As sms is text only, people will get text messages only. To convert the smiley-characters into smiley images, the receiver should have support for emoticons, or have a 3rd party program to translate the emoticons. As most phones consider SMS as text messages, they won't convert them to emoticons...

You could try sending a message to yourself, or someone else with a k850i...Just to try.

send your phone back and get a new one.. that's what I'm doing.. I realise it's pretty academic, because it's a software problem and likely to happen again.. but you get a nice new phone :) haha
