Hi all, bit of an odd question but I've searched far and wide across these forums and many others and found no solutions, so this seemed a logical next place to ask.
In the default messaging app, the android emoticons appear when triggered by the text [:)] but not by [:)]. The problem I have is that many of the phones my friends use send the [:)] text by default, and this doesn't trigger the app to display an emoticon, which is slightly frustrating. Vice versa, when I send an emoticon to a friend, it does it in the [:)] formatting, which doesn't trigger the image on their phone. Is there any way to alter the default MMS application so that it will display the android emoticons in conversation with the [:)] style of text to trigger it? And likewise, get it to insert emoticons in the [:)] style of formatting? I assume it might involve editing the .apk in /system in some way?
Thanks in advance, you guys rock!
