    Is there any way to put an auto signature on each originated text? Is there an app that will do it if the phone won't? I know I can do it on email but would like to have it on text as well.

    I've never seen signatures on text messages. The best workaround I've found is to make a keyboard shortcut and use that at the end of any text message.

    I've seen a few people do it and I actually asked one person to stop texting me because of the signature. I don't mind seeing a signature in an email but in each and every text? YIKES!

    But yeah, a shortcut is probably going to be the only option..

    Is there an added benefit for having a signature on a text message? Is it just for formality's sake?

    I made a png image of my signature. So I just paste it in wherever I need it. Docs, email, messages, etc. You wouldn't want to use the png with anyone though. They could copy your signature. Here's the difference between using a png and a shortcut:

    I hate graphic signatures in emails or any message with attachments I need to save. it's just more work to select which attachments to save, or it means I end up with a bunch of stupid little image files to delete later. And for what? Vanity by the sender? I traditionally use my contact info as a signature but as text. Graphics look spiffy, but they suck for the recipients.

    The only benefit I can see is if you frequently text multiple people you haven't texted before. It would save you the time in signing those particular texts. However, it's pointless and irritating to see a needless signature in every text when you already know who the person is, which accounts for the majority of the texts we receive. I believe this is the reason Apple doesn't allow it.

    Now that is disappointing. They did have Air Wolf and Seaquest, lol. I did watch Air Wolf when I was a kid.

    I equate auto-sigs to vanity plates on cars. Pointless and (sometimes) annoying.

    There is in fact an app that will do it for you, if you still feel like doing it after reading this thread.

    It's called biteSMS. http://bitesms.com

    Good luck.

    BiteSMS hasn't been supported on the iPhone for quite a while. The development team disbanded.

    Wow, thank you for that information.

    Someone forgot to take down their website. :mad:

    Or maybe they felt they didn't have to, if old installations of the app still function.
