    1. Dual sim support, so that it shows which sms came thru which sim.
    2. Should allow to reply with whichever sim we like.
    Both of the above are most basic and the android default message app itself has them.
    3. Should have a word filter to reject emails or store them separately without pinging and disturbing me (multiple keywords based blocking will be super helpful). This the only thing im needing that's not in the default android sms app. This is all i want.

    The first 2 are already in the basic sms app that comes with android marshmallow. Its only that i want the third feature (keyword filter/blocking) without sacrificing the first 2 basic most features.

    For one year, tried installing more than 20 different types of sms apps. Of these 3 basics which i mentioned above it will be lacking one feature.Either they will have word blocking, but no dual sms identification (can't tell which sms came thru which sim). Or it can do dual sim recognition but it can't block keywords. [​IMG].

    Wow, such a huge group of experts and not even a single opinion. Must be a dead forum. I could have spent my time installing some more random apks instead of asking here.

    I understand what you're asking but can you describe a little more about what your ultimate goal is? For example, are you just trying to not get alerted by actual spam texts? Are you trying to just not get alerted by certain contacts?

    Just trying to determine if there's another way to go about accomplishing what you want. For example, just muting notifications for specific contacts, etc.

    I really only use stock messaging so I don't have experience with any of the 3rd party sms apps. Whenever I get a spam text I just block that number. I could search around, but it sounds like you've already tried a lot of them. And without knowing what you've tried, it might be a waste of time trying to find one you haven't already used.

    Actually the problem is that I don't know a single SMS app that does keyword blocking. And I've tried several. LOL.
