How do you know if someone blocked your number on Verizon?
If you are blocked with this other person, your texts would go through normally on your end, and any calls would go straight to voicemail. On their end, they would never receive your texts, although they may receive a notification that you tried calling them.
If you receive a message from Verizon that says “Message Blocked,” it means that the recipient has blocked your message from being received and viewed. This could be for a number of different reasons, such as that the recipient does not know you, does not recognize the phone number you are using, or is using features to prevent spam and unwanted messages.
Why a Message Could be Blocked From Verizon
The most common reasons why messages may be blocked by Verizon include:
- The recipient’s number is not registered in the contact list of the sender.
- The recipient’s phone has been set up to block messages from unknown numbers.
- The recipient’s phone may be set up to block entire domains, making it unable to receive messages from the sender.
Sometimes, short messages (text messages or SMS) will not be delivered to the recipient if the message is more than 160 characters in length. This is due to the technology used to send the message, so it is advisable to keep the message brief.
What to Do If You Receive a Message Blocked Message
If you receive a Message Blocked message from Verizon, there are a few steps you can take to try and have your message delivered:
- Check that the recipient’s number is registered in your contact list.
- If the number is not registered, try sending the message again.
- Shorten the message by using fewer characters.
If the message still does not go through, then it is likely that the recipient has blocked messages from the domain you are using. In this case, you should try sending the message from another account.
If this does not work, then you may need to contact the recipient directly to let them know that you are trying to contact them. This is the only sure way to know if you have been blocked from sending a message.
