Default Signature

Please Login to Remove!

I'm using BB 8520 handheld and my question is,
Is there a way to on and off the signature when we need.. rather logging into a web account..?

Please treat this as a urgent basis.

LOL at treating this as urgent... You do realize that it is the middle of the night in North America where most members are located right?

Anyway, the best way to do it is create an AutoText item that creates your sig when you type in a shortcode. For example, I had my old device fill out my full signature when I type *sig into a message. However, I would recommend that you leave something in there that explains that the message was sent using a mobile device to alert people that the message may be short or have errors so that people don't think you're just a non-professional boob. My device always includes the text "! - Sent from a mobile device - !" at the end of a message for this purpose.

Also, please correct your profile to indicate who your service provider is. There is no provider called "System Administrator".

Urgent?? For real? Don't think so. Even if it wasn't the middle of the night ....

Anyway, the best no-cost method in indicated above to use the AutoText feature.

Alternately, there are third party applications that will allow you to control the signature in your email as well as text messages.
