      It should be an open topic unless specified only for whoever is intended. Otherwise it should be open to anyone with his/her personal opinion.

  • shabaz

    Someone block me on whatsapp. How can I unblock . Above step are used but noworking plz help

    • Harry Weaver

      It seems like it is up to the moderator or whoever started the channel. If they don’t like the comment, they block you. Did me on two channels. If they can’t take opposite side comments, then don’t comment at all and kill the channel.

  • Monica Vijay

    does it work for whatsapp in java phones?

  • Samanthi Buter

    Please tell me.. does this steps work for G plus too…

  • Kaci

    Hi is there any other way of doing this with the newly updated version? As I’ve tried the above and it hasn’t worked

    • Harry Weaver

      They have it all fixed so it’s no longer possible to unblock from an entire group. It’s the fanatical leftist crew, seems the only ones who do it. Seems they can’t take the heat from what they post. Like me posting “What does GAY stand for? ” Got Aids Yet” blocked as spam.

  • Sarah Lizzie Edmondson

    I followed the above steps and it did not work 🙁 please help

    • prachi

      This steps is not working so suggest ti unblocked from friend account

  • Ravi

    Hi Harsh,
    I think it worked for me. I switched from my old mobile to new one. I was blocked on old mobile and when register with same on new device, i am unblocked and i am able to see the status and pic of the other person who blocked me.

    My whatsapp version is 2.11.432 on my new mobile. is this the latest one…?? If so, does it work only when switching between devices or also with the steps you provided above…???

    And one more question is, when we are blocked on other person’s mobile they will see the option to ‘UNBLOCK’ whenever they open our window. If we unblock ourselves using the above steps, will they still see that ‘UNBLOCK’ option or not…???

    • Hie Ravi,

      First of all thanks for stopping by and adding your valuable comment. Lets get to the point, YES its is possible to get unblocked if your are changing your device and hence it worked in your case. still there are no steps to unblock oneself using same device ( we will discover soon ) and the Whatsapp version you using is the latest one, no worries. And UNBLOCK option will not available on others account as you are not blocked now. Hope you got your answer, ping back if any query ,

      Thanks again. Do subscribe us for more Whatsapp updates

  • anshuman

    Hi Harsh sir,
    Please tell me how to see someone’s dp when i m not in his contact list.. please help me sir

  • Sofia

    Hi, like the rest… I’m desperate to be unblocked on whatsapp, since this method doesn’t work with the lastest version of whatsapp, my question is if there’s any way to unistall the whatsapp updates, go back to an older version, and try this method again to see if it works?

  • Sofia

    Also, another question: could it be possible that this doesn’t work because your number is linked to the gmail installed and used to go to play store and download whatsapp? What happens if I do all the steps but after restasting my phone I set up a new gmail address?

  • Venkat Prem

    my friend unsaved my number from her phone so i could not see her dp,status,last seen…will i have any way to see her dp and other things..if so please tell me

  • ravi kumar

    my friend unsaved my number from her phone so i could not see her dp status last seen in whatsapp.will i have any way to see her dp and other things.if so please tell me

  • urghhhh

    i changed my sim card or my iphone so i have a different number than my original urghhhh

  • Ash

    Hi, on my iPhone, I can definitely see a phone book contact’s “last seen status” as a certain date/time (e.g. Monday at 2.34pm). However this date/time has NOT changed for a few days. This is very strange because I know that this person uses Whatsapp all the time!

    I am NOT in their phone book contact list. IF they suddenly (after Monday 2.34pm) changed their “last seen status” to be visible by phonebook contacts only, would this explain why I can only see that frozen status of Monday at 2.34pm?

    Please help – thanks.

  • Chester Kong

      Deleting ur whatsapp account and Un installing process is not working for latest version of whatsapp.

      So kindly try this method,

      Sent some message to the blocked person continually. At least sent minimum 20 messages and the total 20 messages should contain more than 1500 words.
      And this must done in the same day for sending above 20 messages with more than 1500 words.

      Plz try this and sent me the reply to my email id:

  • ÇøRtêz Múkūl

    It is not working i have done it but unable to unblock myself……what else can i do…..

  • shubh-chintak

    Yupp I’ve a trick to send messages to that person who block u but in this trick u cant unblock ur self but send him/her messages
    Create a WhatsApp chat group and set a dp and give a name whatever u want
    And add the person who u want to send messages or pics and start chatting with him/her

    Soo…. I’m not sure about that trick but it works on my windows phone

    Thank you

    • Anonymous Administer

      i think you cant add that person because you r blocked now.. do it (Add your blocked number {with whom do you want to chat} and yours,) with your friends phone and give admin to your number and remove your friends number(who created the group, its ur choose.) }and then you can send massages to her../him..,

  • Rups Mane

    no this has not worked for me

  • Natasha

    does this method work for version 2.11.16 or is it dependent on the version of whatsapp that the blocker has…

    Guise I have a best way to unblock yourself from someone whatsapp account…and that is ..1 first of all go to whatsapp and delete your account ..2 then create your account by your other phone number..3 then when the whatsapp will be opened go to settings and change your Number what it was before.
    Then you are unblocked and you can check it..

    It works guise☺☺

    uninstall app,reboot phone and and download app start from step 1 you

  • Harry Weaver

    It appears that the person moderating or the one who started the subject has not been fair in allowing persons to comment freely. And when no one has had their life threatened. It is honest to say what one would wish to happen if one was approached by a transgender in a ladies rest room, like my daughter, and what I would like to see happen to them, is absolutely the opinion of the individual. No direct threats were made.

  • Rubina John

    Heyy, I followed the above steps and I have not been unblocked from a number which I wwanted to.. can someone help me please?

  • Jessica

    I was blocked months ago on WhatsApp by someone. Then WhatsApp forced me to download the newest version (the update) but now I don’t think I’m blocked anymore. Does this mean installing the update of WhatsApp automatically unblocks me or does this mean the person manually unblocked me?
