Questions and Answers

I need to delete the contacts already blocked from my blocked contact list so that I do not have to keep seeing them there. Please advice how?

Deleting contacts on already blocked list of contacts

To delete a contact completely, delete it from your address book. However, this will allow the person to send you messages. If you do not want that, you will have to keep the person or his or her number in the blocked list.

How do I block someone whom I blocked in WhatsApp from the entire phone?

Details, Someone started chatting with me in WhatsApp. I recognized a scammer. So I blocked them. Tonight I am sending a photo to someone on messaging and the contact had a box that said he was also to receive the photo. So I exit it out and it kept on coming back. I could not then send my photo.
