[8530] Remove emoticons in SMS?

When sending and receiving sms messages, I want smiley faces to appear as text, not the emoticon.

 

Problem- :smileyhappy:

Solution- 

 

I have searched all around the internet with no solution, and it looks like the smily faces are integrated into the OS.

 

I will try any backdoor ways to fix this problem. Your help is much appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi LukeHampton

 

This feature cannot be disabled and is by design.

 

Thanks

Re: [8530] Remove emoticons in SMS?

The feature can be disabled. Just not easily.

The app "crunchSMS" in the Blackberry App World has a feature that you can disable smiley's as emoticons.

So obviously it can be done. I just want to know how to do with the default messaging application with my Blackberry 8530.

Thanks!

Re: [8530] Remove emoticons in SMS?

are you actually sending this messages to others with a similarly aged phone? i have emoticons on my torch, but i know my friend's curve doesn't show them as emoticons... so maybe it's not as much of an issue as you think? otherwise, maybe just try leaving a space somewhere in between. that fixes the issue for sure, although it does look a little odd

Re: [8530] Remove emoticons in SMS?

I know that the people I am sending the smiley faces too show up as text.

 

But it shows as an emoticon on my phone. And I can't stand it.

Re: [8530] Remove emoticons in SMS?

Well even though I downloades crunchSMS, it does not get rid of the **bleep** emoticons. So don't waste time trying. And, when I went through all the setting changes the app told me to, it froze my phone, and I had to remove the battery... Twice.
