I made another test with a HTC Desire.
The message should be : ça va plutôt.
The special characters are really broken! I had the same result with an iPhone, so I didn't post SS of the iPhone

If it's operators' fault, I don't know what can we do... I think they won't want do anything to fix that because it looks to be good with major phones (iPhone and Samsung in France).
I'll send a message to my operator to know if they use completly the GSM standard. I think it could take a long time to have a clear response! ^_^'
I've made a test with a simple Nokia phone and a Motorola Beam (another simple phone) and, with my operator there's no problem with special chars. I have the issue only with my Xperia S (and Xperia Arc, Xperia Mini Pro from my family).

As promised, the result of the test with a HTC Sensation
We can see the "Ç" is not transformed to "ç"
And, with the message "Ça va plutôt", we can see the same result like on the iPhone.
The HTC is on another operator... So, I do think it's a Xperia specific issue.

I have the same problem and many french people have the same problem. It would be nice if sony fix it with a little upgrade because I don't want to wait the upgrade to ICS (in may I think) !!

Bad news and good news!
So, I hope it's just a temporary fix and a true fix is planned!

what do you mean official ICS OTA?
first ICS hasn't been released
second it won't be released OTA
the only ICS from Sony at this moment is Alpha and Beta ROMs

Ohhhh I'm so sorry! It's the build 4.0.2.x! A confusion with Android 4.0 when the phone push the update it said "update to 4.0.2.x" so I thought it was ICS
So the good and bad news are still the same ^_^
