    Auto Text?

    Advertisement



    I was just looking at the auto text help area on my 8700c. In order to use it, I have to type in the words I want it to recognize? Is this the only way to use it? Does it not work like my PC, filling in the spaces automaticly? If so, how do I activate it?
    Thanks!

    It's already on, and many words are already programmed (common spelling errors).
    You can add new words or shortcuts for words ie. turn "u" into "you".
    It can speed up your thumbing by quite a bit.

    It does help you type out a message MUCH more quickly if you learn what words are recognized by the AutoText feature. I use it for my email signature as well so any email I type on my BB has the same signature as when I type something in Outlook. I have it setup where I type my first name and then the first letter of my last name and then when I push the space bar, it types out my formal signature with my company address, phone numbers, email address, all that.

    It can be a very useful tool if you learn to utilize it.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I'm not sure if you've gone here already but go to OPTIONS - AUTOTEXT to see what is already set up for you and to enter new shortcuts. I just found this out myself.
