    Post How To: Make Your BB "Type For You"

    Advertisement



    Do you ever need to email driving directions from your BlackBerry?
    Would you like multiple email signatures (business, informal, etc?)


    If yes, this tip is for you! It helps you by teaching your BlackBerry type the text for you.

    How to do it: Briefly:
    1. Get to the Options Screen (On Standard Keyboard BlackBerries: Home screen > Wrench Icon, On 7100 Series Icon Mode: Wrench > Settings or Settings Icons; 7100 Series List Mode: Settings > Options)
    2. Select AutoText, select New
    3. Under Replace type in your code word for your lengthy text (e.g. sig1 for your #1 signature)
    4. Under With type in your full text (e.g. full signature) that should be replaced when you type your code word and Save.
    5. Now every time you type your code word in email or memo pad and hit space, youll see your full text instantly replace it.

    Nice tip pal! I was just looking at the auto text the other day and I thought maybe things like this could be done, but didn't look into it. I've had my 8100 for about 4 months now and I'm stil amazed at how much I'm still learning/discovering about it.
