    Default 2 questions for those with an AT&T branded M8 (still on stock)...

    Hey! I recently purchased an unlocked M8 direct from HTC and noticed a couple things. Yes, these are dumb, but I'd still love to know the answers!

    #1. Does AT&T stay on the top left corner or is it completely blank of any carrier name?

    #2. When you text and type a smiley like :-), does it turn into a smiley emoji or does it stay like :-)?

    The reason I ask is I noticed that the software upgrades to my AT&T M7 fixed those 2 issues. However, my unlocked M8 does not show AT&T in the corner, nor does it turn a :-) into an actual emoji.

    Thanks in advance!

    The ATT carrier tag stays up there for 2-3 seconds when you unlock it, then it goes dark.

    I use hangouts for SMS, and there if you type or :-) it stays that way. If you put an emoji face in there, it stays emoji (hangouts has the emoji face there on the text input line)

    EDIT- The android smilee above is not how it looks, AC changed that for me.

    Just tried it, and it seems to not convert to emoji. Just leaves it plain text
