Once you have located the message, touch and hold it until a menu apears with several options. Tap on the ‘Report Junk’ option in order to report the sender as a spammer and permanently delete the message from your device. The sender’s information and the message will be sent to Apple for review. You can also choose to delete the message without reporting it as junk by tapping ‘Delete’ instead of ‘Report Junk’.

No Longer Able to Block Numbers on iPhone

It is possible that you may have inadvertently changed settings on your phone or made a change in the iOS system settings that has prevented you from blocking numbers. It is also possible that a third-party app you are using to block numbers may be causing the issue. Additionally, it could be an issue with your carrier settings, so it would be worth checking tose as well. Lastly, restarting your iPhone and updating it to the latest version of iOS can help to resolve any issues with the operating system that could be preventing the blocking of numbers.

Can Blocked Contacts Still Text You?

Yes, someone can still text you if you block them. Even though the messages won’t show up on your phone, the sender will still be able to send them and will see the messages as sent. The sender won’t know that they’ve been blocked, so they may continue to try and contact you.

The Challenges of Blocking Text Numbers

There could be several reasons why you are unable to block a text number. It could be that the app you are using does not have a blocking feature, or the feature might not be enabled in the settings. It is also possible that the number you are trying to block has been blocked by your carrier. If none of these options apply, it is best to contact your carrier for more information.
