I will be watching for an answer as well. I am sure that you can I just don't know where it is.

If not you can always set it up in Auto-Text. Define it as something like
xx = Ginfocker, Super BB User. then you just type xx and it pops up.

Well, at least you know your options now.

Good luck.

The problem with sigs on SMS is that they take up part of the 200 character maximum for a text message. If the signature takes an SMS over 200 characters, it splits into two messages...

... and chances are, your sig would look goofy if split.

I was about to say that the other characters are for addressing information; but now I'm reading two conflicting wiki's (one that says 160+ and the other says it's 160 inclusive -- but now I'm leaning towards what you said).

However, I also read something I didn't know that explains something: while some messages do get split into two, it's usually the phone software that does this, most carriers truncate the message at 160 characters if the software doesn't do the split. I often wondered why some txt's seemed... well, half finished, heh.

Edit/Add: In any event, the signature method given, using autotext, seems best if you insist on signatures for SMS, but an auto-signature might be a bad idea for the reasons given.
