    Default Why has word substitution stopped working in Text Message?

    The automated word substitution has stopped working within text message but continues to work in email, BBM, etc. Any thoughts?

    I think just A guess BlackBerry may have done due to the amount of text speak normally used today with its myriad abbreviations.

    Actuallu, if you look at the Settings in BlackBerry Hub > Text Messages. You can turn on Word Substitution on the SMS by moving the toggle to the right (blue icon).
    BlackBerry turn it off by default to minimize confusion when doing text messaging.
