    Emoticons: When I send them from my Z30 to my wife on her Nexus 4 she gets garble and when a friend sends from iPhone to me on Z30, the emoticons I get are all garbled.

    This is only guessing but maybe BlackBerry, Android and Apple implement emoticons differently enough to cause the problem

    No, Google and Apple use emoji. Emoji is a worldwide standard. There may be different designs across different platforms and different roms, but the "character" is still the same.

    BlackBerry is using the outdated 2005 Windows Live Messenger implementation where characters resembling a face turn into emoticons, instead of the emoticon being an actual character.

    Your contacts will always get :-) unless you are sending them messages from WhatsApp or some third party app that supports emoji.

    The problem lies withing your phone.

    But you will be able to see them if you update your OS (only see, not send), and even most of the designs are ripped off from Android.

    I still don't get why BlackBerry doesn't use the same emojis as ios and android

    I'm sure they are slowly implementing them. Very slowly.
