Have you ever had some experience that you sent an iMessage to someone but the response was never returned? Have you suspected that you were in the blacklists on your friend's iMessage? If you have any doubts whatsoever, the methods given in this post will show how to tell if someone blocked you on iMessage.
Some users may have little idea on how to activate iMessages, we'll show you how to get it started with ease.
Step 1. Open up Settings from the iPhone home screen.
Step 2. Scroll down to select the Messages option and enable iMessage. You'll be able to send and receive messages using WiFi instead of cellular data.
This way is practicable if you have a MacBook in hand. Send an iMessage the your friend via iPhone and Mac at the same time. Normally, the indication icon of "delivered" will appear after the successfully sending on iPhone. However, if your have been blocked on iMessage, the read receipt or delivered will never appear on MacBook.
If the iMessage has been sent successfully, the Bubble Color of this message shall be blue. You may be blocked if no response has been sent to you and the Bubble Color turns to be green. Yet, this option is not absolutely sure. Sometimes, iMessage will be resorted to message due to the network error. What you can do is to consistently send iMessages to check whether the bubble colors continually turning to green.
The 3rd option is to call the person whom you suspect has blocked you on iMessage. If he or she has blocked you on iMessage, your phone number may be in his or her blacklist as well. Just give the person a call, if you're through but get the notification that you are sent to voicemail, you are absolutely blocked. On the other hand, it can't be defined if you don't get through but goes straight to voicemail.
One more chance to verify whether your friend has blocked you on iMessage is to check the conversation between you and your friend. Go to the Message App on your iPhone to find the conversation information, check whether the read receipt still exist below the last sent message. Generally, the default setting will not disappear unless the person has blocked you. Thus this option could also be a good choice for the verify.
If the person has another number, you can send him/her another iMessage at different number.
