    Discovered that with ios5 you can create shortcuts for use with messages. Under Settings -> General -> Keyboard.

    Have a phrase you text a lot such as "on my way" you can enter a shortcut such as "omw" and it will autofill the phrase.

    sweet! I can't think of any other shortcuts though. I'm so used to typing out everything. What other phrases would people need shortcuts for?

    It could be "fornicate" too. Thanks to Mr. Chi-City.
