Blackberry Users Frequently asked Question.
All BlackBerries have AutoText. This is a feature which allows you to enter a short word - such as "mynum" (sans quotes) and when you hit [Space] after the word it is translated into something else - like your cell phone number - automatically. The list of AutoText entries is maintained under Options --> AutoText. There is a long list of entries preloaded that are handy - like you can type "cant" and when you hit [Space] after the t it will automatically be changed to "can't". There are also system variables like %p and %P that are used that translate into your phone number (%p) and your PIN number (%P). You can type these system variables, or use AutoText to translate mynum into %p. I created an AutoText entry that converts "sig" into a signature for emails that uses %O which is the Owner Information entered under Options.
