Emoticons

Hi All,

 

I'm a Blackberry newbie and am trying to figure out if I can use emoticons with SMS and/or MMS. Also, what exactly is Blackberry messenger and how is it different than the other forms of messaging?

 

Thanks.

Re: Emoticons

Thanks for the response about BB Messenger - no one I know has a Blackberry so that won't do me much good. Smiley Sad

 

Also, what about emoticons using other applications such as SMS and MMS?

 

Thanks.

Re: Emoticons

Thank you for the information it was quite helpful. I just bought a curve which is an upgrade from my pearl which I never used to full potential because I hated the keyboard.  The curve is Awesome I love it and everyday I am learning something new about it.  I found this forum when I googled emoticons for blackberry and I thank you for your information.  Because as you know you can spend hours downloading applications for the blackberry.  I also have found that if you are not careful you will pay for applications you can get for free.
