    They have it but they are more like Droidicons ... When your in text mode ... Hit the MENU button ... Then hit the MORE ... You will see INSERT SMILEY

    Thank.GOD.

    I've had a Pre for a year and will be getting an Evo in august. I HATE the emoticons it throws in automatically. I've tried everything to get rid of them, but cannot find any preware patches or anything

    I love the simple : plus ) ( D P etc, and all I want is for them to look that way... (though i know it also depends on the person's phone I send it to)

    If I undersstand you correctly they do translate ... but into Droidicons ... My friend sent me a smiley face in the typical EMOTICON fashion but it showed in my text as a DROIDICON ... I hope I answered your question .

    Default Smiley Faces

    It seems on the Evo when you send a smiley face, it shows as a droid image on your Evo phone but the receiver phone, it shows as a typed face. I don't know if it needs to be an HTC phone to HTC phone, but the last few people who don't have HTC phones, told me my smiley face sent as a text message on my Evo was up a typed face not a droid image. Have you found the same? Thanks!

    I dont think Android recognizes emoticons that are just ": )" .... it has to be ":-)" for it to actually display an emoticon. And even then, its a stupid droid con. The Palm pre recognized all the different ways of typing emoticons. I still like the EVO better though. I just miss my Palm Pre and the yellow smileys I used to get. sadness. now i'm feeling emo.

    Yeah. I;m missing my palm pre as well. Hopefully, they will have an app for that. Where's the homebrew community?

    handcent does, but the current version has a serious bug that it will not send mms messages. waiting for them to fix it.

    That's because that is how it works. All you're actually sending is the :) not the actual emoticon. It's the software of each individual phone's responsibility to translate that into an emoticon. This is how it works in all text messages, all IMs, etc.

    they show up sometimes but not all the time, is sad cuz this cell is really expensive and the cheaper phones have the emoticons and this one doesn't. only sometimes they show or doing the menu, more insert smiley operation. something is wrong with the program itself.

    Honestly emoticons aren't everything, but there's usually an app for everything you just gotta sit down and explore the market. it's very big

    Handcent has two different add-ons: one for traditional yellow smilies, and one for the iPhone-style emoji/emoticons. :-D

    help me sir please ):

    see all of a sudden i had this option to pick and choose from a set of japanese emoticons such as (^_^) or ⊙_⊙. i have no clue what triggered them to be there, but was really happy to have them (they were not from an app)

    but my s3 had a stupid forced update, and they were all gone....and i have no idea how to turn them back on.
