Had the same problem on my PC. Search the blokked person and click your right click. Now you're able to unblock this person in the right corner on your screen

how absurdly well hidden was that?. What is wrong with tap-hold or right click on the contact itself?.


Usablilty down the drain.


But at least I can do it now (found this thread from a google search)
