How to send messages to someone that blocked you on Telegram

When someone blocks you on Telegram, it's like they have created a big wall between you and themselves on this messenger. Any message you send them disappears and they will never receive it!

And to be clear, you won't get any notifications telling you that your messages have not been delivered. So, it might seem like they're just ignoring you, but in reality, they can't see what you've sent.

Remember that blocking only affects your communication through Telegram. If you have other ways to talk to that person, such as using a phone call, texting, or another messaging app, your messages may still reach them. This block only applies to Telegram, not all ways to contact them.

Also you can delete your Telegram account and create a new account to be able to text the person that has blocked you.
