Unfortunately, there is no way to view blocked text messages on an iPhone. If you have blocked a contact, any messages sent from them will not appear in your Messages app inbox. The best advice is to reach out directly to the person you have blocked and ask them if they have been trying to send you any messages that may not be coming through. You can then unblock them if desired and view any missed messages.
How do I see blocked text messages?
Can you see if a blocked number has tried to text you?
Yes, you can see if a blocked number has tried to text you. The steps for doing so vary depending on your cellular provider and the type of phone you have. Generally, most phones will provide an indication that a blocked number has attempted to contact you. For example, it may show up in the call/text log as “blocked” or “private caller” instead of showing the actual phone number. If these methods do not work for your particular phone or situation, I would suggest contacting your cellular provider directly for assistance.

Unfortunately, you cannot view missed calls on blocked numbers on an iPhone. Once a number is blocked, the incoming calls from that number will not appear in your recent call history. To ensure you don’t miss any important calls from a specific number, try adding it to your contacts list and setting up a unique ringtone for that contact. This way, even if the call is blocked and does not appear in your recent call history, you’ll still be able to recognize when the person is calling based on the unique ringtone.

What happens when you block someone on iPhone and they text you?
When you block someone on an iPhone, they will not be able to contact you via text messages. The person will not be notified that they have been blocked, but any calls or messages sent from their end will not reach you. If the person tries to call, it will go directly to your voicemail. If they try to send a message, it won’t go through and they may receive a message saying ‘delivery failed’ or something similar. To block someone on an iPhone:
1. Go to Settings > Phone > Blocked Contacts
2. Tap Add New and select the contact you want to add
3. Tap Block Contact
Once someone is blocked, all of their incoming communication attempts (calls and texts) will be blocked without them being aware of this change in status.
