Other method to see blocked numbers on android

Definitely you know the numbers or contacts you blocked on your android phone, so another way to view the blocked numbers is by going to the contact app and scroll down to any of the contacts you remembered that you blocked on your android phone.

Tap on the contact or open its details and you will see a block sign on the contact or phone number.

Block number

This shows the number or the contact is blocked on your android phone and you can go ahead to unblock the number by scrolling below and tapping on the unblock button.

This is how to see blocked numbers on android phone and this is applied to other android phone brands and not just on samsung phone.

How to see blocked numbers on message app

To see all the numbers you blocked on your android phone message app, go ahead and open the message app.

Tap on the hamburger menu located at the top right corner of your screen.

Android messages

You will see spam & blocked.

Tap on the spam & blocked folder, and right inside the folder you will see all the numbers you blocked on your android phone for text messages.

Let me remind you of this,all the numbers you blocked m using the phone app will still appear on the message block list because once you bloc a number on your android phone, you have blocked the number from calling and texting to your phone.

How to see blocked calls on android?

The truth is that you cannot see blocked calls on android because the calls never went through as the calls were automatically blocked before reaching the recipient phone.

Again, there’s no blocked calls folder on android phone, this alone tells you that there’s no way to see blocked calls on android as the calls never get delivered to the recipient phone or number.

Once you blocked someone on your android phone, you have restricted every means of the person reaching your number or your phone except in the case of instant messaging service like whatsapp, Skype, Facebook messenger, telegram, Google voice, etc.

Once you blocked someone on your android phone, that’s it.

Don’t expect to see blocked calls on android phone because there’s no such thing and not just on android but also applied to iphone.

What happens after you unblock someone on on android?

Immediately you unblocked someone on your android phone, the restriction imposed on the number will be removed and the number can call you and also send an sms text message to you.

Everything will return back to normal and both you and the unblocked number will have the ability to contact each other.

Remember that immediately you block someone on your android phone, you as well has automatically blocked yourself from contacting the number. You can only contact the number once you unblock the number.

So this is what happens once you unblock someone on on your android phone.

How do you call a blocked number?

The only way to call a blocked number is to use any of the instant messaging services like the google voice, whatsapp, Skype, Facebook messenger, etc or you go ahead and unblock the blocked number.

However, I must admit that this very question is quite funny though because you blocked someone on your android and still want to call the blocked number.

I’m sorry that isn’t possible using the default phone all cause once you blocked someone on your android phone, both you and the blocked number can’t call each other until you unblock the number.

You should bear this mind that once you hit on the block button for a particular contact on your android phone, you as well will not be able to call the number or send a text message.

The only solution is to use google voice or any other instant messaging apps like whatsapp, Skype, Facebook messenger and Co.

So this is how to see blocked numbers on android phone and same time you can go ahead to unblock the numbers or a particular number on your android phone.
