Does blocking a contract from sending you regular text message's

also block them from sending you MMS Message Text's/ Picture Message Text's?

Or do you still get the  MMS Message Text's/Picture Message Text's that they send you?

I possibly had a similar situation with a group MMS message. As best as the VZW rep and I determined, I partially received the message from the blocked number because of the replies to that message from the other recipients.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

2 People who have blocked me said that they still get the pictures that I send them in a text

but they don't get my regular texts that I send them.

We tested it out & that's what they told me so it made me wonder

XxCareBearxX we appreciate you and your business. Let’s dig a little deeper for you to figure out what is going on. I would like to clarify with you, you mentioned blocking a contract. Are you referring to a line that has the text messages blocked in general or do they have you blocked from communicating them?

They have me blocked from contacting me I think.

XxCareBearxX,


Thanks for your clarification. Let's make sure we get you all the information you'll need. If they have blocked your number from contacting them at the account level, nothing you send them directly will go through. It's possible that you can connect through third party messaging apps, but not through your services offered by Verizon.
