Re: Getting rid of blocked callers

Carolyn Arnold

On the iPhone, there is an option, I think, right after you flick to Block this Caller, and you double tap on Unblock. I see no reason to fool with it, since I have not blocked individuals. Thank heavens that at this point in my life, I don't have that much tension between myself and any individual to bother with blocking.

I know that I'm late to this discussion but haven't been on the computer yet today. In answer to your question about blocked callers, to my knowledge, when you block someone, they will remain blocked until you unblock them. You can go into phone and I don't know the full process of doing this but you can see all of the people you have blocked when you click block calls and you can either leave them there or delete them. When you delete them, you can get text and calls from them again. Even when you do this, I doubt you would hear from them because depending on how long they have been blocked, they have probably given up trying to reach you. I have a list of blocked calls and I haven't deleted any. There is no need to. There is also no time limit of how long they will stay blocked. They will not unblock themselves. You will have to do that if you so wish. I hope I have helped with this.
Sorry, I am not tech savvy so I don't know all of the menus and detailed instructions because I don't do it that much. I just know it's there.

different such as if there is a llist of blocked callers, I don't
know. I don't have a smart phone; I have a feature phone and there is
no such list on it.

What i mean is, do the blocked callers remain available to be
unblocked, and accumulate into a list in storage, or does the
opportunity go away after a certain amount of time and is forgotten?

You can undelete them yourself but I see no reason a phone would
automatically unblock a caller after a certain time.

Is it possible to delete blocked callers, or do they go away after a
certain amount of time?
