How do you text someone who has blocked you? Perhaps you find yourself in a position where someone has blocked you, but you really need to get hold of them. How to you get through to them? And will they receive your text message if you send one?
Being blocked doesn’t necessarily mean you can no longer make contact. There are a few ways around this. You can start by changing your contact number. If the person has blocked you WhatsApp, you always can start a new account. Text the person using this new account. You can also experiment with other texting apps available on Android or iPhone.
