I have a Sony Xperia Z (C6603)

When txting the emoticons have a - in them ie :-), ;-), :-( etc
In my old phones including my WP the emoticons were :), ;) etc

When my partner txts me :) I get a smiling android head which I don't know how to create on my phone [ :) gets sent as :) ]


Is it possible to alter the keyboard smilies to send as as :) ?
& if possible to use the yellow smilie faces?


Android version 4.3
not rooted

Thanks
Daniel

Sliding Messaging has a setting to do this. Not seen it anywhere else that I recall.

Not sure about other emoticon apps as such, but Sliding Messaging actually allows you to switch the nose - off for smilies so going from :-) to :)
