However, you are intent on giving them a call despite the fact that your number has been blacklisted. Consider the reasons why the other person blocked your number before moving further. Check to see that you won’t be disturbing anybody else or putting yourself in a position where you may be charged with harassment. Continue reading for a few methods to get around the hold time if your call is warranted, and thank you for your patience! How To Contact Someone Who Blocked You?
When You Make a Call From Your Own Phone
Disguise your caller ID.
This prevents the phone that is receiving the call from identifying the caller. Your ID will be marked as “Hidden,” and your phone number will not be shown anywhere.
Go to the Settings app on your iOS (iPhone) device if you want to hide your caller ID. Next, choose “Show My Caller ID” by navigating to the “Phone” section of the settings menu on your device. After that, move the switch until it is in the “Off” position.
On an Android device, caller ID can be accessed by navigating to Settings > Call Settings > Additional Settings > Caller ID. Then, pick the option to Hide the Number. Your calls will not be traced, and you will be able to avoid being placed on the banned list.
Your phone call will seem to have come from a “unknown” or “private” number if you enter this code before making a call. Enter the code before the number that you are calling, such as *67-408-221-XXXX. For example, this would look like this: It is possible that this will function on mobile phones and landline phones in homes, but it is not guaranteed to operate on business phones.
You can get a random phone number by downloading an app that does that.
If you have a smartphone, you may choose from a variety of different applications that provide free downloads and will produce a random phone number for you to use. You can use this number to send texts and make calls inside the app, and it’s possible that you can even use it to make calls to others who don’t have the program installed on their devices. This is often a viable approach for phoning a person who has banned your number from receiving calls from your number.
One of the benefits of using this approach is that it also generates the area code in a random fashion. Because of this, the individual will not have any reason to question where the call is originating from.
Call a landline.
The ability to block numbers is often unavailable on land-based home phones. If you have the person’s home phone number, give them a call and see what happens!
Swap out your phone number.
Make sure you change your phone number by contacting your service provider and asking about it. You may be required to make a small payment. Unless you want to get a new phone in the near future, this may not be the simplest option to go with. Keep in mind that if you offer this individual a cause to block your new number, they always have the option to do so even if you change your number.
Calling From a Different Phone
Make use of the public telephones.
Calling this individual from a number that they have not banned is perhaps the easiest answer there is to this problem. They won’t be prepared for it to be you on the other end of the call if you do it this way. Even if they hang up on you, you should at least pass the call-block screening. If they hang up, it’s not your fault. Be careful that this strategy will probably only work once or twice before the individual quits picking up the phone when it rings with an unknown number.
If there are payphones in your neighborhood, use them to make a call that will be difficult to track back to you.
Make the call from the room you’re staying in at the hotel, once you’ve checked in.
Make use of a phone at your place of employment or at school. Make the request to use the landline while you are at a store or restaurant.
Make the request to use the phone of a buddy.
Explain the scenario to a friend, and then inquire as to whether or not it is OK to use her personal phone to get in touch with this individual. Take care not to damage your friend’s property, and never make someone feel uncomfortable or intimidated by calling them on the phone. You run the risk of making your buddy an accessory to the crime if you escalate the matter further by utilizing his or her phone.
In the same way as with public phones, if you use the same friend’s phone again and over again to contact someone who has blocked your number, the person who has banned your number will probably cease taking calls from that number. It’s even possible that they’ll ban your friend’s phone number.
Think about communicating via a third party.
If you think the other person would hang up as soon as they hear your voice, you should write your friends and family members a script and ask them to take the call in your place. It is beneficial if the proxy is a friend of both parties; this ensures that the blocker may put their faith in the proxy. It’s possible that this is a decent approach to communicate what you need to say without the blocker feeling immediately threatened by what you’re saying. Ensure that this is understood right away while reading the script.
Take, for instance: “Hey, Allie.
This is Joe McAdams phoning on behalf of Billy, and we appreciate you taking our call. I just wanted to quickly relay some information to you before letting you go on with the rest of your day. He tells you to “[insert your message here].” I’m sorry to be such a hassle!”
You also have the option of using a voice changer to conceal your identity. If, on the other hand, the person has blocked your number, there is a significant possibility that there is some kind of history between you two, and that they will easily recognize you.
Take a moment to think about calling. There was undoubtedly a good reason for this individual to block you. If you harass the individual in any way, the situation is just going to become worse, so make sure you steer clear of doing that. Take some time to think about the “why.” Ask yourself whether this call will genuinely resolve anything practical, or if it’s merely a means for you to make your presence known, and base your decision on the answer to that question.
Be considerate. You need to give this individual some space if they are telling you that you are making them feel uncomfortable. Things work themselves out in their own time, but if we push the issue too far, we could eliminate the likelihood that they will work themselves out.
Make a Phone Call to the Person Who Blocked Your Number
Be conscious of the repercussions of your actions.
If you phone someone who has made it clear they do not want to be contacted, it is possible that they will have grounds for taking legal action against you. If it occurs often enough, it may be considered harassing behavior. This individual has the ability to get a restraining order against you, which will prevent you from having any contact with them at all. Think about whether or not making just this one phone call is worth your time.
Caller ID spoofing was deemed a criminal by the Caller ID Act of 2009, which made it illegal to employ the practice with the intent to hurt or deceive another person. If you utilize a service that may hide or alter the way that your phone number is displayed, you should exercise extreme caution on how you put this capacity to use.
Find an alternative route.
Think about why you need to get in touch with this individual and whether or not you can satisfy this need in a manner that is less intrusive for them. If the person you want to talk with over the phone views the thought of doing so as an invasion of their personal space, calling them and saying what you need to say may not be the most effective strategy. However, calling someone and saying what you need to say might be extremely enticing.
Try writing a letter or sending an email to the individual in issue if all you need to do is gain closure and convey how you feel about the situation. If the individual has more time to read and consider how to react to what you have said, it is possible that they may feel less frightened.
Reach out to people who are already acquainted with one another or get in touch with the authorities if the situation is urgent and you really need to get in touch with or locate someone. Find an impartial third party who may be able to put you in touch with this individual.
