    I have got my 8520 and on the whole I absolutely love it. The only thing that I cant figure out is when sending an sms I cannot insert the smilies
    The manual tells you to press the symbol key 3 times which I have been doing but it just shows me the 2 pages of symbols for %$& etc.

    Can anybody help me with this please. I contacted vodaphone but they said I had to call blackberry!!

    Thanks for any help

    The answer is no you can't have emoticon on the sms/email. As for the reason, please refer tp this thread on BlackBerry forums.

    Edit: move along, above information is obsolete with OS5+BBM5

    ^ wait phill those icons look newly upgraded and colorful.. different from the standard BBM ones...

    also, has anyone noticed that BBM 5.0 icons are ugly as hell? I miss the old ones, but it looks like they upgraded them in the SMS ones according to that picture? Is it the same for BBM 5.0?

    heres what I mean, check out the green puking guy




    wish i had a pic of the ugly bbm 5 icons that i have on my phone
