How to Call Someone Who Blocked Your NumberJuly 27, 2023
To call someone who blocked your number, try to call using another number, hide your phone number when calling, or use an app to get a new number (virtual number). Before trying these methods, you can make sure that you are blocked. Look for any signs of behavior that might indicate that you have been blocked. For example, if they have suddenly stopped responding to your messages or have unfollowed you on social media, it could be an indication of being blocked.
How to Call Someone Who Blocked Your Number on iPhone, Android, and Whatsapp
Whether you’re using an iPhone, an Android phone, or even Whatsapp, there might be a way to bypass the block and reach out to the person you need to contact.
Hide Your Caller ID on iPhone
- Open Settings on your iPhone.
- Scroll down and select Phone.
- Tap on Show My Caller ID.
- Here you will see a switch, toggle it off to hide your Caller ID.
Note that some carriers may not allow you to hide your Caller ID. If you don’t see the “Show My Caller ID” option, this might be the case.
Hide Your Caller ID on Android Phone
Android devices can also hide your Caller ID, but the steps can vary a little because there are many different Android phones out there. Here’s a general guide on Samsung S22 Ultra:
- Open Phone Settings.
- Tap on the three-dot icon (Menu) on the top-right corner.
- Choose Settings.
- Look for the Supplementary Services section.
- Tap on Show your caller ID.
- Then select Never.
Important Note: When your Caller ID is off, the person you’re calling won’t see your number. Instead, they’ll see ‘Unknown’ or ‘No Caller ID’ on their screen.
Call With a Different Phone Number
If you happen to possess another phone number in your possession, then you have the option to utilize this alternative contact information. By using this method, you can effectively initiate a phone call without arousing suspicion from the individual who had previously blocked your initial number. The advantage of this approach lies in the fact that the recipient will be unaware of your true identity due to the substitution of your original number with the new one.
Using Apps To Call Someone Who Blocked You
There are apps available that can provide you with a temporary or virtual phone number. By using such an app, you can call the person who blocked your number from a different, unblocked number.
1. Google Voice
Google Voice is a service provided by Google that gives you a phone number to send and receive unlimited text messages and make and receive unlimited phone calls from pretty much any device. The best part is that this service is 100% free for anyone with a Google account who has an existing US phone number.
However, if you want to use Google Voice when you are out and about and not connected to Wi-Fi, you will need a data connection. This requires a regular cell phone plan, which can be a monthly contract or a prepaid plan. This will work overseas too.
Note: You can call to the US, Canada, and Puerto Rico for free from anywhere in the world, but costs for other international calls start at one cent per minute.
How to Get a Google Voice Number
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to get a free Google Voice number:
- Go to voice.google.com and click on “For Personal Use”. You can do this from your phone or a computer.
- On the next screen, you can choose your new Google Voice phone number. Local suggestions will initially be presented to you, but you can also search by area code or pull up a dial pad and search for a phrase.
- After choosing your number, you will need to use an existing phone number to receive a verification text message or a phone call. Type in your phone number, click on “Send Code”, and within a few seconds, you’ll receive the verification text.
- Type in the verification code, click “Verify”, and then you will see the confirmation that your phone number has been successfully linked to your account. It will ring whenever somebody calls your Google Voice number.
After setting up your Google Voice number, you are taken to your Google Voice dashboard where you can:
- Make and receive phone calls
- Send and receive text messages
- Check your voicemail
In your settings, you can change your phone number at any time for a ten-dollar fee. Also in settings, you will see all of the devices where you have signed in and any additional numbers that you have linked.
Burner apps are a second option to consider. These applications provide temporary, disposable phone numbers that can be used to place calls or send texts.
2. 2ndLine – Second Phone Number
The app “Second Line” offers free phone numbers, mainly for the US and Canada. If “Second Line” is not available in your country, use a VPN (e.g., Proton VPN) to connect to a US server before downloading the app. Sign up for “Second Line” using your email and a password, select a US area code, and get your free US phone number for calls and texts. Making calls and sending texts within the US and Canada is unlimited and free, but there are ads in the app that can be removed with the premium version.
2. Virtual SIM
Virtual SIM empowers you with a trial FREE US MOBILE NUMBER for one day upon downloading the app, which can be registered on multiple social networks, opening doors to a myriad of possibilities. The app offers a wide range of real mobile and landline numbers from numerous countries, ensuring that you stay connected with your desired locales with ease.
Dingtone allows you to get a free phone number from anywhere in the world without the need for a VPN. To get the free phone number, you need to verify your email address and can use it for calls, texts, and receiving OTPs or verification codes.

Hide Your Phone Number Using Code
In the US, you can try dialing *67 before the phone number you want to call. This code blocks your caller ID for the specific call. For example, *67 2125551212. Each country has a different code to hide caller ID, you should find a code that works in your country.
