    Found this by accident. If in a text box you type sig then a space, the software will fill in your lock screen display information. In my case it is my home address and email address. It is whatever you put in that box in the settings menu. If you type sig then space and do not want the automatic fill, then backspace twice and it will return to the word "sig".

    Just thought this was cool!

    Ed: I posted this here because I did this on my Torch!

    Nice tip. I'll never use this but nice none the less. I use a weird key combo such as "zx" to enter one of my signatures. I just use the auto text feature under settings.

    I don't think that I would ever need it either. Make me wonder what other shortcuts like this one exist.

    Happy Blackberrying!

    Found more. They are in Options > Typing and Input > Word Substitution. Here are the ones that apparently come with the Torch (or OS 6):

    br -> (
    Rb -> )
    Ld -> local date
    Lt -> local time
    Mynumber -> My phone number
    Mypin -> My PIN
    Myver -> Device number and Software version
    Sig -> Display Information
    Usrid -> Display Name

    That's all I have found so far.

    I tried all the above on my Bold 9000 - they all work, so these have been in there for quite some time!
