Hi there,

All blocks are two-way, meaning since you have blocked a number from contacting you, you will also be unable to contact that number.

So if you try to send a text to a blocked number the message simply will not go through and the person on the other end will not be notified in any way.

I blocked a phone number using #Stop but messages are still coming through. Are there additional actions i can take or should I try to enter #Stop again?

Hi Rashaad,

Blocking a number can take up to half an hour to go through. There are multiple ways to block a number via TextNow. You can find them out at this article here!

Hi there,

Unfortunately there is no way to tell if someone has blocked you.
