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 ?

    I still have the persons contact but when I want to read the status there is nothing there but when I delete the persons number from my phone then I can read the status
    Does it mean the person have deleted my number?

    @rinhen. This sounds like he doesn’t have WhatsApp anymore. Maybe he deleted it or changed his number. Sending an sms an option?

    @Marisa, no. If you delete a contact in your phone you will see the chat in your list but with the phone number instead of your contacts name

    Some of these people may be mothers and fathers of our children. So there is just more than friends using Whatsapp. There is a little thing called Divorce and an EX from hell if you haven’t heard of that, then it has never happened to you.

    Why are people so desparate checking all these signals. If someone isn’t messaging, they don’t want to. If someone blocked you on one app, they don’t want anything to do with you on another app. If you can or cannot see someone’s details, or how many ticks are showing after 3 days. Seriously, how pathetic. Has anyone read over a few of these comments. It’s hilarious. Live your life not worrying who has your number or who doesn’t. Crazy people.

    I meant *Viber not cover.

    If you have their number in the phone then they would show on any app cover or not. Regardless, it doesn’t mean they have your number on their phone. Settings are different. But if someone blocks you on one app kind of says it all, why waste your time?

    If a guy has blocked you on whatsapp and I can see them on viber have they deleted your number off their phone?

    OK what if someone has your number and has saved you to their contacts list on their phone and has WhatsApp BUT you don’t save them to your contact list. Can they therefore see your status and pictures etc??


    If I can see the contact picture and “last seen..” status with timestamp and this changes day to day, I’m obviously not blocked but am I still a contact of theirs?

    I sent a msg to someone Sunday been 3 days now it has 2 ticks but haven’t heard anything unsure if this person has no service or I’ve been deleted from the contacts I did a broadcast half hour ago has 1 tick. I’m hoping I’m wrong with this person not deleting I’m unsure what to think

    Hi Stevo,

    Users can deactivate the blue checkmarks. This is probably the case. So it could be read, but -sorry- just ignored.

    Is it also possible that this contact has ‘deleted’ me from their phone contacts and I’ll never know?
    ..or would the pic, status and last seen… disappear like they do when you ‘block’ someone?

  24. Stevo

    I can see a profile pic of this contact, and I can see the ‘last seen…’ and ‘online’ status.
    When I message this contact it sends (one grey tick) and then delivers (two grey ticks)
    I can see this contact appear online and disappear offline again but the message I’ve sent never gets read (two blue ticks) they always stay grey.
    I’ve sent several messages and this has happened with all of them.
    I’m pretty sure I’m not blocked.
    Is this contact just deleting the messages without reading them or is there some other thing happening?
    Please help.

    If I deleted a contact from my list and main phone book but I still have an archived message which I looked at and seen there online and last online status, even though this person told me they had deleted my number as well..
    Does this mean they never deleted my number?

    If someone blocks YOUR NUMBER then DELETES You from their whatsapp and their phone you will see NOTHING. No picture… Only one tick to any messages you send via whatsapp and if you do try to call them via whatsapp it will ring at your end but WONT AT THEIRS!
    If you call them normally it will ring once and divert to the vmail. That person will also not know you tried to call them!

    Ok here’s my question. My ex is playing a 1 player game because I’m not biting or reacting. She (what appears to be) blocking me then unblocking me. Changing her pic to things she knows I like etc (childish I know). Heres the latest… She appeared to have blocked me again because I couldn’t see her, profile pic, status or last seen timestamp until I noticed her online one day. So my question is… if I have been blocked, number removed or whatever, would I be able to see her online? Or is she still playing games in order to get me to get in touch or react in some way? (which will not happen).

    If you have blocked someone they will only see your last profile pic.
    If you have blocked someone and deleted their no. and have your privacy set to Contacts Only they will not see your profile pic.
    If you delete a contact and your settings are set to CO only they will not see your profile pic.
    If your status is set to CO they will not see your status.
    If you see only 2 grey ticks…the message has been delivered but not read…OR they have their settings set to “nobody can see their read messages” they cannot see yours either.
    If you cannot see a persons profile pic it’s because they have their settings to CO, Nobody or you are not in their contacts in their phone anymore
    If you cannot see their “last seen” status it’s because they have it set to CO or nobody. They cannot see yours either!
    If you send a message to someone and only one tick appears it has not reached their phone because it is switched off or they have blocked you!

    question: how can you tell if a contact deleted you off their contact lists on whatsapp? i’m just asking because i go on my contacts lists right? i go to a former friend’s message board. it used to say last seen at. i go to where it says tap info for contact. it doesn’t say last seen. i can still see their profile picture. at times where i go on his message board, it says he’s online then it doesn’t say last seen at blah blah blah. if anyone can help me with this, much appreciated!
