    Is there some way to automagically insert frequently typed texts?

    For example:

    Just about everyday, before hoping in the car for the drive home, I'll text me wife asking if there's anything I need to from the store.

    It would be great if I could configure a few texts and then have them auto-inserted into the message body for me.


    Anyone?

    Just save and resend the same message.

    sounds like you could utilize the same trick people do for signatures.

    Much too lazy for that.
    Besides, I'm in the habit of deleting messages once sent.
    Keeps things organized that way...

    Also, the timestamp would be an issue...

    What trick would that be?


    Hmm, you'd think someone would've written an app like this by now...

    Why write an app to do what can be done so easily.

    Just add it to your Auto Text list. Go to Options > Auto Text > BB/Menu button > New. First you have to tell it what short key stroke you would like to type... maybe use your wife's initials or something. Then you tell it what you want that short text to be replaced with... like "Need anything from store?" or whatever. Then when you send a text, just type the short keystroke, followed by a space, and it will automatically insert the message you want it to send.

    Oh, I get it now!

    I feel stupid now for not figuring this out before posting this thread...

    I was kind of P.O'd because I've had (not so smart) phones in the past with the feature I'm describing. I guess this is BB's way of doing it. <undecided.gif>

    Don't feel stupid... there is a lot to learn about BBs! You're in the right place to learn it! (We were all new to them at one time.)
