How do I know if my number is being blocked?

HI everyone, I'm new here. Any how I was wondering if there was a way to tell if my number was being blocked?

My long distance girlfriend has been very busy and I've sent her about a dozen text messages in the last week they all say she received them.

I was just wondering if my texts can still say received if my number is blocked?

Do I have to call her to see if she blocked me?

She's not the kind of person to just block someone without saying bye first.

Helpful to know what phone you have, and what phone she has.

Big difference in an Android Device versus An iOS Apple device.

If the message says sent, it does not mean it was received. It means sent. However most times you receive an error message when they don't send. Now as far as receiving well you really don't know unless you ask her or do a text check to each other

What I like about my iphones is the ability to see it say delivered and I can see my friend typing a reply on his iPhone. On my wife's LG G2 I have seen a red exclamation point at times when she sends me a text which is not imessage but a SMS/MMS/text on other occasions I receive her messages or crazy as it may seem end up in my email inbox.

Good Luck
