    I have never blocked anyone before. Now that I have, I'm wondering how they know they are blocked. If they know, how do they know?
    Is something stated to them when they call the number that blocked them?

    Welcome to the forums.

    I believe that they're told that the call cannot be connected or something like that. They'll probably realise after several attempts that they've been blocked.

    It actually depends on how they're being blocked and by whom. My landline carrier, for example, gives them a recording, telling them that they've been blocked. If their number (by callerID) is invalid or all 0s, they're told that fake numbers are blocked. If I block a call on my cellphone (not by my cellphone carrier, but on the phone), it goes directly to voicemail, which I can listen to or delete, depending on the calling number I see. Some Android blocking apps let you record a message to be played to the caller before hanging up, without ringing the phone or making any notification to you.
