Stranders sent us a tip reminding me about the power of BlackBerry AutoText shortcuts. In case you don’t know AutoText is the cool little text shortcuts on a BlackBerry that convert certain characters into longer strings. For example I have the letters atb automatically convert into All the best, Ronen for my signature. It also lets you do nifty things like automatically convert att to AT&T to make typing easier.
You can even use it to get super lazy and convert the first letters of your name like ro to convert to Ronen which saves you a little time. I know I have one that converts nbr to my phone number and adrs to my shipping address.
So in the spirit of sharing and fun I decided to make a contest out of this. All you need to do is leave a comment on this article with your best AutoText shortcuts and you will be automatically entered to win. The prizes available are TEN $10 Bplay Gift Cards kindly provided by the amazing team over at Bplay. Multiple comment submissions are totally allowed but only one prize will go to each user. Submissions will be judged based on usefulness and the submission deadline is October 29th at 11:59 PM EST.
NOTE: In case you don’t know you can find and setup AutoText shortcuts on your BlackBerry by going to Options->AutoText.
