installing now... Let me see..I used to use SMS FILTER , but its removed now.Anyway be carefull in blocking the SMS , with LM as starting , many banks and even facebook sometimes use those tag to send sms . so if you use wildcards with LM or something , you might not get the important SMS.\Also the problem is these spamsters use multiple numbers. hard to ban them , unless a national level user feedback driver method is obatained , these spamster number are updated on daily basis , and database collected and rated according to no of people blocking the no.
this app lets you make a whitelist from your inbox. so if you already have enough messages in your inbox, you can easily whitelist most legit senders.and as you can see from the screenshot... it allows you to permanently blacklist a sender as soon you get a new sms from that sender. this is what i wanted and this app is delivering that finally.and you still get a muted alert on each blocked sms too. so that's good. you can quickly check all the blocked sms from a centralized panel.
What we need is a subscribed block list like adblock plus wherein all known spam numbers etc. are mentioned and automatically blocked. I use Anti Spam SMS and it works pretty well.(not that it has that feature)
i tried anti spam sms in the past. did not work for me. that's why posted about this one. as for a centralized database... this can only happen once the app is popular enough and is used by a lot of people.
