How to Block Text Messages on Your iPhone


Receiving unsolicited text messages is the single most annoying thing that can happen. It’s frustrating and annoying to have to constantly check your inbox for new messages, whether they come from companies that are sending you unsolicited “special offers” or from an ex who just won’t let you have some space and let you go on with your life. You may easily prevent your iPhone from receiving text messages from any number by following the on-screen instructions provided by Apple.

You have the option of preventing contacts that are already saved in your phone from calling you, as well as blocking calls from unknown numbers that are not saved on your device. When you block a phone number, the person who owns that number will no longer be able to call or text you, but you won’t be able to let them know that they’ve been banned. Here’s how to prevent messages from coming through on your iPhone.

How to Block Text Messages on Your iPhone

1. On your iPhone, open the Messages application by pressing the Home button twice.

2. Open the text message that was sent to you by the person or number that you wish to block, and do so by clicking on the message’s title.

3. To begin, at the very top of the message, press the number or contact, and then, at the very bottom of the message, click the little info button.

4. On the Details screen, press the arrow that points to the right that is positioned next to the name, phone number, or address of the person who texted you. This will bring up additional information about that individual.

5. From the menu, select the option to “Block this Caller.”

6. When the confirmation pop-up appears, press the “Block Contact” button a second time to successfully block the contact.


Can I block text messages only on iPhone?

Launch the Messages application on your iPhone, select a text message that was sent from the phone number you wish to block, and then tap the profile icon that appears at the top of the screen. When you do this, your iPhone will no longer be able to receive any additional text messages from the specific number you just blocked. Use the menu button to access details, then tap Block this Caller, and finally Block Contact. Begin by opening the Messages app on your iOS smartphone.

What happens when you block a number on iPhone and they text you?

If you block a phone number or contact, the person who called you can still leave a voicemail for you, but you will not be notified of it. No matter whether they are sent or received, messages will not be sent. Additionally, the contact will not be informed that the call or message was blocked even if it was attempted to be. When you block an email address in Mail, the messages sent from that address are moved to the trash bin.

Will someone know I blocked their number?

If you have someone stopped from texting you, that person’s messages will never reach you. They won’t get any kind of notification informing them that they’ve been blocked, and it will still appear as though their messages have been delivered. However, you won’t get any of them, and you won’t be able to answer to them either.

When you block someone on text do they know?

According to Lavelle, “your text messages will go through as usual; they just won’t be distributed to the Android user” if an Android user has blocked you. It functions exactly like an iPhone, but there is no notification to let you know when anything has been “sent” (or there is none at all).

What do people hear when you block their number?

When making a call from the blocked number, the caller will hear either one ring or no rings at all, but the other phone will remain silent during the call. The caller is then alerted that the recipient isn’t accessible, and the call is then transferred to voicemail (if the person you’re phoning has set up that service for you to use).
