    If you want to be pure, you put it this way: "P.S." Don't forget points after P and S.

    In common language they use "З.Ы." as the way cyrillic letters are arranged according to latin ones on the generic keyboard (P.S.). Always use P.S. and you won't get misunderstood.

    Yes!
    Р.S. Мой телефон 123-45-67

    Р.S. - shold be read as постскриптум.
    Р.S. is used only as a sing of Post Scriptum.
    In another places word постскриптум shold be used.
    for example:
    В постскриптуме он приписал свой телефон. - right
    В P.S. он приписал свой телефон. - wrong

    З.Ы. - is popular computer erratum. It also intentionally used when people lazy to switch keyboard layout


    Р.S. sometimes can be translated as приписка
    В приписке он сообщил свой телефон.

    (Do not confuse приписка with писка )
