This article provides guidance on how to reverse the process of blocking a contact on your iPhone or iPad. The steps outlined are applicable for iOS 11 and later versions, as well as iPadOS 13 and subsequent versions. While specific menu names might vary slightly across different OS versions, the fundamental steps remain consistent.

How to Unblock People on iPhone or iPad

If you previously blocked a contact on your iPhone or iPad, follow these steps to unblock them and allow them to call, text, and FaceTime you again:

  1. Open Settings > Phone. If you're using an iPad (which doesn't have the Phone app), go to Settings > FaceTime.

  2. Tap on "Blocked Contacts" (in older OS versions, this might be labeled as "Call Blocking & Identification").

  3. In the list of Blocked Contacts, swipe from right to left across the contact's number, then tap "Unblock."

  2. Scroll down and tap on "Blocked Contacts" (or simply "Blocked" in older OS versions).

  3. Swipe from right to left on the contact's number and tap "Unblock."

How to Unblock Callers in Your Contacts List

If the blocked number belongs to someone in your Contacts list, unblock them directly from their contact information:

  1. Open the Contacts app and find the contact's entry.

  2. Scroll to the bottom of their contact details and tap "Unblock this Caller."

How to Unblock a Number With Your Phone Company

If you used your phone company's call-blocking service to block a contact, you'll need to contact your phone company directly to unblock the number. The steps provided earlier in this article are specific to numbers blocked using Apple's built-in features on your device.


How can you tell if someone blocked your number on iPhone?

To determine if someone has blocked your number on their iPhone, you should ask them directly. Alternatively, if you notice that your calls only ring once and then go to voicemail consistently, it could indicate that you've been blocked. However, this isn't a definitive confirmation, as the person might be on another call or have their iPhone in Do Not Disturb mode.

How do you unblock someone on Facebook on an iPhone?

To unblock someone on Facebook using the Facebook app on your iPhone:

Step 1. Open the Facebook app and go to Menu > Settings & Privacy > Settings.

Step 2. Scroll down and select "Blocking" under the Privacy section.

Step 3. In the "Blocked People" section, find the person you want to unblock and tap "Unblock."

Step 4. Confirm your choice by tapping "Unblock" again.
