Re: How to tell if someone is blocking you?

Here is what I tried. Create another Skype account and call that someone you think have blocked you. If it says "connecting" and then it says "ringing" or he answers then he BLOCKED your REAL ACCOUNT. But if it says its "connecting" only and the call ended he might be offline for real. So you should do all of this at least at the time you know when he normally goes online. Try doing this thrice or at different times. You could also try adding him and then editing the introduction message. You should not reveal your real identity ok. If he adds you then that's it.

Re: How to tell if someone is blocking you?

Recently I've been communicating with someone on Skype. And they've stopped replying to my IM's Could you tell me the likelihood of me being blocked from the parameters below? FYI; - I use iphone Skype.

They still show as status online

I just now reinstalled Skype but now can't see their avatar
Can't see their contact count
Can't see their time zone

The IM's I send appear to go through- not pending or anything.

The other day my IM history with them suddenly disappeared- this was before I reinstalled Skype. Am I blocked and/ or deleted???
Please help.

no, you are not blocked.  If they have blocked you, they will appear as offline.

Re: How to tell if someone is blocking you?

So, there's no way they can appear as online and have you blocked?

What about IM history? Does that disappear if Someone blocks you?

Re: How to tell if someone is blocking you?

yes, you will see them as offline regardless of their real online status.  The copies of your conversation with them will not be deleted.  They will still remain saved in your computer and their computer (or device) unless you (and/or they) delete them (or set to be deleted after a certain period of time).

[ Edited ]

For me, now I can finally distinguish whether the person has blocked me or he/she is just simply offline. I tried adding my dummy account using my actual account, then blocked it. Then I signed in to my dummy account and tried sending messages to my actual account. Actually, I also tried sending a message to my sister's account using my dummy account. What I have noticed is that, when I sent a message to my actual account (which blocked my dummy account), it doesn't have that rotating circle on the right side of the message . While on my message to my sister's account, there was that rotating circle. - Meaning, my sister is just really offline. With this difference, I can now say that when somebody has blocked you and you tried sending message, no rotating circle appears. You can try this yourself too. :wink:

yes, they will still see your previous chat conversations.
