Smilies do you type them into phone texts?

If I am writing on here I often type out the smilie instead :MAD: (lower case obviously) instead of clicking on the icon to display it.

You never have enough smilies on the phone to use when texting - so for some strange reason I have started to type out texts using a typed smilie I would use on AO - Anyone else done this or does this?

Yeah - but also I have the odd one which isn't translated on other phones... for example - so the context of the message can get distorted....

People must think you're mad typing :TUT: etc.

*You know when you say something and then realise how unnecessary it was to elaborate*

People must think you're mad (full stop)

Everyone needs a new phone, every week, as far as the phone companies are concerned!

I'm an other - I don't *type* them, my phone has a nice selection to pick from which is much faster, and I find a well places smile or wink or something often helps with the confusion arising from lack of enunciation in text...
