To unblock someone's telephone number, contact your telephone service provider, inquire about unblocking procedures and provide the number you would like to unblock. Verizon provides online tools for blocking and unblocking specific numbers.

  1. Contact your service provider

    Call your telephone service provider. Your provider may have a short code that you can dial from your telephone to access customer support directly.

  2. Inquire about unblocking

    Ask your customer support agent for the procedure to unblock a specific number. Your provider may give you the option to do this directly through your customer support agent or through an online tool.

  3. Provide the telephone number

    Follow your agent's instructions to submit the number you wish to unblock.
