(LINK FIXED) Ok between Me, Natediddy, Mjones1052 and Woodyman we came up with some nicer (EMO) emoticons for messenger they look much clearer on your droid than they do here. these were supersized so you can see them.
These were tested on UDrom v9.0 ONLY. They should work on any 2.1 base but use at your own risk!!
here's a screenshot of the various emoticons we used:
Hope ya'll like it!!!
