Blocking a non AT&T iPhone User

If I block a Verizon iPhone from texting my AT&T iPhone, will they know I blocked them? This person is annoyingly persistent and I think that if she knew I blocked her that she would try using a different phone or getting another number just to continue texting me.

If the person is not using AT&T, they will not receive any feedback stating that their message was blocked.

Blocked Text Messages

Text messages will be blocked and AT&T subscribers will receive the auto-reply text message: The wireless subscriber you are trying to reach is not accepting incoming messages at this time if:

  • The number is on the Smart Limits subscriber's blocked list.
  • The Smart Limits subscriber has reached the text message limit.
  • The text message was sent to the Smart Limits subscriber during a Time of Day restriction period. Note: Text messages are not delivered when the time restriction is lifted.

If the sending number is not an AT&T subscriber, they will not be notified that the text message was not delivered.
