Are there any cryptos on this site that use all 26 letters?
I'm just curious. I don't think I've come across a puzzle that uses every letter of the alphabet, but I've seen a couple that use all but two. What's the most letters anyone has seen used?
Don't know of any on this site, but there are some out there.

maradnu, I think you answered the question. Not one of your examples is a solvable cryptogram...
Long ago, Bansai posted a crypto of a pangram in a forum or chat post. Realizing it was a pangram, I googled and found a list of pangrams and matched the letter pattern to Bansai's crypto. With that, I was able to "solve" it.
Another time someone had a forum posting. A young man had boasted of his crypto abilities, so a woman had given him something which he was unable to solve. I realized it was a columnar transposition cipher instead of a letter substitution cryptogram, figured out the grid and gave him the solution.
Interesting challenges both times - even if I did cheat on the one.
i had never heard the word pangram.
I've wondered that, too . . .
This one came close---all used except J and X. If only he'd added "the jukebox of the pool hall."
