Social media, like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok, have greatly changed our lives. It allows us to communicate and connect with people from around the world. We can share our thoughts and experiences and debate our passions conveniently. Social media brings people together from different places and backgrounds. But it is not all good. The constant flow of carefully chosen images can make us feel inadequate. For example, on Instagram and Pinterest, we see endless images which have been worked on beyond perfection. This can lead to many self-image issues, especially among teenagers.
We also seek approval through likes, and it’s hard to tell our online and offline lives apart. The number of likes on our online posts seems to be our only source of validation, which is extremely unhealthy and dangerous.
While it can be better described as a social media messaging service, WhatsApp is the perfect example of networking while keeping it intimate and non-stressful. In today’s blog, we will discuss if someone can still call/message you on your smartphone after you’ve blocked them on WhatsApp.
If You Block Someone on WhatsApp Can They Still Call or Message You on Phone?
Let’s answer your question: if you block someone on WhatsApp, will they still be able to call and message you on your phone? The answer is yes, they will. This is because WhatsApp is just a social media platform. Even if you block them there, they still have your phone number, which they can use to contact you.
Still, you don’t have anything to worry about. All smartphone operating systems offer the option to block a contact. You can also block a contact to prevent them from being able to send SMSs to you.
Let’s backtrack and get to the part where you block someone on WhatsApp. Firstly, why did you block someone on WhatsApp? This question is important in discovering if you want them to be unable to call or send you an SMS.
You see, nowadays, there are two reasons why people block someone on WhatsApp. Reason one is that the blocked person did something to instigate that behavior, or the blocker was just angry at them, which is just as valid.
The second reason is to display annoyance or anger, but not long-term. When people block someone for this reason, they just want the other person to know they are angry. Eventually, They will unblock them once they’re through this rough patch.
While the latter alternative doesn’t seem particularly healthy, it is what it is. What we need to focus on is what this means in this situation.
So, if you block them because you’re done with them and do not wish them to ever contact you, you must block their number everywhere. If you’ve just bought a new smartphone and cannot figure out how to block a contact and how to block someone from sending SMSs, look it up on Google.
Regardless of how new or old your model might be, you’ll find the right process to follow there. Now, if you’re someone from the second category, you already know what you will do.
