If you didn't know, with iOS 5, you have global keyboard shortcuts at your disposal. They can be added by going to Settings->General->Keyboard->"Add new Shortcut..." I got the following shortcuts from this article and I think they are really convenient: drv - "I'm driving right now and will respond to your message later." rl8 - "I'm running late." eml - your e-mail address. phn - your phone number. adr - your street address (Shortcuts don't allow line returns, so you can't insert a complete mailing address unless you're OK having it in one line). adr2 - your city, state, and ZIP code (still much faster than typing out the entire thing) fb - your Facebook address twt- your Twitter address sig1 - an e-mail signature you can use in place of the one you've already configured--great if you want a substitute signature for, say, business correspondence. Add sig2, sig3, and so on if you want a multiline signature. weba - the URL for your blog, Web site, or other Web address.

Feel free to add your own or link to other websites that have a good list already started.
