How to get rid of “Sent from my iPhone/Blackberry/Samsung etc.”?

You’re writing an email with your phone and it always places this unnecessary phrases like  “Sent from my iPhone”, “Sent from Samsung Mobile” or “Get Outlook for your phone”? Well if that doesn’t bother you, you can let your phone do whatever it wants. But sometimes, you’ll write important emails and you’ll probably forget to delete this sentence below your written text…the result: it’ll look unprofessional. So, how to turn that off?

Sometimes, depending on the phone, it makes a difference if you’re using a separately downloaded app or the preinstalled one on your phone. Some email apps like Gmail, for example, do not send these sentences anyway.

So, if you’re using an iPhone like me and its preinstalled application to check your emails it’ll always send “Sent from my iPhone”. To change that, go into settings → mail, contacts, calendar and then scroll down until you see “signature”. Click on that and then you’ll see the menu where you can either delete the preset signature completely or you can type in a personalised one – your name and contact details for example. If you set up more than one account on your iPhone you’re also able to alter the signature for each account separately.

With Android based phones you can change the signature via the email app itself. For Samsung users,e.g., just open the email app, go into settings, choose your account and then general settings. To deactivate the signature either turn off the switch or select “off”. If you want, you can also just change it to your name, for example.

If you use a downloaded app to manage your emails, go into the settings and look for signature or signature settings. Sometimes you have to choose your account first and then you can deactivate or alter the signature within the account settings.And don’t forget to confirm – that’s needed sometimes!

That’s it!

  1. Can I simply just say what a relief to uncover an individual who really knows what they’re talking about on the internet. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people must look at this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you are not more popular given that you most certainly possess the gift.
