    If someone's blocked you on iMessage and you still message them, after they've unblocked you will there messages come through after like normal text messages do?

    If someone with an iphone blocks you, your phone will first send an imessage and then try to send it as a normal text. That is a good way to know if you are block. What normally would send as an imessage will send as a text (green). Obviously they will still not see it.

    If the person unblocks you it will send as an imessage not a text message. If you are texting someone that it usually sends as an imessage but sends as a green text there is a strong possibility you are still block.

    I've tried it with my friends phone I blocked myself on her phone which is also an iPhone. The iMessage still sent and it said delivered underneath but didn't get through to her phone. But we didn't check after when she unblocked me if the message did go through. im just wondering as I blocked someone who I didn't want to talk to but I'm afraid of unblocking them as I'm not sure if their iMessages will come through

    oh no, it will not come through. Messages that are sent while someone is blocked do not later come through once unblocked.

    Once you unblock them and they iMessage you, then you will receive it. I tend to block and unblock people often so that's how it works for me.

    My other friend who doesn't have an iPhone accidentally blocked me a few months back when she was drunk lol, and we didn't know as I was sending her messages but they weren't goinng through so the next time I saw her we were trying to figure it out and she did block me somehow but after she unblocked me all the messages I had sent to her came through, so is that just a text message thing that that happens with and not iMessages?

    That's a good question. I only have experience with iMessage. After unblocking a number, I never get the iMessages that were sent while blocked.

    What about if a message has been sent as a text in iMessage?

    Just to test it out, I unblocked a contact that's been blocked for at least six months and so far no text messages from that person.

    Yeah, I understand. I guess there's no way to be certain until you try it out lol.

    Why not just leave them blocked if you are worried old text will come through? Sounds like they need to stay blocked.

    I really think that there is no way they will come through though.
