Is there a quicker way to enter smiles other than menu settings etc?
Other than typing in the characters?
There's a set of them on the second numeric page of the stock keyboard, not much (or indeed any) less effort than menu -> insert smilie. I imagine there are other keyboards with more accessible ones if you need that but I don't as I don't use smilies that often... See.
Yeah I just type them out.
Smilies are just text, colon minus closed bracket.
Try the ime_mod keyboard. It has direct access.

Ok thanks guys
Woooooo! IME-MOD awesomeness!!!
On Swype, you can just swype the smily and out it pops. Doesn't work for grumpy frowns, however! :-(
Smart keyboard sorts it ;-)
It does, you just have to enter them once, select and touch the swype symbol (i) key... ;-)
It's even quicker just to type it out and press space. It'll remember any combination you do that with.
when you say "type" do you mean long presses ? or just tap the keys and the dictionary will automatically interpret it as a smiley ?
Are you guys using the stock messaging app or a 3rd party app like handcent ?
Separate names with a comma.
