Default Emoticons for 8900

Please Login to Remove!

Hi there. Sincere apologies if this has been asked before, as I'm sure it must have been. I'll admit I am lazy and only scanned the first page of threads to see if it was there. Anyway....

I got my first ever BlackBerry two days ago and have been figuring it all out. One thing i was very surprised by was the lack of emoticons. Is there any reason that it doesn't have them? If not, does anyone know of a decent, safe freeware app or some way of getting emoticons for it? It's the 8900 Curve v4.6.1.206

Thanks

Check out the BlackBerryAPPS Store, or the Aftermarket Software section. There may be some 3rd party apps that will help with this:

They're available in BB Messenger only. when composing a message just hit the symbol key 3 times. They are on page 3 & 4.

Wirelessly posted (Wohoo! I'm mobile!)

There was a program that was out for a little bit but I'm not sure if it's still out there that was like a shortcut to the emotions but it wouldn't show the smiley's. It was just a quicker way of typing the faces
