Is there a way to make the emoticons available under the attachments tab in the messaging screen? My fiancee has an Android phone that lets her select the emoticon directly instead of typing :-). This option isn't showing up in my EVO. Is this something I have to enable?
I think that depends on the keyboard you are using. I am using Thumb Keyboard from the market (not free) and I have a button that I click to pick the emoticon. I haven't used the standard keyboard that came with my Evo 4g or the 3d, so I don't know if those keyboards even have the option. I thought swipe did. What keyboard does your girlfriend's phone have?
She has a MyTouch 4G and she's using the standard keyboard with swype. I'm using the same thing only on the evo. I did find the insert smiley thing though so thanks David
it also depends on which text app she is using. my girlfriends phone is pretty much using the same thing as handcent and thats stock for her. i went with handcent when i noticed the time/date issues with the stock one through google.
