Using the Phone App
First, open your iPhone and locate the “Phone” app on your home screen. Next, in the Phone app, tap on the “Contacts” tab located at the bottom of the screen.
At this point, find and tap on the contact you’d like to unblock. On the contact details page, tap on the “Unblock this Caller” option. The contact will be removed from your blocked list, and they will be able to call or message you as before.
Using the Settings App
Alternatively, you can also unblock them in Settings. To do so, go to “Settings”>”Phone”>”Blocked contacts”.
You will see a list of all the contacts and phone numbers you have blocked on your iPhone. To unblock a contact, tap on “Edit” then swipe left on the contact/number you’d like to unblock. Tap on “Unblock” from the menu that appears.
The contact will be removed from your blocked list, allowing them to contact you via calls, messages, or FaceTime. Remember that unblocking a contact allows them to reach out to you again, so consider your decision carefully.
