What Is It Contact Blocking?
Blocking a contact on iPhone can be done by accessing the conversation with the contact, tapping on the contact’s name, and selecting ‘Info’ to block the caller. This is done to prevent them from sending messages, but it may not always be effective.
Additionally, blocking a phone number may not block iMessages, and vice versa. To manage blocked contacts, one needs to go to Settings, then Messages, tap on ‘Blocked Contacts’ to see the list, and add or remove contacts from the list.
When a blocked number sends a text, they should never reach the recipient. However, blocked SMS texts may still appear as sent, and blocked iMessages will not be marked as delivered.
It is important to block all contact information, and consider updating iOS or doing a soft reset if the issue persists.
