The title says it all. I only use my HTC Android phone, no computers except pi's for miners. I need to know how to sign a message using my android bitcoin wallet address on my phone.

Thanks

Signing messages ist not implemented in Bitcoin Wallet. You can only sign transactions.

Signing a message isn't supported by your client yet. You'd need to export the private key for the Bitcoin address you need to sign a message from and import it into another client that supports signing, such as electrum or bitcoin core. I'm not sure if there are any Android clients that support signing yet.

I'm not too familiar with Bitcoin Wallet for Android so I'm not sure how you'd go about exporting it.

How would I sign a transaction?

Signing a transaction is essentially sending Bitcoins.

I have private messages disabled. Send me an email instead. My contact details can be found here.

Signing a transaction is essentially sending Bitcoins.

Just found you can sign a message with the Mycelium Android wallet. Just click on "keys" tab and select the address you want then click "sign message". It's quick and simple and has share link and copy to clipboard button.

there is also a schildbach->mycelium importer for your key, if you need to sign a message with a key that was part of the wallet.
