Autotext % Codes

Various of the standard Autotext entires on my 9520 use % codes which result in things like the Date being added to the message. Where can I find the complete list of these codes?

Re: Autotext % Codes

I don't know of a complete list.. Here are some I have read and collected over time.


myver = Version and Model #
mynumber = BB Phone #
br = left bracket
ld = long date (DayName, MonthName DayNumber, YearNumber)
lt = long time (HH:MMSmiley FrustratedS AM/PM)
mynumber = your Blackberry phone number
mypin = your Blackberry PIN number
myver = Blackberry Model Number/OS Version Number
rb = right bracket
sig = the address information from Owner setting in Options
usrid = the name information from Owner setting in Options
mydcid = Direct Connect number (specific to Nextel)

These can be used to create macros:
%d = date
%t = time
%D – Long Date (Fri, Jun 1, 2008)
%o – Name (as entered in Options –> Owner –> Name)
%O – Information (as entered in Options –> Owner –> Information)
%p – 12345678901 (Device Phone Number. No punctuation)
%P – 12345678 (Device PIN)
* %T – Long Time (6:58:20 AM)
* %V – 8800/ (Device Model/OS Version)

Re: Autotext % Codes

J,  Heard of this...


Ran into non-responsive sig (%O) with my new 9930. All autotext seems to work in general, but sig does nothing.


Might this be a OS 7 bug?

We're all out here together...
