Question about Text Templates

    Perhaps a dumb question but a forum search didn't find an answer for me. I am new to Android and the S3 is the first I have ever used. I keep finding cool things out about the S3/Android as I use it. I noticed whilst messaging last night that if I hit the Menu button when the keyboard is up I can select "Add Text". At that point it prompts for apps that I can choose from, and one of them is called "Text Template". It's a collection of generic but useful phrases used in texts.

    What I want to know, is if there is a way to add some more phrases to the "text template"? If so, how?

    Well, since there was no replies to this post, I thought I would share a workaround I came up with. It's a bit of a kludge but it "works". I went ahead and added the customized texts that I wanted in the text templates as new single notes in S Memo. Then when I go to insert text I pick S Memo as the source and from there choose the canned response I want to use. It works, but it's not very elegant.

    :rolleyes: In the G3, do exactly this
    1) go to main messaging screen (shows your text history view)
    2) tap menu in lower left > Settings > scroll to "set text templates"

    from here you can follow it intuitively. however, failing that.. next >>

    On this screen it displays all the hard wired texts. tap one to begin your EDIT. add your text and SAVE in upper right. there ya go.

    THAT new created text template and all other text templates are now accessible when you select from the texting function. :D
