💡Use VPN

In some countries, Telegram imposes strict restrictions on some channels. You can use a VPN to set your location to another region that doesn't have any restrictions. Then you can successfully fix the error and remove the Telegram channel membership limit.

💡Try other devices

Sometimes, switching to a different device can fix the "This channel is blocked" error in Telegram because some apps can't work properly on a certain operating system. So, if you encounter this error on your iOS device, you can use it on your Android device and vice versa.

Fix "Too Many Communities" error in Telegram

If you wanted to join a Telegram channel and encountered the error "You have reached the limit" or "Too many communities", you should know that the number of your Telegram channels and groups has exceeded 500. Each user can only join 500 channels on Telegram.

Therefore, if you already have joined 500 channels on Telegram, you will encounter the "Too many communities" error.

Don’t use unofficial Telegram apps

As you know, today there are a large number of unofficial versions of Telegram with different facilities and features, all of which are advertised with strange names. If you use unofficial versions of Telegram, you will probably face problems when joining Telegram channels. It is highly recommended to install the original version of Telegram and download the app from trusted sources.
