Emoticons BBM V8.5.0.18

This version was supposed to have new emoticons. I don't see any new ones, however by chance I happened to type " *suspicious*" and a new one showed. How do I access these new emoticons?

I have those new emoticons on my Z30 update.

Try rebooting your Bold and see if they appear.

My phone did reboot after I updated the bbm, but it still doesn't show. Not sure what else to try.

Hello Zainab_desai

 

Welcome to http://supportforums.blackberry.com/

 

There are 16 new icons in this vesion of BBM v8.5.0.18 (are hidden).

 

BBM comes with 90 core emoticons. though, at least on a BlackBerry, BBM has access to about 600+ hidden emoticons provided you know the right code for them there are many 3rd party apps to allow you to access them.

 

=(O)
[-(
=-[
=^-?
*kiss*
*barbell*
*beach*
*clover*
*hotdog* 
*maracas*

 These are some of the hidden icons.

 

Regads.

Really not happy with the update. 16new emoticons should've been added to the list instead of being hidden.

I'm betting they'll be around with another update.
