    i was told from a friend that had an Android phone that she was able to see some kind of faces when i emails a :) to her. I am not able to see any of that stuff on my phone. Is there some kind of setting that I need to do. I have a Droid X.

    Those A.droid guys are available in gtalk but I don't know where else. I don't think they work for gmail and texting.

    Not available for gmail.

    Just txt and gtalk.

    Should be on the bottom right of your keyboard when in text or gtalk.

    They work for texting, at least for me. On the default keyboard there's a button for the smiley android guy, and if received a few other ones too (kissy android, sad android, etc.) Oh btw, I don't know if this makes a difference, but I have a D1. :)

    EDIT (New Information): they clearly don't work in the DF app. Haha. But try it in texting at least. I know it works there.

    That seems awful odd.

    I've never not gotten the smiles.

    What messaging app are you using? If the characters don't match what the app has as the emoticons then it won't interpret them properly. I.e. if the app interprets :) as the smiley face then:
    Code:
    : -)
    :)
    or any other variation won't be interpreted properly.

    no droid emoticons

    We just got a droid 2 and were looking for the droid emoticons. the first droid i had would send these alien-droid like symbols instead of just plain smileys. they seem to not be a part of the droid 2 or can i turn them on somewhere?

    Any help would be appreciated, thank you.:)

    Little Green Men

    The green bots were available on the original Droid TEXTing app. Sadly, they are no longer available on Droid 2/X SMS app.

    Not all is forsaken. The D2/DX stock email client (pictured below), does have our beloved green bot emoticons.

    Hope you're having a wonderful start to 2011, Hookbill!

    Adieu for now. Gotta go. Someone is having a fit on XDA.
