iPhone blocking contacts on it’s own : Fix

Is your iPhone blocking some of your contacts on your phone on its own? This can be a huge problem for you as the person won’t be able to contact you any way. You won’t even realize the person has been blocked, as there won’t be any notifications of any sort. Fixing this problem should be your main priority.
