BBM Emoticon shortcuts
Hi, I have what may be a bit of an odd request on a Blackberry forum, but that's because I myself don't own a Blackberry (please don't banish me!).

What I'm looking for is a list of BBM Emoticon shortcuts/codes, and their associated images.

Although I don't have a Blackberry, most of my coworkers do, and I understand that if I manually type in the shortcut for a BBM emoticons into a text message from my phone (like >:O for the angry face), they will of course show up as the actual emoticon image when the receiver gets it on their Blackberry.

Believe me, I scoured the Google (as well as this forum) to try and find a list of these myself, and I couldn't find anything but loads of forum posts and FYI topics regarding mostly BBM software updates and inquiries on customizing emoticons.

Anyway, does anyone know of a good place to get a list of these? I'm not sure exactly which Blackberry model my coworkers have, but from what I understand, most BBM emoticon codes don't change with software updates, but new ones occasionally become available. Is this correct?

Thanks for any help!

Welcome to the forums.

Here is what a Google search found for me:

Actually, that was the closest thing that I did find to a good list during my initial search! The only reason I didn't stick with it is because I'm pretty sure my coworker's phones have more than those ... if I'm not mistaken, they had one for "drink" or something (it was an image of a beer mug), among other things.

Also, I'm hoping to get a list that includes images, so I can print it all onto a small card to put in my wallet. :smile:

But thanks very much for the quick reply; I do appreciate the help!

I just threw this together really quick. It might not look the best, but it should be what you're looking for.
