    Given the amount of characters you're allowed to use per text message, I'd imagine you wouldn't want to use a signature. I also don't know of any way to apply a signature to the text messages anyway.

    ONe way would be to create an auto text with the signature you want, then when you hit that series of keys you set it will populate your signature.

    Welcome. The reason I suggested that is because you can create a bunch of them for you to use as shortcuts...

    All cell phones have caller id, there's no point appending your cell # in a sms sig...it shows up already in his inbox.

    Re: sms/text signature

    You could download an app called BBReply, which will allow you to set a reply to address, and will show the email coming from whatever address you choose. You can create a new address but make it a your phone number, then send the email like normal but it will show your phone number when you set the reply to.

    I havent tried it yet but it should work.

    I just set mine to just show my number and it saved, but currently I dont have service books on my BB to send a test message...

    BBReply will send using your email address, but will appear as if it came from a different location...
