I just got the droidx for me and my wife for Christmas. I have only had a chance to play with them for a few hours, they are not even activated yet because they are Christmas gifts. My wife and I come from BlackBerrys and she is in love with the smileys in the SMS texts. I am looking for an app that has these smileys or the droidicons. What I want is something that shows the actual icon not the symbol when I send it. I have been doing a lot of reading in this and other forums and Handcent seems to be a good app for multiple reasons. But are these icons (smileys/droidicons) available with the Handcent app? Are there any other options to get these icons? I have basic knowledge of computers and phones. I try to keep things simple I doubt I will root the phones or do other major modifications. I won't be able to say until I get the chance to use them for a few days.
If anyone has any screen shots of the Handcent app with icons that would be appriciated.
