What happens if one of your WhatsApp contacts deletes you in their phone ?

If one of your WhatsApp contacts deletes your phone number from their phonebook and WhatsApp contacts, can you still see them as being online, last seen or status because you haven't deleted their details fom your phone ?.Or do you only see those details if that person still has your phone number in their phonebook and WhatsApp contacts ?
Is there a way of telling that someone has deleted your phone number and details from their phone ?
Thanks,
BB.

    he’s read my message, he’s even replied to me but all i can see are two gray ticks and not two blue ticks on my message. How did he do that? I’m thinking either

    1. he didn’t add me to his contact list (is it possible to reply to someone who hasn’t added you to their contacts?)

    2. it’s on his privacy settings not to let others know the message has been read.

    any other possibilities to this? Coz the only thing I know is that when a message is read is that it should have two blue ticks. But mine are still 2 gray ticks but he’s read and even responded.

    1. If you are blocked by someone on whatsapp, what do you see? Do you see their profile picture before they blocked you or nothing at all? Time stamp hasn’t changed in weeks, does that mean you are blocked?

    2. If you are blocked and deleted from their phone book, then nothing is visible? Is that correct? Will you still be able to see the last time stamp when they blocked you now you are also deleted from the phone book, or nothing at all?

    In both cases both parties are using android

    I deleted the contact name & phone # from my iPhone contact list only. I have not deleted her from WhatsApp. Can this person still send me messages on WhatsApp and will I receive them?

  6. Macy

    Please someone in the know tell me what is going on here:

    I have a samsung phone. My ex blocked me on Whatsapp. I did not block him but I deleted his number. Now, two weeks later, just out of interest I readded his number and he has cropped back up on whatsapp with a new photo and a change of status. I’ve never been able to see his last seen due to his privacy settings. Does that mean he has “unblocked” me or could it mean something else?? ie. to do with the fact I deleted his number?

  7. Einah

    I message my friend and it was sent (one grey check). Does this mean i was blocked?
    Then i tried calling him and it was ringing.
    But still my message does not appear 2 checks that says its delivered.
    I can see him in my contacts list, his profile pic and timestamps
    Am i blocked? Please help

  8. Ariel

    There’s one person I don’t want seeing my status, profile picture and last seen. But I don’t want to block him. So I deleted his number and changed the whatsapp settings to ‘contacts only’. The thing is: I can still see his picture, last seen and status. Does that mean he can still see mine? Even though I deleted him and changed the settings?????

  9. Laros

    ok I had one of my contacts purpisely block me to see if she could send me anything , she did send a message but I couldn’t see it because I blocked her , I unblocked her and I still couldn’t see what she sent when I blocked her .
    My gf either deleted me or blocked but I still see her profile but when you slide the coco over to see when you sent it and nothing shows up ? Does that mean you are deleted ? From their contacts ??
    My huge question is if you slide the convo over to the left and see
    Ck mark .. Blue : Read
    Ch mark . Grey . Delivered (gives time you sent it . )
    and it tells you delivered 230 pm for instants . ?
    Does that mean you are not blocked or deleted from his whatsapp ?? Because it shows the time she read it . Where it says READ . And shows time delivered on other messages sent previously.
    So can anyone answer my question ??
    Thank you I appreciate it

  17. Fayee

    So if I uninstall my WhatsApp, does that mean I won’t receive any miss calls after I reinstalled it? Because when I’ve temporarily deactivated my account I have received misscalls after I’ve reactivated. What about messages sent during un-installation period?

    Also if I’ve deleted his number, will he still will be able to see me online (if he’s not allowed to see my last seen)?

  18. bella

    I’ve been mistreated by someone so took them off my whatsapp and blocked them. Will they still be able to view past correspondence; msgs, pics & vids? Thanks, appreciated if anyone can help

  19. sam

    During the conversation a dp of recipient removed and a msg I send her appeared with a single tick after 15min her same dp appear again and my msgs. remain with a single tick. Is she block me or it is just because her iPhone crashed

  20. blah

    if someone blocked you in whatsapp = u can see him in whatsapp select contact list, no last seen timestamp, no status and no pic, u can call them on whatsapp call and its ringing but they wont receive

    scenario 1
    if u cannot see last seen timestamp, no status n no profile picture, one tick on sent msgs, n he is still in your whatsapp select contact list:
    you are blocked or he set all 3 privacy (last seen, status, profile pic) to ‘Nobody’

    Does this mean it just blocked and still in phonebook/contacts?

    also will it know when unblocked again?

  21. Cee

    I blocked someone on whatsapp and they still see an old profile picture. (Not the current updated profile picture I currently have)
    How do I change this so that all blocked contacts see no profile pictures at all?

  22. P

    He will see your message as how he has saved your name in his phone. as xyz

  23. self

  32. susan

    If you go into your contact list in whatsapp in the left hand corner it gives an amount of contacts you have. My number differs from time to time, can it be that they deleted my number from their phonebook?

  33. Esha

    So if it says last seen and then the date what does this mean??

  34. Regardless

    Please help, i can’t even see the person anymore in my contact list even though i have his number. When i type his name it doesn’t show at all, i have tried two of my friends phone and it’s still the same his name doesn’t come up. What can cause this? i was thinking he has deleted his whatsapp.

  35. J

    Please answer me this question. I deleted my ex but not the convo message. I always change my profile pic. I can see their picture and last seen. Is their possible they keep checking my profile pic. And seeing their pic and last seen does that mean my number is saved on their phone or is it possible they deleted my number. I wanna know if the do checky profile pic

  36. Louise

    Help, my stalker has another phone number i dont know, how can i stop him from seeing me online on whatsapp!! My settings are all set to contacts only but don’t want him seeing me online!!! Will i have to remove the app?

  37. Free

    If you block someone, they will not be able to see anything ( photo, status). People can see your status and profile picture based on your privacy settings. If you have to just contacts then only your contacts will see your photo and status. If you have it set to everybody, then everyone can see your photo and status even after you delete them from your list.

  38. Thealgerian

    If I block someone, will they be able to see me online ?

  39. Dav

    As of Dec 14 Whatsapp works like this:

    You can see someone’s status, pics and when they were last online, even if they do not have you in their contacts list. You only lose the ability to do this if the other person changes their privacy settings. These settings can stop you, and anyone not in the persons contact list, from viewing their profile pic, status and online time.

    However, the only thing I believe you won’t be able to see is if someone is “typing” unless both of you are both in each others contacts list.

    Okay i’m going to stop now before you all accuse me of being a super stalker :)

  40. mostafa

    hey there .. i got a little problem .. ive been blocked for almost a month and during that time i couldnt see photos , statuses and last seen .. but last night i saw the statues only … what does that mean … i have iphone 5 and the other person is using android samsung phone …. any help ??

  41. annie91

    Hey,

    Just wondering…

    If you block someones number on your phone and not on whatsapp but you message them on whatsapp and it says it’s delivered, do they get that message? and would I receive whatsapps from them if I’ve blocked their number on my phone?

  42. anonymous

    If you don’t want to see a contact on wats app you have to delete them from your phone contact list. Lets say you delete them. You won’t be able to see them but they can see you. However if you have an android like mine you can set the privacy settings on your wats so that only your contacts can see your profile pix etc..I don’t know though that is this effective if the other party still has you in their contact list. I do know if you block a number it remains blocked even after you delete the number from your phone. It’s all complicated and does not help when you’re trying to move on from a broken relationship because it’s so easy to become stalker-like lol.

  44. Eddy

  46. carly

    My ex said he deleted my number, but I can see him online, see his photo and status. I still have old messages maybe this is why.

  47. Esha

    I’m confused I tried to message a friend of mine on wats app but when I went to go press sent it had a little clock thing what does that mean?

  48. ssaib

    Hi guys

    so that means you will never know if one of your contacts delete you off their phone book or contact list? Because you can still see them on your contact list.

  49. som.roys@yahoo.com

    I agree withJake, u delete the no from you contact list.they are still communicate with u and check ur status, last seeing. all as they use regular.

  50. Jake

    Hi BB,

    If someone deletes your phone number you won’t see this. You’re still able to see this persons status.
