I've searched through the last few years of this forum and have found people with the same problem, but not a solution. When people send : ) (minus the space), it shows up as txt instead of an graphic icon. Anybody know of a way to force Android (trying Go SMS) to show it as a smiley icon? Or any txting apps that will do this? When people send , it shows up as a graphic icon. Thanks in advance for any help.
