Steps to Call Someone who has Blocked Your Number On iPhone
You may be surprised to know that the Call blocking feature on iPhone can be easily by-passed.
All that is required to get through the Call Blocking feature on iPhone is to Hide Your Caller ID on iPhone and make a Call to the person that has blocked your Phone Number.
Since your Caller ID is hidden, the iPhone of your Contact won’t be able to detect the incoming phone number and match it with the blocked number.
Follow the steps below to Call someone who has blocked your Number on iPhone.
1. Open Settings on your iPhone and tap on Phone.
2. On the Phone screen, tap on Show My Caller ID tab located under “Calls” section.
3. On the next screen, Toggle OFF the option for Show My caller ID (See image below)
After disabling Caller ID on your iPhone, simply make a Call to the person that has blocked your Phone Number.
As mentioned earlier, your Contact’s iPhone won’t be able to filter and block your Phone number this time (since your Caller ID is hidden).
Your call will easily by-pass the Call block and the iPhone of your Contact will start ringing.
After this point, everything depends on how your Contact responds to Calls from unknown numbers.
1. It is possible that your Contact might answer the call out of curiosity, providing you with an opportunity to explain the situation and convey your message.
2. It is also possible that your Contact might ignore the call, precisely because it is appearing to come from an unknown caller.
In case your Contact does not answer the calls from unknown numbers, try calling this Contact of yours using another phone. This way, your Contact will see a phone number and may decide to pick up the call.
