corrupt text messages on Nokia N95 O2

I keep receiving corrupt text messages from various friends and family. They show up in my inbox as a question mark inside a circle instead of the usual envelope icon. I've been getting these almost every day every since I got the phone about 4 weeks ago. I've got a new 3G SIM in the phone from the day I got the phone, but as I don't intend to make video calls I've got the phone on GSM only to save on battery.
I'm getting fed up (and I suppose my friends are too when I text them back telling them my phone won't let me read their message) of it, do I need to take it to the O2 shop and let them have a look?

I did wonder about that, if it was someone trying to send me an animation or something, will get my mom to send me an animation now and see if that's the problem.


Yes! it's the smileys, it's because of the smiley faces in the message. Right, will have to tell everyone not to send me messages with smilies in. grr!

Is that because messages with (inserted?) smileys are being sent as EMS messages, which the N95 does not support? Obviously the presence of the ASCII 'colon followed by parenthesis' would be a very suspicious cause of a problem, but if people are inserting EMS codes then that's more likely.
