    Like s7ar Scr3am - don't currently have any set up but there's some good ideas in this thread so thanks for it. Funnily enough, I was thinking today about setting one up for my email address.

    bld = [ B ]
    bld1 = [ /B]
    img = [ img ]
    img1 = [ /img ]

    That is just a few
    Why not just set up bld = [ B ] [ /B] ? Then just use the trackball to scroll back to the middle and start typing. Might save a little extra time.

    What? No you don't. You type bld and you get [ B] [ /B]. No symbol key involved.

    Only have two so far as I only started using this feature this week and both were at the suggestion of CB members:

    "Sig1" for my first e-mail signature which is my business signature complete with address/tel/fax/e-mail addy and

    "Sig2" for my regular e-mail signature

    Since you have to press SPACE before typing "nSPACE", you're still using the same number of keystrokes to create the character. I don't really see the benefit of this one.

    I prefer not dealing with the ALT key when possible - might just be my quirk. I have the ! mark in my set, also.

    This thread gave me a brilliant idea yesterday. I set up 'jobapp' as a standard job application letter so that if I'm out and hear about a job, I can ask for the email address, type up a covering letter quickly, attach my CV/Resume (which is already on my berry) and fire it off.

    I'd like to see more of what others are doing. These autotext shortcuts are a big help. Some of mine:

    I have autotexts for all times of the day in 30 minute increments such that 1230 = 12:30, etc.

    I have autotext shortcuts for all days of the week and months.

    I have autotexts shortcuts for my full name, my email Address and home address.

    Ui = I'd (to eliminate confusion with "if").

    Se = see (to avoid confusion with "are").

    W = $ (eliminates one keyboard switch when entering a dollar amount).

    Hbd = Happy Birthday

    Ily = I love you

    I have others but those are the best. There must be other good ideas out there???

    Mymail
    Myname
    Myadd
    Mystadd

    I'm probably going to steal a few from this thread as well.

    Exactly what the title states. Just hoping to pickup some good shortcuts on this. So what autotext does everyone have setup?

    I don't have very many. I hate when words that need conjuctions don't have conjuctions. So when I type "its" and it needs a conjuction, it won't come out. Obviously because "its" fits in the context of a certain sentence. So instead I setup "itz" and auto goes "it's." (I know, I'm obsessed)

    itz = it's

    weree = we're

    ure = you're

    ur = your

    nwo = n.W.o. (inside joke)

    illl = I'll

    Just to name a few. Then of course I have symbols setup for BBM.
    Your autexts shoud have been manually set for contractions. "It's vs its" is a good one. Whenever you type a word that automatically puts in the apostrophy, hit backspace tothe last letter, it'll automatically remove te apostrophy and keep it gone.

    I like this idea. Since I don't drive often, I will tweak this one to "I'm busy right now. I'll get back to you later."

    Thanks for this cool idea
