    True, I understand - but if both are Pre's running 1.1.0 WebOS, does this make sense?

    I hope they add an emoticon button in the messaging app, rather than scroll down all they symbols...

    Emoticons are now fixed through the Help option. Now if there was just a quick way to link that document to the launcher?

    Edited: erm nevermind. I will add all to one file then anyone can choose.

    Edited: Ran into some problems
    While the named icons (e.g. :mad) are nice because they are easier to pick, if that results in what's sent in the text message then they may not be ideal. I suspect that fewer recipient phones will be able decode them than the ascii emotes. It would be nice if there were a table that popped up showing emoticons and names side-by-side.

    A little off topic: A friend of mine has that Sanyo texting phone that Sprint is pushing (sorry I can't view sprint web site to specify the model number here). It sends the emoitcons as ascii emotes and encloses every single one between < and >. They show up great on her screen but absolutely everyone she sends them to just sees something like: <;->> and none of our phones replaces the sequence with the emoticon. It was very confusing when she first got the phone.

    When we told her she was so upset. Now she just types out smilies.

    Agreed gfunk! I never cared about seeing visualizations of the emoticons as I typed them. I just used the pop up box because I never had any interest in making the effort to memorize all the symbol combinations. ARGHHH!!!! If I were Palm I would've left this as an undocumented feature until they put together a pop up menu.
    ROOTING for WebOS makes me more sympathetic to Cubs fans.
