Think you have an idea for the best BBM emoticon ever? Here's your chance to make it happen!

We've all been there - sending a BBM to a friend and wondering why there isn't an emoticon that we want. While BBM has a handful of great ones for getting your point across and even more on the way in OS 10.2.1, there are still some emotions we'd just love to have an emoticon for. 

BlackBerry is lending an ear and if you have an idea for an awesome emoticon it just might find its way to BBM. Starting today, you can head to the BBM Facebook page to submit your idea for an emoticon. The rules are wide open so you can submit nearly anything that you think could be an awesome BBM emoticon, be it an angry CrackBerry Kevin, a fancy princess or just a better smiley. The deadline for entries is next Wednesday. 

Head to the page here for all the details. Good luck!

Bring these emoticons back from BB OS 6 as well as when selecting an emoticon you get a description

I sure hope not!

I personally find smilies pretty useless. I'll use the occasional :) :( or ;) in a text message, but that's it. Plus there's no guarantee that the receiving phone will interpret it as a smiley.

On BBM you know the receiving phone will

BBM for iOS and Android apparently are missing a couple of the emoticons that BB10 users have (apparently).

Kingdmen

It's the other way around. BBM android and iPhone can send emoticons from different messaging apps. Example: can send whatsapp emoticons through bbm. By my bb10 doesn't recognize them all.

Now we've truly come full circle. Not only has a vast amount of BlackBerry users requested that BlackBerry have Android abilities this week, but now we have one of the first outright requests for it to have iPhone characteristics. Soon, we'll have the mighty ZQBerryiDroid100 in our hands if you all get your way!...And even then, many of you will still not be happy. Hilarious.

They should have TAT designed their own set of emojis and incorporate them to BBM. iOS and Android users can see them in BBM and BlackBerry users can use them throughout BB10.

Maybe they could add a double tap feature or hard press or something, so after you select the emoticon, then double tap/hard press on it, it would change its size? Of course, would need a way to reset back to original or downsize if it got too big ;-)

Just Me

Bicycle. Give me the bicycle emocon. Been asking for years, there is already a car, plane, and walking, why ignore the bicycle. Did I say bicycle enough times. Bicycle.

Need some pow.

I think the best emoticon would be of one getting slapped when you do something stupid and you can send to that person

Posted via CB10

Better yet have it like a "ping" but make a slap sound and it says something like...u have been "slapped"!
That would be awesome!

You must learn from LINE by Naverjapan app.

mikekeyser

Need the Staples "Easy" button emoticon for the simple problems solves.

Also need an old fashioned "bomb" emoticon with the burning fuse for the difficult problems that need a fast answer

These can both apply to many things.

mikekeyser

A bulls eye target would also be cool, for those you want to stand in front of it...

take a look at LINE!!! .. BBM needs to incorporate the cool thing from here . they are losing out big time in certain sectors of the world !

I would like to see a wide range of little animals. I and my friends really enjoy that aspect of WhatsApp, and I've been saying for a long time that I think BlackBerry need to offer way more emoticons. This is really good news. All they need to sort out now is a wallpaper option so that we aren't stuck with just grey. These additions, and cross-platform Bbm Video, Audio, and Screenshare will wipe out all the other IMs if BlackBerry are able to get it done quickly and and well.

In the meantime, some cute little elephants and lions and tigers and bears would be great lol

Some sports & seasonal tabs, Christmas, Easter, halloween, +other ethnic holidays. If they were all preloaded in bbm but show up based on the phones set language(s).

Also if there was any way of making them bigger, they are hard t see sometimes on my 9900.

Walkie talkie option on BBM would be awesome. Entice more people to use BBM.
Definitely have an unlimited emoticons.

I use emoticons often.....would be nice if they moved like on the pc. A drunk smiley would be good......a smiley for every mood. I would definitely use the middle finger smiley often

Posted via CB10

I agree with the guy before me....bring walkie talkie back but they would have make sure it doesn't drain the battery life. and if they do I don't want to get charged to use it as an extra feature.

Use formula for emoticons, so you can type formula for whatever emoticon you want. Formula turns into the emoticon.

Also, would be cool, reeeeaaaally cool, if one could attach 'sound effects' to emoticons to make them true emotional icons (or, already have those sounds as part of the emoticon)! Like a laugh to an LOL, a moooaaaah to a kiss, a yaaaaawwwwn to a yawn, a buzzzzzz to the animated bee, etc ;-)

SEAWARRIOR

so what do you get if they choose it???

RECOOL

Would be nice to have the ability to copy and past emoticons.add them to current set and just send them as just images if possible,.

CBz1021

Should make one that is easy and simple. Make one for the saying "Texting and Driving it Can Wait." or try to make character emoticon. Maybe put some cars in there. I use BBM daily and would love to see lots more emoticons

They should add a fingers crossed and a smiley face holding a flag(meaning I'm at my destination).

Joanne Peterson

Someone mentioned an animated WTF. I pictured that perfectly! A shoulder shrug, hands up and then a big middle finger comes forward.

Otech#CB

dog, cat, bird. (animals)
City, village, beach. (lifestyle)
Popcorn, chocolate, cake. (food)
cars, trucks, cop cars, ambulances, trains. (transportation)

That's what they're missing. They could really just make the next emoji for BlackBerry. We need that.

RECOOL. Has in my mind the best idea..not dumping on any individual emoticon suggested-they're all good ones (wtf and mid fingerz), but how about being able to add emoticons from wherever we find them and add them to your own personal collection.! And once saved, able to send them out on BBM.

In other words - open it up guys!

Other great idea: ability to animate + add sound.

Cheersa from the oil sands!
