Q: It inserts ? instead of characters to the SMS
A: Go to options-sms and change encoding from 7bit to SC2. Unless you’re on CDMA version. CDMA SMS is very limited and unfortunately does not support Unicode, although email/pin and others will work.
Q: Can I have more symbols
A: You have to install East Asian Language and Input Support in BlackBerry® Desktop Manager.
Those Asian fonts have all Unicode characters required. This applies to 5.0 OS mostly. Older devices may lack some symbols.
Q: Why cannot I see colored Smiles and Flags?
A: Those colored smiles works exclusively in BlackBerry® Messenger 184.108.40.206 so make sure you update your BlackBerry® Messenger first if needed (http://www.blackberry.com/messenger). You cannot insert colored smiles to any other app except BlackBerry® Messenger.
