One of my favorite features on my BlackBerry is the AutoText (aka SmartCase/SmartWords). This is the feature that RIM uses to automatically capitalize words or correct them based on set rules. Awhile ago RIM gave us access to these AutoTexts and let us create our own. This lets you do things like make “rh” automatically change into Ronen Halevy after you write it. You can set these up by going to your homescreen>Options>AutoText.
I though I would share my most used shortcut with all of you and see if you had any better ones. I actually use AutoText for my signature on outgoing emails. I just type “atb” and my BlackBerry automatically converts it to “All the best, Ronen.” This way I can choose when I want to put a formal signature on the bottom of an email. It is also a great way to automatically fill out your email address, phone number, home address, and more with just a few keystrokes. Its even useful for typing out stuff as simple as “att” to have it automatically converted to AT&T.
So what are your most useful AutoTexts?
