How to View a List of All Blocked Phone Numbers on Your Android

Key Takeaways

  • Blocking numbers on Android prevents unwanted calls and texts from reaching you
  • You can view your list of blocked numbers in the Phone app or Google’s Phone app settings
  • Unblocking numbers is just as easy if you want to start receiving calls/texts from them again

Android provides a built-in call blocking feature that lets you easily block unwanted phone numbers to avoid spam calls, harassment, or other nuisances. Once a number is blocked, you won’t receive any calls or texts from that number. But what if you want to review the list of numbers you’ve blocked or unblock a particular number? This guide will show you how to view all blocked phone numbers on your Android device.

Viewing Blocked Numbers in the Phone App

Many Android phones come with the Google Phone app pre-installed. If your phone uses this app, here’s how to view your list of blocked numbers:

  1. Open the Phone app
  2. Tap the three-dot menu icon in the top right
  3. Select “Settings” > “Blocked numbers”
  4. You’ll see a list of all blocked phone numbers

The blocked numbers list shows the number, name (if available), and when you blocked it. You can unblock a number by tapping the X icon next to it.

Viewing in Your Phone’s Call Settings

If your Android phone doesn’t use the Google Phone app, don’t worry – you can still view blocked numbers through your phone’s call settings menu. The steps may vary slightly by device, but generally:

  1. Open the Phone app
  2. Go to Settings (this may be in the menu or via your phone’s main Settings app)
  3. Select “Call settings” or “Blocked numbers”
  4. View the list of blocked phone numbers

From this blocked numbers list, you can tap on entries to unblock them if needed.

Viewing Blocked Numbers from Your Google Account

Another way to view blocked numbers on Android is through your Google account. This is particularly useful if you’ve blocked numbers across multiple Android devices.

  1. Open a web browser and go to https://contacts.google.com
  2. Sign in with your Google account
  3. Click “Other contacts” in the left menu
  4. Select the “Blocked” view to see all blocked numbers

This list syncs across your Android devices using the same Google account. You can unblock numbers here as well.

Unblocking Phone Numbers

If you need to unblock a number, it’s very simple – just follow the steps above to view your blocked numbers list, then tap the X or unblock icon next to the number you want to unblock. The number will be immediately removed from the blocked list.

You can also unblock numbers through your Android phone’s call log or messaging app. Just view the call/message details for the blocked number and tap “Unblock” if that option is available.

Now that you know how to view and manage your list of blocked numbers, you may want to block some new numbers going forward. Most Android phones let you easily block numbers:

  • From the Phone app, view call details and select “Block number”
  • In the Messaging app, view message details and block the sender
  • Add numbers directly to the blocked list in your Phone app settings

Blocking numbers helps cut down on unwanted calls and texts, giving you more control over your communications. Just be sure to periodically review your blocked numbers list in case you need to unblock any of them down the road.
