    This is based on your keyboard... are you using the stock Google keyboard?

    yes I am using the stock keyboard which has smilies on it , they just don't get sent. Would you recommend another keyboard? If so can you point me to how to change keyboards

    BTW if I do :) that isn't converted either - on my HTC desire C it is

    thanks

    Odd... I see the smiley face in your previous post. Maybe it's a language thing, are using English or a different default language?

    "Odd... I see the smiley face in your previous post. Maybe it's a language thing, are using English or a different default language?"

    I am afraid that's not it - these posts are from a PC - the smileys are from the forum menu (the default set) ;):(:mad::p:Do_O:cool::rolleyes::oops::eek::thinking::)

    AFAIK smileys on the phone are only on the messaging keyboard (SMS) keyboard but don't seem to transmit. I have 2 acquaintances with earlier versions of this phone they don't transmit for them either. It's as if the SMS encoding method is wrong - I tried the alternatives GSM 7-bit and Automatic same result.
