Wrapping it up

As you can see, you have a few ways to unblock that number or person that you blocked for whatever reason. Hopefully this time around, they’ll remain on your unblocked list but if not, blocking them again is just a couple of taps away.

Is call blocking something you do with people you know or do you reserve it just for those unknown numbers or known solicitors?
