GetHuman-akha's customer service issue with Instagram from August 2018
Help with my Instagram issue
GetHuman-akha's next move: find and follow the right step-by-step guide.
Instagram doesn't have a customer phone number that is answered by an agent. Instead, GetHuman-akha will need to dig through the advice provided by Instagram, other customers and consumer advocacy websites like GetHuman. Here are some instructions we've written for similar issues- hopefully GetHuman-akha can let us know if they help or not.

The issue in GetHuman-akha's own words
I was trying to log in, but my account is blocked on my phone. ... Instagram is blocked from my phone. It is not allowing me to log in to any accounts nor can I sign up for a new one. From what I read, I am assuming someone reported my account. I have been having problems with an individual who had made a fake page and it got shut down shortly after I reported it. This person has now been trying to retaliate by trying to shut down my account. I have never violated any of the guidelines, nor have I posted anything inappropriate. I have had this account for about five years and it would be a huge loss if it gets deleted. I can currently access my account from my computer and other phones except my own. Please help me fix this problem.
This was very frustrating because its difficult to reach out to instagram and actually communicate with another human. Its also annoying that instagram actually blocks an account just because someone reports it. If someone actually took a look at my account, they would see that there is nothing wrong with it.
This could be made right by unblocking my IP address.
I have been a customer for about five years and its annoying that I have to encounter this.
I have tried many things such as temporarily disabling my account as well as signing in with facebook, but nothing has worked.
I have an issue with Instagram too
