When sending a VSR that might otherwise be rude, I just add "Sent from my iPhone" at the bottom. Don't tell anyone.

That's my default signature in all my email clients. If the email is actually really long and comprehensive, I just remove the signature. So far, I've gotten away with it.

I used to hate that signature but I've discovered how useful it is when sending a short, terse email from my phone. Nice idea.

It gets suspicious if you write this and you don't have an iPhone ;)

"Sent from my Samsung"

"Sent from my Windows Phone"

"Sent from my $OEM"

They all follow the same pattern these days.

Hotmail syndrome. I'm going to change mine to say "Sent from Google Glass" just for kicks. "This message transcribed from an awkwardly public soundbite"

I prefer "Sent from my phone". Why on earth would I advertise my particular brand of phone?

I changed mine to "Sent from my iPhone 6". People were wondering how I got one =).

I prefer "Sent from my rotary phone". No need for free advertisement or misplaced smugness about a disposable gizmo.

I might start using "Sent from my Pokedex" or "Sent from my Pip-Boy 3000"

I just append ☎ to my signature.

(I know it's a rotary phone. But it existed pre-emoji so renders most anywhere, where U+1F4F1 [📱] doesn't.)

Very clever
