Can't you just ask your friends to stop sending you smileys? :smileywink:

Why don't you just send some rude smileys back and threaten to keep doing it until they stop :smileysurprised:  :smileytongue:  :smileyvery-happy:  :smileywink:

Re: Smileys in text messages make me EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE

The friendly emoticons are horrible, I can't guarantee I will not murder someone next time I get a text with one in it.

 

 

Add an option to disable the graphical display of emoticons, they look ridiculous and childish. They also make my "smartphone" appear like it's some gimmick from the year 1997.

 

What bothers me most of all is that I see my messages in a different way than my recipients see them, as they do not get the graphical display if they don't have a symbian OS. Possibly leading to a different interpretation.

Re: Smileys in text messages make me EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE

And you are the first one out of several, maybe even hundreds I've seen in this forum posting about smileys asking them to be removed. LOL.

Almost everybody else wants them put it and finally Nokia gave in. :smileyhappy:

Re: Smileys in text messages make me EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE

I hate smileys too, some are pathetic. I prefer simple ":" and ")" instead of those fancy stupid yellow faces.

I want an option to disable them, nothing more.

 

Oh well screw this, I'll go ahead and modify Symbian 3 myself then. Maybe I should release a version where all smileys are penises.

Re: Smileys in text messages make me EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE

Okay, to gain Symbian source code access and to accomplish my goal I have founded The Foundation For Removal Of Yellow Smileys Because It Makes Me Extremely Aggressive And It Makes My Cellphone Look Like Some Gimmick From The Year 1997 (Official short name: TFFROYSBIMMEAAIMMCLLSGFTY1997)

 

 

I have applied at Nokia as a platform developer with my foundation. Just a matter until they officially accept me so I can finally remove the smileys.

Re: Smileys in text messages make me EXTREMELY AGGRESSIVE

I am wondering though, have you delved deep into the messaging settings to see if there is a disable button?
