If you've updated the OS on your BlackBerry anytime in the last few months, you've most likely run into the issue of not being able to restore your AutoText entries at some point. It seems that somewhere along the line, RIM decided to change things up and rename the well known AutoText to Word Substitution and kink up things all over. AutoText has a big problem with restoring itself to the Word Substitution database when restoring an OS, so unless you have an old backup of your AutoText, you have to manually enter all the entries again (see more in this thread). To the rescue is the free app AutoTextBackup. The app does just as the name implies - backing up your AutoText entries so you can easily restore them after an OS install. AutoTextBackup is totally free to use, but it is kind of new so be sure to swing by the forums and leave a comment if you try it out.
