    How to get rid of smiley symbol on keyboard

    Is there a way to get rid of that smiley symbol on the keyboard on the DX? I'm a guy and have never used a smiley in a text message before. I don't know why they felt like they had to put a shortcut to it right were the enter button should be.

    I'm coming from a BB and that is where the enter button was on my last phone and that was how I sent text messages. It's pretty annoying that a smiley symbol is there now since every time I want to send a text my initial instinct is to go to that place on the keyboard.

    I just want it removed so I don't include it in any of my messages.

    Thanks

    The stock keyboard does not have that option. I use handcent for SMS and it will replace the keyboard, instead of smiley's you'll have a return key.

    In handcent, you can toggle between the Smiley/return key. While in handcent press the hardmenu key, select settings, application settings, scroll to action key type & make selection.

    If you are using Handcent - you can add smiley's to any keyboard (switch between the return key and smiley faces)...

    I'm having the exact same issue. I just came from a BB as well and I'm constantly including that stupid icon in many of my text messages. I'm not a "smiley face" kinda guy. I'll try some of these 3rd party apps. I read another thread that had some comments about disabling the stock SMS application and its notifications. Can someone post some information about doing that? Or isn't it necessary? Thank you.

    If you download and use Handcent as your SMS app...you can go into the stock SMS app and uncheck notifications so that you do not get duplicate notifications (open stock app, hard menu key, settings, uncheck notifications)...
