    Racingred, if you hit the Go Advanced button, you'll see the smilies. I don't believe you can use them from your BB.

    You can also just learn the series of keys that make a smiley. I have them memorized so i just hit the sequence of keys.

    Or do what ljbyar said.

    Re: how to get smileys?

    If you are asking about SMS messaging, there isn't a way to do graphical smileys in a message, at least I haven't found one. My old Verizon CDMA phone, pretty bare bones, did real graphics in SMS messages. But if you are happy with ASCII emoticons you might want to do what I did. Entering symbols on a BB is awkward, so I created AutoText entries for all my common smileys...

    #g... :-D
    #h... :-)
    #o... :-O
    #s... :-(
    #t... :P
    #w... ;-)

    This way two easily accessible keystrokes and I have a smiley in my SMS message.

    in most cases you can click the track wheel and select symbols, go to the second page and you will see icons (smiley's) that you can select and add to your message. I know it works with pin messages not sure about the others

    Re: how to get smileys?

    I think the OP was specfically referring to posts here at Pinstack. If you're posting from your BB you just need to memorize the keystrokes but they're pretty standard. For example:

    : ) for

    Just remove the space. These emoticons have basically been standardized over years and years...

    Ah yes, I read the second half of the question incorrectly... I realize now the question was about using the BB to post on this site.
