    I’ve bought a Oneplus 5T so that I could stop having to carry 2 phones around (personal and my business mobile) and so far I’m very impressed

    But; not sure if I can, I’d like to have 2 separate contact lists and 2 separate SMS apps; I’ve tried, it they just seem to merge.

    Is there an app out there that can allow me to have 2 separate contacts (or assign contacts to a specific SIM) and a text app that will allow me to select which number I want to text from?

    I’ve got my personal SIM in slot 1, which I think is the main slot for 4G and data and my business SIM in slot 2, so that’s for calls and texts only

    I’m fairly new to Android having been an iPhone user for a one time; but had enough of Apple’s phone costs and how limited they are. I did buy 2 Google Pixel phones (an XL and a 2XL); found them to e really good to use and a lot easier than iphones; but having one mobile to do the job of 2 is a revelation to me!

    Any advice or help would be much appreciated

    Thank you

    I use an app called "Dual SIM Selector Pro".
    This allows you to assign a contact, a group of contacts or dialing code to a SIM.
    So all my work contacts are in a group called work and assigned to use my work SIM. I also make a lot of international calls for work so anything with +1 or +91 goes to my work SIM. Similarly, family and friends are grouped to always use my personal SIM.
    The app can also be setup to ask each time which SIM to use.

    That’s brilliant, thank you

    I shall download that this evening and try to get it set up properly. Fingers crossed it’ll do exactly what I need it to do, which by the sounds of your explanation, it will :)
