BB Messenger Display Name for Blackberry Curve 8310
Hi Everyone!!
 
I want to put an emotion/smiley face - or any emotion face for that matter, in my display name on Blackberry Messenger (I have a curve 8310).  I go to the 'Edit My Info' option on the menu and hit the symbol key twice and click on the face I want.  When I go to click on ok I get a message saying 'Colon is not allowed in display name' and am unable to save it.  I have friends who have bb's and they have emotions in their display names, I'm not sure why I am unable to do this.  Is it because they have a different model and phone carrier?
 
Help please!!  :smileysad:

I am assuming they have it under their STATUS not their name. Go to Menu > Change my Status and type it.

I tried and am unable to even access the smiley faces while editing status and when I put the different characters in to see if it will make the smiley face it stays as the the seperate characters.

I have never seen the actual smiley, just the characters. Not sure if there is a way to change it or it is device related. Sorry.

I just tried and I was able to add a smiley to my name. I am not sure why you can't.

That's so crazy! It's really frustrating me! Did you put the actual smiley in or put in the separate symbols of the smiley face?

I just followed what you described in the first post. I put the actual smiley from the symbol pages.
 
It appeared that some of the smiley symbols work and some don't. I was able to add the ": D Big Smile" but not the ":s Confused".
 
Did you try the Big Smile corresponding to the D key?

I did! And the big smiley face and the sunglass face are the only faces that work in the profile. I get the error message with all the other faces - strange.

Thanks for your help!

I just spoke to a RIM data technician and we just can't have the other faces in our display names.

Oh well.
