    I am just curious how many people indicate in their signature line that they are sending an email from their phone? For example, "Sent from my Droid" or something similar.

    I think it's a bit tacky and unprofessional. It was a little smug when smartphones were new, now it's just pretty lame with so many people having them.

    Especially for corporate email, I prefer a professional sig with my contact info. The one caveat I would offer is it's a nice little "excuse" for typos and brevity.

    It is maybe customized. Too many use it, there is no novel one.

    Agree. However some don't let you change what it says. One example is aol, it always says sent from a droid or something similar.

    I don't do it though I wouldn't be so quick to slap around the smug label.

    This is why a lot of people I know do so, FWIW. Unless you know the person, be careful with the judgments.

    I agree with Kodiak completely: it isn't a novelty anymore.

    I don't know the statistics of smartphone vs. "dumbphone" users, but lots of folks get emails to their phones nowadays, even with a more basic feature phone. The few people I know who don't, are always kind of in awe when I email back immediately, but then they remember, I have the equivalent of a mini-computer in my hand.

    The only place I have a Droid-related signature is on THIS forum's mobile app. And that is more so people know WHICH phone I have... not that I have a smartphone.

    I still use it with my work phone. It does have my normal signature with name, title, contact info, etc. but at the bottom is says "Sent from my Blackberry". It's mainly because I manage a support team and have to do a lot of rapid fire email replies during major issues. The signature is basically a disclaimer for my typos and poor grammar.
    I don't think it's unprofessional at all. It's not about bragging that you have a cool phone (Blackberry != cool), it's just letting the readers know that your email may be short or have errors because you aren't sending it from your desk.
