    I know there are several ways to insert smilies into a text, but I'm looking for a faster way. I'm using handcent sms, and in the settings there's the quick action button that says I can choose it for a smilie or to send, but it doesn't seem to do what I want. I was hoping the more I chose it from the suggestion box when I pressed 1 (for punctuation) twice (phone keypad style keyboard) that it would start doing that automatically but no such luck. Aside from the long press -> insert smilie, punctuation on phone keypad style, or going through a couple pages of symbols is there a faster way? I've added the more unusual ones to quick text but it's sadly not as quick as I'd like.

    What can I say, I text quickly and was hoping it could keep up with me.
