Tap the Edit button and make a selection of the number you wish to unblock. Tap the minus (-) button beside the numbers. Then hit Unblock. You can also swipe the numbers from left to right and hit Unblock.
Finish up by tapping the Done button located at the top-right corner of the page.

How to Unblock a Number on iPhone through Third-Party Apps
If you block and unblock numbers on a regular basis, you might consider downloading an app that can help you manage all these. We recommend Mr. Number but there are many others available.
With Mr. Number, you can automatically block spam calls or calls that do not have any Caller ID. The app also allows you to to report number you suspect may be spam and block numbers on your own.
With the way the app was built, you get better management of blocked numbers than what the iOS Settings have to offer.
Search out the app on the App Store and install. It offers features that will make blocking and unblock easy to do.
