I don't get the little green alien emoticons in texts on my new X. Is there something I have to turn on to get them? I used to get them on my old droid and the same person (with a droid) texts me and they come across as texts? Any help?
The little droid emoticons are on the phone itself (Droid 1)
They reside in /system/framework/framework-res.apk (Droid1)
When somebody sends you a text with the equivalant characters (whether they are on a Droid or any other phone) the Droid replaces the actual characters with the matching emoticon.
It's possible that the Droid X does not have these emoticons anymore.
I'd have to look at the system dump of the Droid X to see if they are there or not.
