    I'm also wondering if it's possible to just have "normal" smilies instead of the Droid ones.

    I would be interested in changing these as well. More specifically I had a LG phone and now when someone not using a droid sends me smilies or the faces that were included with the typical LG phone that spot is just blank. Any way to get those enabled again on a droid? Seems like an oversight to me...make it not compatible with the other thousands of phones out there. Maybe just me I guess...

    That aside, sorry for necroposting, but I figured it was better than starting a new thread for the same thing that has already been asked before. Anybody have any suggestions for a different text messaging app if removing the 'little green men' is not possible? I like the stock text messaging app and would like to continue using it, but honestly they really bother me. It is like they are mocking me every time I post an emoticon. I even try just typing colon, close parenthesis for a normal textual smiley face, but with the autocomplete on I end up having to delete the colon and go back and redo it or else it takes the space out. I should not have to press 6 buttons just to make a smiley face that isn't this ugly green alien WHO ISNT EVEN AN ANDROID! He's an alien!!! PLZ HELP ME D:

    Chomp SMS has an option available to disable smileys all together. Anyone figure out how to replace alien smileys with normal ones though?
