To facilitate the user, this Messaging app has equipped with some features, one of which is a text signature. This feature will allow you to add your own text signature up to 40 chars (letters/numbers/punctuations/symbols) then display it at the bottom of each your outgoing message.


How to enable and add your own text signature?
Below are the steps to do so:
  1. Open Messaging app.
  2. Tap the Menu key then select Settings.
  3. Scroll down to find Signature settings section and then tick the box next to Add signature to include signature in each message.
  4. Tap Signature text.
  5. Type your own signature here. It may be your name or something you want everyone to read it.
  6. Tap OK button.
  7. Now, whenever you compose a new message or reply a message, your text signature will be included and displayed at the bottom of your message.

I've had meet a user who include a name in his signature. He did it in order to make the message recipient (especially those who haven't added him into their contacts) easily knew who was sent the message. So, how about you? If you use a text signature, what will you type there?

  1. It still won't show a preview. I also noticed after I read a text, my text app icon still has a notification there, even though all texts are read.

    1. Hi Jon Mueller,
      Thanks for coming.
      Since you didn't tell me what your phone and Android version, I assume that your phone is Samsung Galaxy S3 with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean.
      1. Enable messaging preview
      If you want your phone shows message preview on the status bar and in the lock screen, kindly doing the following steps:
      - Open the Messaging app.
      - Tap the Menu key and then select "Settings".
      - Scroll down to find "Preview message" and then enable this option by checking the checkbox in the right side of this option.

      2. Wrong unread notifications in the Messaging app icon
      If your Messaging app icon shows that you have unread message, but you have no unread message, then you can try the following steps to fix this problem:
      - Go to Settings.
      - Tap "More".
      - Tap "Applications manager".
      - Swipe the screen from right to the left until you see "All" tab.
      - Scroll down to find "BadgeProvider", and then tap it.
      - Tap "Clear cache" button and then tap "Clear data" button.
      - Once done, restart the phone.

      Hope it helps :)
