How to Know if Someone Blocked your Number

The message you’ve heard during a call varies with different carriers, so don’t be worry about it. Most of the times, we found the message “Busy or Waiting”. There are so many factors like Blacklist, Call on Waiting, Call divert, Do Not Disturb, and Voicemail, which produces this situation. Let’s dive into the process & find an evidence.

Sign 1: Busy All the Time

If the message seems like, Busy or Fast Busy then there is no need to think that you aren’t blocked. When someone blocks you, the voicemail will tell you, the user you are calling is speaking to someone else or busy. This may seem when the person adds your number to the Blacklist. Almost, every phone has this feature, for some reason if the phone not supports this feature, then you can easily install the third-party app on your phone to add anyone’s number in the blacklist.

If you still want to check or unsure about this, then you can easily catch up the result by calling the same person but from a different number.

Sign 2: Count the Rings

While calling count the number of rings, during the call. If you listen to 3-4 rings while calling and then transfer your call to the voicemail. This thing happens sometimes due to the call drop problem or with other network issues. But, If you listen to only 1 ring and sends you to voicemail then you’re blocked.

We know the phones are now very much advanced and come with some amazing features like Do Not Disturb (which comes with more enhancements with Android 9.0 Pie). If the user has turned on the DND on their phone, then also it sends your call after 3-4 rings to the voicemail.

Sign 3: Annoying Messages (Alerts!)

If you get rare messages you haven’t well-known about it, then most probably you’ve blocked. Talking about the messages, then there are a lot of messages, it varies from the cellular network. But some of the most famous messages are:

  • The person you are calling is unavailable.
  • The number you are calling is out of coverage area.
  • The person you are calling is not accepting calls right now.

There are a lot of situations, while the network coverage is not strong, like the natural disaster and the area where the network is not available then you’ll face the same situation.
