Being blocked is one of the reasons that your messages may not be delivered to another user. This article shows you how to determine if another user blocked you or if you aren’t getting a response.
Does it say “delivered” if you are blocked?
To nip this in the bud, it is important to point out that if the other user blocks your messages, your message will not be delivered.
Your messages won’t make it all the way to their device, and Apple doesn’t play games by showing the message as it was delivered.
Sending a letter to another person’s mailbox is similar to sending a physical letter. If they block your letter, it will never make its way into their mailbox, and it will fail to deliver.
This is what causes your blocked messages to end up not being delivered.
Reasons were said when it was blocked.
misunderstandings happen when the account is blocked and the message is perceived as delivered. It’s more likely that one of the following occurred.
The account was never closed down.
Before the account was blocked a message was sent.
The other person was unblocked at that exact moment.
It’s important to keep in mind that failed delivery errors don’t always indicate the iMessage was blocked, and you should consider other options first.
There are reasons why it fails to deliver iMessage.
When your iMessage fails to deliver, you should receive a notification and an error status underneath your message. Under the message, the report states that it was not delivered.
If the problem persists, you can try to resend the message to make sure it wasn’t a momentary error, but before you assume the other party blocked you.
The recipient is disabled on their device.
Most people who use iMessage prefer to keep their receipts and blue messages, but some choose to not use iMessage on their devices.
When iMessage is not available, the feature to send or receive a text may not be turned on by the recipients.
Some users don’t use this feature, or they don’t have a texting plan that will allow them to send and receive text messages.
The iMessage you send will not work in these cases.
It is possible to confirm this by having another friend send a message to the same person.
Network issues are related.
Keep in mind that iMessage requires a network connection to send messages. The message can fail to deliver if both of you have network issues.
Try to resend the message to make sure there wasn’t a hiccup, then check other network-reliant tasks on your phone. If you have a steady connection, chances are they have network issues or the recipient blocks your messages.
Is it possible that iMessages turn green when they are blocked?
Messages do not turn green when they are blocked. The message throws up a “Not Delivered” error.
In most cases, the recipient just turned off their iMessage features, when the service is unavailable.
If you contact the individual for the first time and you don’t know what type of device they have, there is a good chance they will message you from a non-iOS device.
You would receive green messages from other manufacturers on their phones.
If your number is blocked, your text messages to green message recipients will say ‘Sent’.
After Unblocking, will the recipient receive blocked messages?
The recipient must get the message if it fails to deliver, including blocked iMessages.
It doesn’t matter how many messages have been blocked. The nature of the messages, or how close to the blocked time you sent them. When the recipient is open to receive your messages, they must fall into a window.
Once the messages fail to deliver, they will not send again until you tell them to.
It is possible that the recipient unblocks you, and you will not know until they tell you or you discover your messages have been delivered.
Someone is blocking you on your phone.
you are willing to call the other user, you can find out whether or not they have blocked you.
If your calls are blocked or your recipient has bad service, you will reach their voicemail immediately.
If you combine this with other signs, such as the “Not Delivered” error, you can create a strong case that points towards the user blocking you.
In many cases, the message sent before your message is blocked will say delivered.
Misconceptions can happen.
If someone’s phone is in “Do Not Disturb” mode, automated responses may pop up, but they don’t mean the other user has blocked you.
When an automated message states that you have been blocked, it is drafted by the user.
When the other user has turned off iMessage, green messages mean that your message is sent as an SMS.
It is not easy to come to terms with the idea of someone blocking you on iMessage, but there are other situations to consider before ending up there.
Even if your messages are not delivered, this can be a sign that other scenarios do not involve blocking your account.
If you try some of the methods above, you can confirm if your iMessages are blocked and move forward from that knowledge.
