially on multiple occasions then it is a strong indication that you have been blocked.

There are more you should know when it comes to getting getting blocked on imessage and blocking someone on imessage.

Looking at the above picture, it is a typical example of when you are blocked on imessage, any sent imessage will show not delivered below the sent imessage.

However, there are more to know when imessage shows not delivered because it may not necessarily mean the recipient blocked you on imessage.

Some of the reasons why imessage doesn’t say delivered includes the following;

The recipient disabled imessage on it’s iPhone/iPad

You shouldn’t be surprised seeing an ios user disabling imessage on it’s iPhone or iPad cause I have seen quite number of ios users disable imessage on their iphones and iPad simply because they prefer whatsapp and Skype to imessage.

That’s crazy though.

Because of the fact that you are fully aware that the recipient is using an iPhone or iPad, you sent an imessage to the recipient and after few seconds it shows not delivered. Boom you came to a conclusion that definitely the recipient has blocked you.

You shouldn’t do that because the recipient might have disabled imessage on it’s iPhone or iPad.

Now if the recipient enabled the sent as sms when imessage is unavailable, the imessage sent will automatically be sent as sms text message which is green background.

However, if you the sender doesn’t have a texting plan or minutes, then this is where the problem lies because the message won’t be sent as sms as it will automatically fail and what you will see will be not delivered.

You try it all over again and same thing occurred and immediately you concluded that the recipient has blocked you on imessage.

You need to confirm it first before drawing a conclusion.

I recommend you to use any of your friends iphone and send an imessage to the recipient. If it gets delivered then be rest assured that you have been blocked but if not, the recipient imessage isn’t available.

2. Imessage not delivered because of no internet

Another major issue that will prevent imessage from getting delivered is the internet, once there’s no internet in the recipient phone or the sender’s phone, imessage will practically fail to deliver.

These are the the two things that will prevent imessage from being delivered to the recipient.

3. You have been blocked by the recipient

This is one of the most likely reason why imessage always says not delivered, the recipient has blocked you on it’s imessage.

When you are blocked on imessage, all imessages sent to the recipient that blocked you will never say delivered but instead what you will see will be not delivered and which will be below the failed imessage.

I’m saying this to answer the question being asked on if at all will imessage say delivered if blocked. Once again imessage will never say delivered until the recipient unblocked you on it’s imessage.

Do blocked iMessages deliver?

Block imessages will never say delivered as the imessages will automatically be restricted from reaching the recipient’s iphone or iPad. Imessage will only say delivered if you are not blocked and the imessages went through. 

Again the failed imessages won’t get delivered if you unblock the sender but instead what you will have to do is to request from the sender to resend the imessages. If the sender decline, I’m sorry you won’t receive the blocked iMessages.

What happens to iMessages when blocked?

When you are blocked on imessage, all sent imessages will fail to get delivered to recipient and on below the sent iMessages you will see not delivered.

When blocked on imessage you won’t have the ability to contact the recipient again until you are unblocked unless you will have to use another apple ID to contact the recipient or use any of the instant messaging apps like whatsapp, Skype, Facebook messenger, Google voice to contact the recipient.

Can you tell if someone blocked your texts?

Yes, you tell if someone blocked your texts if the sent texts fails to get delivered to the recipient especially on multiple occasions. 

For example you sent a text by 7am and it get delivered, you sent another one by 6pm and same thing happened as it get delivered. The the next two day you repeated all over again and the texts also failed to get delivered to the recipient.

It is a strong indication that the recipient blocked you on it’s texting app and if you continue to use the same blocked number to text the recipient, it will continue to fail until the recipient unblock your phone number.

I recommend you to use another phone to text to the recipient and check if it will get delivered.

If it does get delivered then be rest assured that the recipient indeed blocked you, but if it doesn’t get delivered then the recipient phone number isn’t available.

More Questions

Can you tell if someone blocked you without messaging them?

No you can’t. To tell if someone blocked you on it’s phone, you have to message the person or call the person and if your message and calls doesn’t go through or get delivered especially on different occasions, then you may have been blocked unless the recipient phone number isn’t available.

Once again all you have to do is to use another phone number to contact the recipient. This will help you to confirm if truly the recipient blocked you or the recipient phone number isn’t available.
