Re: [8530] Remove emoticons in SMS?

This feature cannot be disabled and is by design.

So you are saying that BlackBerry's are broken by design?


I get text pages from an automated system that identifies itself with the beginnig string: FRM:ServiceDesk.  Every time one of those comes in, it shows up as:

FRMSmiley FrustratederviceDesk

If there is no way to turn that off, then text messaging on BlackBerry's is broken as designed, and I need to get a phone that isn't broken. Just as annoying, even the forums here are broken with regards to emoticon handling. I had to use stupid HTML tricks to get the forums to *not* render my first example string as the very broken emoticon garbage shown above.
