    Not sure if this would help, but here are a few things....

    First, if the keyboard is similar to mine, in the lower right portion of the on screen keyboard you will see a key that shows "12#". Tap that key and your numeric keyboard appears. Then once in the numeric keyboard, in the lower left portion of the numeric keyboard you will see a key labeled "1/2". Tap that key and you will see several keys that corresponding to emoticons

    Second, you can usually manually enter an emoticon by using Parsing... :name-of-smiley:

    Example :rofl:

    Lastly, when using the Parsing method, make sure you use the :) instead of :)
