Where are you seeing them? Is it your browser, or SMS app?

4.0.3 hasn't been pushed out to the general public yet (meaning I don't have it). That being said, I didn't see anything in 4.0.2 that would allow a user to toggle the green faces. Are you open to replacing it with something third-party?

I can tell you how to change them, but it requires root, a root-only app, and replacement smileys. If you are willing to do that, I'll detail how to do it. I changed my own smileys the other day from green ones to blue ones.

Just use another SMS app which allows you to toggle how the smileys look, like Go SMS Pro.

The same thing happened to my SMS texting after my upgrade to ICS 4.0.3. The Android robot smileys in stock texting have changed from the cartoon type robots to just plain green silhouettes, which is pretty useless as the "emotion" is really hard to see.
My phone isn't rooted and I don't really want to start using another texting app, I was just wondering if anyone had an idea why this would happen and if it's likely to be fixed in future updates. I know the smiley faces have no bearing on the performance of my phone, but it was a feature I liked using and was perfectly happy with until my upgrade, and its bugging me that the upgrade has made something I liked worse than it was.

Notsure change smileys?

New to Samsung S2 this February, there was an update I've lost my cute little "monster" smilies / icons, which I loved after using BB for last 6 years.
Is there way to get them back, not techie minded at all and did try a factory re-set but it didn't change them back?
Or is there a way to un-do the software update?

Angry Ditto Those Thoughts

I agree. This was one area in which ICS took a real step back from GB. Those ICS emoticons look like something from Apple IIe's & Commodore 64's back in the 80's.

I had complained about the little land mines (green non emotional men) with my Galaxy 3, and you're right not a upgrade but something from Commodore 64 lol sad they lost all the effectiveness they should have.

slightly off topic but, i use both iphone and android in japan, but earlier this year the softbank iphones all lost smiley functions due to an ios update. they were totally gone for several months until the bug was fixed.
that was quite a nightmare but it also forced me to get new smiley apps and now i can use the both.
i guess what i want to say is, an update can be a step backward for the stock settings but a step forward in app sales
