    I just bought the galaxy S2. When I'm sending text messages i use smilies, and so do the responders. I am used to type smilies like :p or :-$. However, the phone just makes these androidsmilies of it, which i think are not that nice. I prefer just the :p or :-$ stuff. Also the smilies to which they are made are different from the ones me and my friends use :)-$ gets the dollar signed eyes, but should be blushing).

    So either way I am wondering how I can turn this converting off or delete the smilies. Or at least, if this is not possible, if i can change them to the right ones. Can anybody help me?

    Thanks in advance!

    I use an app called Handcent, look it up on the market, its good, got hundreds of smileys if you want them, I just use the standard Handcent ones, they pretty much cover everything, you can customise just about anything to suit your needs.

    yeah looks like the stock messaging app does that. like evohicks mentioned, check out another messaging app, handcent seems to be the most customizable and therefore popular :D Go SMS is another one ive heard is great

    When you send the message and the recipient receives it, he will get the symbols instead of the emoticon unless your both using android handsets. The easiest solution would be to use a 3rd party messaging app. Like Handcent or Go-sms from the android market.
