    Disable autotext would probably mean while typing an sms it will not use autotext entries.

    Network to send over... http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...hlight=gsm+sms

    The rest Ill leave to someone else...

    Number of Previous Items - How many messages are included in the thread or Conversation history. It's how many previous messages are quoted in the current message.

    AutoText: unless you type in "SMS-glish", you'd probably want that left on, both to correct minor spelling mistakes and to learn new words.

    Data Coding and Network sould be left alone, unless you do want your SMS to not function properly.

    The Previous Items is the number of previous SMS messages included in the view between you and a particular contact, think of it as a thread or a conversation. The problem with this is that the higher the number, the more the history. Many have experienced problems with having a high number set (or even any number at all! I prefer and recommend 0).

    Problems include: slow, sluggish BlackBerry, slow to type, slow to send/recieve SMS, as well as message purging due to low amounts of "file free" memory.

    I didn't know what to call it!

    It's not quite English....that's all I know!



    Personally, I can't stand it! And I don't even read posts which are composed in SMS-glish. I just don't have the time or the brain power to figure out what someone is trying to type (but is too lazy to fully type).

    Lewis, I agree and although I will read them, it really irks me that they do it. As hard as I try to avoid it, I find it tends to affect the tone of my response. And I usually start with a comment about how the question was hard to understand, if it's really bad.

    Hi all, I think it says a lot for the calibre of folk we get in here, that you very very rarely have to read that rubbish. Yeah!

    Totally agree about the "SMS-glish." I understand why you'd use it on a regular cellphone with the numeric keypad, since it's hard to type(although i have a friend who has written me long non-sms-glish emails from her cellphone and her native language isnt even english...that's effort :P ). But if you have a BB (say in BB messenger, or when writing email) or you are typing on a computer, there is no reason to use abbreviations which the reader has to decipher. I agree with all of you..

    At work we had these gawd awful machine that were qwerty. But you used any and every short cut to type messages. Next were pocket PC, it is a little better.
    With the qwerty BlackBerry the urge to short cut is less with every day.
