Wow...So here is the scoop. I had a bb pearl 8100 and some how I was able to create an auto signature with my text messages. All it was "~". Fine great- but now I switched to a new bb Bold 9700 and I cannot stop my text messages from displaying the -~ at then end of each message and it's making me crazy. Everywhere I read it says that you cannot have an auto signature- you have to edit your auto text so when you type "sig" it populates it for you. Oh BUT NOT FOR ME so why do I? Why can't I get rid of it? Help me someone please- oh you gods and goddesses of Blackberry's????????????? I am such a nerd that I am loosing sleep over this.....I know I know. Is it some how saved to my SMS chip- that is the only thing I can think of. Boo Boo for me.
