Hiding blocked contacs functionality?


There is something I want to understand. Why we are unable to hide blocked contacts? For example I have a friend who has 3 phone numbers. On all of them he used to have whatsapp but kept it only on one line. In whatsapp contact list all three numbers are listed as a result. I had to block two of them just to have them off my way.

Or another dozen of friends who registered at whatsapp but uninstalled it. They still show up as valid contacts in contact list. Again I had to block them, just to have them off the way. Now why I cant hide blocked contacts? Is it so difficult to introduce such a simple functionality????

    I have read a number of comments with no solutions. Can anybody at what’s app assist us please. So many people r asking for the same thing. We do not want to see our blocked contacts…thts the whole idea of blocking them. Is there any way tht an option can b available to the public so tht we no longer have to see our blocked contacts.

    No that’s not possible. Otherwise you can’t unblock them (if you want in future)

    hey..at last i got a way…
    first u block the number what u want…and delete that contact from ur phone..
    so in block list it will show that number what u have blocked…
    if u want to remove that number from there too…
    just delete ur account once from settings..and reinstall by giving your same number again..
    now when u look ur whats app blocked list..u cant see any numbers..
    i think this is the only way to delete contacts from blocked list.

    Here is the deal, I have people who spoke to me on what’s app. I don’t have them saved on my phone, but apparently they do. It’s how they spoke to me, I blocked them and now they are shown on my blocked List, Even though I don’t have them as contacts on my phone. I only see numbers and it is annoying since there are people who advertise and such on What’s app I want them permanently removed not just blocked! how would I be able to do that if you keep them on a blocked list “EVEN THOUGH I DON’T HAVE THEM SAVED ON MY CONTACTS” now tell me how is it possible to remove them?

    hiding blocked contact option should be there.

    No…. asking all friends who used whatsapp but uninstalled it without deleting an account to go and delete it, is a laborous task.

    Ok, when I block someone the name still appears on the lisr, but you cant send a message to them by mistake, and the name will be shaded. Now, why not going one step ahead and allowing to hide the blocked contacts. It is such a simple task…

    True… they also seem not to care much about their windows phone users, still no word on the disappearance, their customer care is just ridiculous.

    Back on topic, basically WhatsApp sees these accounts as active. Once verified and without deleting the account, an account will still show up as valid/active, despite the fact it has been removed. Your friend should install whatsapp and use the option DELETE account. Should… should… Let me say, that’s the solution.

    But when you block an account, this is still visable in ur list, yeah?

  20. Peter

    No… the numbers are active…but he uninstalled whatsapp from them without removing accounts. He has only one active account and I had to block the rest so that I will not send anything there by mistake.

    Now why I cant hide the blocked accounts? I wrote whatsapp support many times but they cant care less…

    Don’t know, but regarding your first example. WhatsApp checks your phone list, so if this person doesn’t remove his/her account then it’s easy: these are still valid whatsapp accounts. Only removing the inactive numbers from your phonelist should be the solution.

    The other one, have you refreshed your whatsapp contactlist? Those contacts shouldn’t show up anymore.

    I agree, it’s odd that you can’t remove people without blocking them
