Spam

If you are unable to contact strangers, you may want to contact Telegram's @SpamBot. No worries, it won't send you spam but it's able to check if your account is limited.

When users press the ‘Report spam’ button in a chat, they forward these messages to a team of moderators for review. If the moderators decide that the messages deserved this, the account becomes limited temporarily.

This means that if you have been sending unwanted messages to random strangers or posting spam in groups, you lose the ability to do so.

What exactly happened to my account?

I will delete my account and create a new one with the same number

This won't help. Better save your time. Limited accounts can send messages to people who have their number saved as a contact. You can also always reply to anyone who messages you first.By the way, iff this happened to you for the first time (and you are not an industrial scale spammer), most likely your account will be limited for a few days or so. Please wait and consider that people want a peaceful time using their messenger. Repeated offences will result in longer periods of being blocked. If you keep writing unwanted messages to strangers, you may lose the ability to do so forever.

But.. but I didn't do anything

If you are sure that the limit was wrongfully applied to your account, contact Telegram's @SpamBot.

I contacted Telegram Support, they won't help they say

Telegram support is run by volunteers, ordinary users. They are unable to check your account. @SpamBot is your friend instead.
