When you block a phone number on your iPhone, it will no longer alert you when they try to call you. You can also no longer receive calls, texts, and FaceTime from them. But how do you know if they are still trying to contact you?
You can see missed calls from blocked numbers on Android, but not iPhone.
Luckily, there is an easy way to track all your call history, regardless of whether you use Android or Apple’s iOS.
How to See Blocked Calls on iPhone
If you have recently received a call from a blocked number, your phone will automatically send it straight to voicemail. This is the only way you can see that someone has tried to call you, but it will never appear on your call history.
You can easily check this by logging in to the Phone app and opening your recents tab. Then, you can view all the contacts that have called you and their call logs.
Now, if you notice that there is a call from an unknown number, it means the person has attempted to reach you but was unsuccessful. That’s because iOS blocks all callers who haven’t left a voicemail message for you.
However, you can find out if someone tried to contact you on their iPhone by opening the Phone app, and looking at your call logs. These call logs include all incoming and outgoing calls, and they can help you identify if someone is trying to call you.
When you’re on the phone with a blocked number, your calls will show up in red. That means you’ve missed them. The other calls in the phone logs will look like regular ones with information about when you received them and where they were coming from.
To make it easier to find a particular call, you can tap the arrow next to any caller’s name in your call log and then select “Blocked.” This will reveal their caller ID.
Then, you can scroll through your call logs to find the specific call that you’re interested in. From here, you can open the call details and see the exact time of the call.
In some cases, you can even find a caller’s identity by looking at their email address. If you’re concerned that someone may be stalking you, this can be an excellent way to discover their identity and locate where they live.
You can also find out if a caller has been trying to reach you by opening up your text messages. If they haven’t been in your contact list, you can filter them out by turning on the Filter Unknown Senders option under Messages.
Once you’ve done that, your text messages will only contain calls and messages from people who are in your contacts. That’s the best way to keep your phone ringing and text messages spam free, but it does require a little work.
Alternatively, you can find out who a blocked number is by calling your network operator’s customer service center. If you have a prepaid phone plan with your carrier, you can call them directly to request to see your call logs. The network operator will be able to give you the caller’s IMEI number, and from there, you can check their history.
