    Hi all,

    1. I'm struggling to bring up the smiley/emoticons on my keyboard when I'm sending a message from the Hub. I've tried swiping around and managed to bring up the smiley/emoticons from the keyboard once or twice. But, I have not figured out what the exact swiping motion was that brought up the smiley/emoticons from the keyboard. Please advise.

    2. I can type simple smiley/emoticons with text, such as the smiling face, the sad face, the crying face, etc. They show up as smiley/emoticons when I type them, but as soon as I send them, they return to text form. Please advise.

    Thanks!

    Press the smiley face and they pop up.

    Edit: I haven't found a way with composing emails.

    Thanks for the replies, Ben1232 and dracolnyte!

    Yes, dracolnyte, I am referring to e-mails and Facebook messages, etc. If you do a quick swipe from the bottom of the screen while the keyboard is up, you will see that there is a whole selection of smiley/emoticons that pop up for just a second.

    Also, I haven't found a way to attach photos in a private message on the Facebook app. It always prompts me to share/post on my wall, which is often what I don't intend to do.

    Thanks!

    Would love to know if someone has figured out on how to get smileys when sending emails etc.

    I tried doing the swipe trick suggested with no success at all.

    Don't mind the more conventional method, at the moment, but it sure would be nice to know a few cool gestures.

    if the phone is capable of displaying smileys, it will display. emoticons aka simleys are platform independent

    Depends on the smiley. Sometimes no. For example, the hug face doesn't work with any other phones.

    .... have you seen the hub face when it's not a smiley. ({}) or something like that. Can get #awkward
