Blackberry is not receiving iphone texts with emoticons?
My girlfriend just got an iPhone from Verizon, I have a blackberry Curve on Sprint. When she texts me and uses any iphone emoticons in her message, I never receive the text message (says sent on her phone but I never receive it). However if she texts me and uses no emoticons, the message shows up on my phone immediately. Has anyone else experienced this?

Ask her to try a different emoticon program and see if the same thing happens. I know that other devices won't display the emoticons but I haven't heard of the text not going through at all.
I just talked to her again and I guess she did indeed download an emoticon program. I had thought these were just the default emoticons she was using, but apparently not. Thanks!

- You say potato, I say vodka.
Usually when I send "emoji" to non-iPhone users, the text will display a square in the place of the emoticon...
They normally always get the text though.

It is a known issue. An at&t iPhone and Verizon iPhone can't even text using emoji.. something to do with CDMA vs GSM. I noticed on my Blackberry, none of the emoticon apps are available to users on a CDMA network, they all say GSM only.
