How To Block Group Chat On Iphone 1

Inability to Leave Group Chat on iPhone

Unfortunately, if someoe in the group chat does not have iMessage enabled or is not running the latest version of iOS, it can prevent you from leaving the conversation. As a workaround, you can try deleting the message or muting notifications by selecting “Hide Alerts.”

Blocking Unwanted Group Texts on an iPhone

To block unwanted group texts on your iPhone, you first need to open the Messages app, then tap on the group thread you'd like to block. Next, tap the group's icons at the top of the thread. On iOS 14 or earlier, tap the group icons at the top, then tap the Info button. Scroll down and select Block this Caller. This will prevent any future messages from being sent to you from this group thread.

Blocking a Group Chat Completely

To completely block a group chat, you need to open the group chat and tap on the downward arrowhead icon near the names/phone numbers in the top bar. Then, tap on the three small dots in the top right corner and select Blocklist from the pop-up submenu. This will block all incoming messages from this particlar group text and will also prevent you from receiving notifications when someone sends a message in that group.

Leaving Group Chats on iMessage

It sounds like you're trying to leave a group chat on iMessage, but it isn't working. This could be because one or more of the participants in the group chat are not using Apple devices and don't have iMessage enabled. Since iMessage is only available for Apple products, group chats require everyone in the conversation to use an Apple device. So if someone isn't using an Apple device, you won't be able to leave the group chat.

Blocking Random Group Texts

To block random group texts, you'll need to open the message thread and tap the three-dot menu in the upper right corner. From there, select “Details” from the drop-down menu. On the details page, scroll down and look for an option to “Block & report spam”. Tap this and a pop-up will appear asking if you want to both block and report the number. Select ‘yes' to confirm that you want to block the group text.

Can a Blocked Number Send Messages in a Group Chat?

Yes, a blocked number can still text you in a group chat. Even if you have blocked the number, they will still be able to send messages to you in the group chat and they will appear to other members of the group. However, you won't receive any notifications from this particular person and their messages won't appear in your individual chat with them.
