Please Login to Remove!

so if i text a message and inserts a smiley like
i see the graphic but my recipient sees the characters - a colon a dash and a right parenthesis.

That is the BB OS doing that. If she isn't using a phone like a BB, iPhone, Android, or such that automatically changes it to a graphic, she will only see the text.
