If the notification “Delivered” or “Read” appears after you send the iMessage, then your number is not blocked. On the other hand, if you find there is no message delivery/read notification, it means that your number has been blocked.
Count the Number of Rings Before Voicemail
The second tip you can try on how to know if someone blocked your number is to count the number of rings before the voicemail you hear. This way, you can make a call to the suspected contact number. If you hear only one ring or even no ring at all, it indicates that your number has been blocked. You may try this tip for 3-4 days. If the result remains the same, the fact shows that your number has really been blocked.
Check Your Contact’s “Do Not Disturb Mode” Activation Status
If the previous tips do not work out, you may try the next tip that is checking your contact DND mode (Do Not Disturb) mode. The improved DND mode version allows the user to get free from any call so that he/she can’t respond to your call or message. When DND mode activates the autoreply and you receive the notification, it means your number is not blocked.

The next way on how to know if someone blocked your number you can try is to use the alternative number to make a call to the suspected number. This way, you may use other numbers to call the suspected number. If you hear some more rings before the voicemail, you must be pretty sure that your number has been blocked. On the other hand, when you hear no ring, you may assume that the suspected number is not active. In this case, your number is not blocked.
