I just want to ask, why hasn't the iPhone received a set of "standard" emoticons to be used on the default keyboard? A great number of people have found ways to install the Japanese Emoji icons onto their devices so it just really surprises me that there isn't a set of emoticons made specifically for the US and other countries.

What I'm trying to say is, I wouldn't mind seeing this ": )" show up on my iPhone as a certain smiley guy symbol. The Japanese emoji do not show up on any other phone besides the iPhone so that doesn't help much.

I know this isn't a big deal but it would be a nice addition and the large number of non-Japanese iPhone users installing emoji is a testament to that.

My girlfriend even has a 4 year old cell phone that makes characters such as ": )" turn into a smiley face symbol so where's the love from the iPhone? lol.

And before I'm flamed, again, I know that this isn't a big deal and also that the iPhone doesn't do everything, but if emoji is available for Japanese users than I wouldn't mind having my own American set that can be used with other cell phones.

Here is the place to ask Apple to do what you want:

.. no reason to apologize. It's reasonable to ask since one would assume iChat conventions would be available under iPhone text'ing. Never mind the pencil-necks that respond with a back-handed answer.
