Blackberry AutoText

Many blackberry users do not use the AutoText feature on their blackberry. That's a shame because it is one of the most productive features on the device. To an extend it functions a bit like a grammar and spell checker. It you type the word don't without the apostrophe, it will automatically correct it for you.

The best thing about this feature is how much you can customize it. I use several built-in AutoText shortcuts faily often, and have customized several for myself. I have set up an email signature, and you can set up as many as you want, that only requires me to type in 3 characters instead of dozens. You can even create questionaire forms, foreign language words or phrases, the list goes on and on and is only limited by your creativity.

So how do you get to the AutoText feature? From the Main or Home screen, Options - AutoText.

You'll see many built-in
AutoText(s) and can create as many as your own memory can remember. If you create too many and don't remember what they were, it would defeat the purpose.

One last tip, when typing holding a letter down for one second will make it Capitalize. No need to hold the shift key in this instance.
