Start a new text message. Type the recipient's name in the "To" field, and place your cursor in the empty text field.
Type a colon to make the eyes of the "pouty" face. If you want the face to have a tear, type an apostrophe after typing the colon.
Directly next to the color or apostrophe, type a left parentheses bracket to complete the face. On some phone keyboards, you may need to hold down the shift key first.
