[access-uk] Re: How to insert emotions on a Nokia mobile using TALKS

Hi Ian, I am told that pressing 1 three times gives a smiley face with a
nose, and add the star to get it sad!  So if you want the nose, add an extra
1!

there's a quick way of doing two of these in predictive text.  Press key 1
twice rapidly for smiley face and follow that double press with a star to
turn it into a sad face.  Talks reads them as what they represent provided
you have punctuation turned off.  I use them all the time.

Hi, they are called emoticons - someone was being smart at the time!  They
are included on the insert character list that you are using, but only on
some phones, for instance, my old 7610i, but not on others, so you may be
unlucky.
 
Be warned though, they actually take up quite a surprising number of the
characters that you are allowed per message - take a look at the number of
characters remaining before and after you add an emoticon to a message, I
was very surprised.  I can't remember how many it is, as it's a while since
I used them...
 
All the best,
Barry

No I'm not kidding. Unless there's a third party application, the only way
to insert emoticons is to use the select symbols list. To be honest, I don't
use them personally, and I ask my friends not to, as it's too much hassle as
you can see.

Chris you're kidding.  Does that mean you have to press the star to access
the menu for each one because how else could you do it?  Is there a list of
these emotions to your knowledge?
 
Thanks, I'll have a play and see what happens.

Jackie, you have to know the ascii character combination in order to produce
an emoticon. For example, a smiley would be typed as a colon, followed by a
dash, followed by a closing parenthesis. Hope that helps.

Hi Guys
 
How do you insert an emotion into your text using a Nokia mobile with TALKS?
I've been asked how to do this and I'm buggered if I can find anything on
mine that does it.  Do you need predictive text on to get it because I don't
use that.  By pressing the star key, it brings up a whole list of symbols
you can insert into text like hyphens and other punctuation, but not smiley
faces, sad faces and winks etc.  TALKS does recognise them when they appear
in text messages I receive, but I can't reproduce them myself, and a friend
has asked me how to do it too.
 
Thanks for any suggestions.
 
Jackie
