Default Auto Text Question

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way to auto text a message that puts a contacts name in the message?

If I understand your question, that you want a contact name automatically inserted into a message? All autotext must be set up in advance, such as a shortcut to your own name, i.e., typing "gw{space}" would insert "George Washington".

I read you question to mean it would pull a name from the contact book? I don't believe that is possible.

i use a lot of the same email addresses so I also put someone's initials as outlined above followed by an e for their email, but you do have to enter this first

AFAIK user-created autotext entries are fixed so there's no way to make one for the name of the contact you're emailing.

Yes that was my question. Thanks.

Autotext is simply the best.
