    Auto Signature?

    Advertisement



    This has probably been discussed here before, but I have never found it...

    Ok, when you have Information filled in under the Owner info.

    Example...Options-Owner:
    Name:
    Information:

    I happen to have:
    Device Traceable Through GPS Tracking if Stolen Or Lost

    Call XXX-XXX-XXXX or XXX-XXX-XXXX

    (good way to sike someone out who may try and steal it).

    Anyways, if you have something written in there, try this.

    Go to compose an email, PIN, SMS, whatever...and Type Sig and then hit a space and that info that is in your information will pop right in there.

    Is that considered a form of auto-signature?

    Re: Auto Signature?

    Sort of. You can also go into autotext and create new entries there to use as signatures. The auto signature is really set on the BIS or BES and it automatically tags a signature on all outgoing messages. It usually defaults to something like "This message sent from my Blackberry handheld".

    I prefer not letting people know that I'm away and responding via BB. I also preefer using autotext with an unusual combination of letters (e.g. "zz" or "zx") so I can have multiple signatures.

    Well, I still have the auto-sig "sent from my blackberry wireless device" that goes out on emails...this just pops up in the middle of an email or bb messenger or whatever when you type sig

    When you type "sig" it will populate what you have in your owner information, but you already knew that. I use it all the time when people want my name and address.

    Re: Auto Signature?

    N8, there are several convient auto-text entries pre-programed into your BB and as takeshi said, you can create more of your own. I think "st " = short time, "sd " = short date, "lt " and "ld = long time and long date. But the two I really like are "mypin " and "myver ". And "mynumber " = your phone number.

    Hope this helps.

    I knew you could write "PIN" and hit the space bar, and presto....your PIN number is displayed, but was not aware you could create separate signatures via auto text.

    Thanks for the tip....
