I got rid of everything. Who cares where it was sent from?

Also, I don't think using a mobile device is an excuse to send emails full of errors. If you send it from a computer, tablet, phone, etc. it should be spelled and punctuated correctly. Just my two cents.

its incredibily douchey to have. I actually know a kid who placed music notes around it, clearly in an effort to be more of a d-bag.

If you're gonna cry and get all butt-hurt over email brevity then I'm gonna give you something to cry about

I left it on when the iPhone v1 first dropped and I loved it. That lasted about 3 weeks, then I changed it to just my signature.

I read a tip once that you should put that sig on your regular email too and never send more than a one-line email. I thought it was a great tip.

I deleted that sig because I don't want people to know I can receive/send email on the go.

I don't think it's a big deal. It tells people you are not in front of a computer, which could then explain the email's length, tone, etc.

It's great to not be a billboard, but trying to hard to avoid it is just as annoying as emphasizing it.
Life is too short to worry about it.

Hey, the medium is the message. I think it's a big "look at me", but so is the iPhone itself.

Look at all you snobs, puttin' on airs by wearin' shoes with laces 'stead of Velcro and drivin' cars with two workin' headlights.

I changed it to "Sent from my butt" One time a professor sent me an email and it had the "sent from my blackberry" signatured and I forgot to change the "sent from my butt" so now he thinks I'm mocking him

What say you? Is "sent from my iPhone" all right to leave on your email sig?

it's fine, for reasons you already mentioned
