    Default Shortcuts - faster way of texting.

    Shortcuts = Auto text

    For the past 4 years I have been an adamant blackberry user. I've always defended blackberry because I felt that it was the ultimate communicating device. After I got use to typing with my iPhone and autocorrect has been on my side, there was one feature of blackberry that I missed. Auto text.*

    Auto text is pretty much similar to auto text but the user can create abbreviations to cut the texting time.

    When I installed iOS 5, I noticed it had a setting option call "shortcuts". When I realized that it was Apple's version of auto text. To get to shortcuts, you simply:

    Options > General > Keyboard > Shortcuts.

    When you get there you can begin to create your shortcuts.*

    Here are some shortcuts that I've used from my past blackberry experience.

    Wrud = What are you doing?
    Wru = where are you
    Ru = are you*
    Mon = Monday
    Alot = a lot*
    Fb = Facebook

    Those are just some of what I have. Please feel free to post your shortcuts to make the texting experience a lot easier for all iPhone users
