This is called a "signature" like the forum signature.

The blackberry doesn't support signatures. However, you can set auto text to convert a combo of letters into a signature

If you are on Verizon, go to this site and you can set a signature.

Sorry, I cannot post links due to my post count. You will need to copy and paste it without the spaces.

This will work for email but not SMS. There's no way to add a signature to SMS messages on the BB. There is a work around as Dan stated. Create an autotext entry and replace zx with your name. Then at the end of every message you would just have to type zx and it would replace it with your name.

You are right. I overlooked that part.
