Communication over smartphones has become the go-to solution when it comes to sharing ideas, expressing feelings, or even collaborating on projects. Thanks to the plethora of apps in the market that specialize in communication, face to face meetings are becoming less common, especially in the corporate setup.

However, if there is a miscommunication or if you are experiencing a level of harassment or bullying through some contacts, the best way to shut them out is to block them.

Now, if the misunderstanding has been resolved and you feel you want to reconnect with the contact, the first thing you need to do is to unblock the contact.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to unblock a number on your Android smartphone.
