    Hi everyone,

    I am new here (57 years young!) and was wondering if someone can help me with my question! I just bought a new sprint HTC EVO 4G cell phone and love it, however, on my old palm pre I was able to text message some of my friends and sometimes would give them the little "heart" sign at the end by using "<3" which I knew that the symbol would turn into a cute little red heart sign when I sent it and my friends would receive it. I can't find the "<" lesser than symbol in my keypad. Any advice on how to get to it? Thanks, I really appreciate it, and I'm happy to introduce myself to you!

    Warm Regards,

    Lizz :)

    Hiya! I don't have your particular phone, but you should be able to find it by changing to the numbers layout via the button that (probably) says "123".

    Press the [12#] button on the lower right of the keyboard and then when the symbols come up, press the [1/2] button on the lower left to switch to the second page of symbols. Then press the [ABC] button to go back to your keyboard. Or pressing space will make it go back also

    Welcome to the forums :). The Evo comes with two different keyboards now, so I'll give you instructions for both since I don't know which one you're using:

    default keyboard - press the 12# key on the bottom right -> press the 1/2 key on the bottom left -> the ">" will be on the second row in the middle.

    swype - press the SYM key on the bottom left -> you'll see ">" as a secondary character of the ";". Just long press it to get the ">".

    EDIT: ScorpDX beat me to it :).
