Last Updated on January 7, 2023 by Kennedy

Looking at the question we have here for today, how to see blocked calls on iphone, one might say it is not entirely possible to see all the called you have blocked on your iPhone.

But I’m telling you that it is very much possible but it goes down to one condition which I have already discussed in this article.

Right here I will show you the best means to check all the blocked calls on your iPhone irrespective of the fact that Apple didn’t make a provision for their users to see blocked calls.

This works if the caller used cellular means of calling and not facetime.

How to see blocked calls on iphone

To see blocked calls on iphone, you have to go to your voicemail and see if blocked numbers left a voicemail note to you.

If they did, then be rest assured that the blocked number tried to contact you and which his or her calls were blocked and redirected to voicemail.

Now listen, if you have an active voicemail on your iPhone and happens to block a number or a couple of numbers on your iPhone, if they tried to call you on cellular, they will be redirected straight to your voicemail. 

Now, it is left for the caller to leave a voicemail or probably end the call right away.

If you’re lucky enough the blocked caller happens to leave a voicemail and not ending the call right away, then you will see it in your voicemail. 

As long as you opened your voicemail and saw a voicemail note left by a blocked number, then be rest assured that the person contacted you and was equally blocked and redirected straight to voicemail.


DONT MISS:


So this is how to see blocked calls on iphone, and that is through voicemail. 

Incase you’re confused as to how to locate the voicemail note left by a blocked number, this is how to go about it.

  • Get started by opening the phone app on your iPhone. 
  • Navigate to the voicemail window and scroll all the way down to bottom and you will see Blocked Messages.
  • Open the blocked messages tab and you will see list of voicemail from those you blocked on your iPhone.

As simple as as that. 

I use this very often to check if a blocked number tries to contact me as I’m fond of blocking annoying contacts. 

In a situation where there’s no active voicemail

In a situation where there’s no active voicemail on your iPhone, then there’s no way to see blocked calls on iphone simply because the only way is when the blocked number leaves a voicemail.

In a situation whereby you don’t have an active voicemail on your iPhone, blocked numbers won’t be redirected to voicemail but instead the call will show busy and end right away.

This is one of the reasons it is good to have an active voicemail on a mobile phone unless your network service provider don’t have the voicemail feature for their subscribers.


Don’t Miss:


On android, it is very much easy to see blocked calls especially on samsung which I’m very conversant with. 

On Samsung phones, if a blocked number has tried to call you, it will indicate right on the call log as you will see the blocked number along with a blocked icon. 

Below is a typical example of what I’m talking about. 

Blocked numbers

You don’t need to go to any voicemail or blocked messages to see if a blocked number tried to call you on your android phone. 

This is one major feature I like about Android phones or probably Samsung phones, being able to see blocked calls without any long process.

Seeing blocked facetime calls

So far on iphone, it is not possible to see blocked facetime calls as it facetime calls don’t have anything to do with voicemail. 

You cannot or tell if someone you blocked on your iPhone tried to call you using facetime. 

It is only when the person uses cellular call which will redirect the person to voicemail. If the person later leave a voicemail note to you, then you will know that the blocked person has tried to call you.

But for facetime call, that is not possible. 

How to see blocked numbers on iphone

To see blocked numbers on iphone, you have to open the blocked numbers folder on your iPhone in order to see all the contacts you blocked on your iPhone. 

To get started, simply open the Settings app on your iPhone.

Talking about how to find blocked numbers on iphone, you only have to open the blocked contact folder in order to find all the blocked numbers on your iPhone.

How to tell if someone blocked your number on iPhone

If cellular calls are being redirected straight to voicemail, facetime calls not going through, and iMessage not getting delivered, then it likely to mean that you have blocked by the recipient on iPhone. 

A typical example to tell if someone blocked your number on iPhone is when your cellular calls are being redirected to voicemail.

Except in a situation whereby the recipient’s phone is switched off. 

However, if this happens on multiple occasions and different times and which both iMessage and facetime calls are not going through, then you must have been blocked by the recipient. 

Unless in a situation whereby the recipient’s phone is not active or switched off.

If the recipient has no active voicemail, then if you’re blocked by the recipient, it will show User Busy whenever you call the person.

And with this I come to the conclusion of the question being asked, how to see blocked calls on iphone. Remember the only method is to check your blocked messages and right there you will see if a blocked number has left a voicemail for you.

Once you have seen the voicemail, then it means the person tried to call you and which the call was blocked.
