Can You Call Or Send A Text To Someone Who Blocked You?

As we know people block someone mostly because either they are by the calls or they don’t want to keep any contact with them. But when someone blocks you, you can still call or text them. It’s just that your call is declined automatically and diverts you to voicemail in some cases. 

But when we consider messages you can send messages to the person who has blocked you but they won’t receive them. In case, if they receive it ( as per the network they use) there is the least chance that they will see them.
