Yes , Android {Hence the tattoo} supports Smileys

Rather cute Android themes Ones I might add {i.e a Smiling smiley will be a little green android Smiling}

I wouldn't call it a minor inconvenience when all my friends don't use that "nose".

Hi! I was given an NTC Hero recently & I don't know why some smileys I send appear on other fones as "smileys" while others appear as typewritten characters OR :'( etc. Why is this?

Well, I would imagine that it depends on how the other phones parse the characters. When you send a smiley, all you're really sending is the characters that make up the smiley. If the destination phone happens to parse the combination of characters you sent as a smiley, that's how it will show up. If it doesn't, then all the phone's owner will see are the individual characters. For example, you may send :) which might appear as a happy smiley on some phones, but other phones may only parse :-) as a happy smiley so instead of seeing the smiley they'd just see :)

Hey r00n

No , these smiley's are on their by default on Android. I don't think it is possible to Download alternatives or change them without ROOTing. But with ROOTing and following certain steps you may be able too. {Sorry but I don't know the instructions of how to do this or if it is really possible}

I have a tattoo and as far as I know no one found out how to do it.... replacing the green little things with normal smileys will already help.

Why do you need to replace them - unless the recipient has an Android phone, they only see a normal smiley anyway.
