    Is there a way to set a signature for your text messages. Am I missing it somewhere? I could only find the one for the emails. Thanks!

    Its not possible on an iOS device.

    side note: Signatures are annoying.

    some signatures are good but some that are like AAJHIHNJIKHJIHBUIBHUJBHJI are annoying.

    You can always set a text shortcut for your signature, so when you type your message, you just enter the shortcut you created and the text will auto replace with your signature. It's not automatic, but as close as you might be able to get.

    I agree! I don't like seeing a paragraph for a signature but just a name is all I want to use.

    I take it back, a Name as a signature is OK, a paragraph is not.

    Everything under a line of text is ok for me.

    Thanks for this workaround! Since it's not automatic, I don't think it's worth it though, I will just deal with not having a signature. It's not the end of the world for me but it is nice to know I have the option for later.

    My Account is the app you need to download, should be provided by your carrier. All the carriers in Canada have them.

    Oh ok, here in the states it isn't provided. Just the regular iMessage function of the phone. Thanks any way.

    Isn't there a myAT&T app? Perhaps it has the feature, as the Canadian carrier apps do.

    I will not text anyone that uses a signature, I find it far too annoying.
