Questions and Answers

For the Samsung Galaxy S4 how do you make the smiley face that popped up in my keyboard (and then can expand to get various Emoji's) return in the standard message program?

In my Samsung Galaxy S4 when I first set up my messaging it came loaded with a little smiley face- which I could than expand to to get Emoji's. They disappeared. Now it looks like my option is to download various apps to get the same feature. Any idea how to get that face back into my keyboard for the standard Samsung messaging program?

Adding emoji options to Samsung Galaxy 4?

Currently when I text, I can click the menu button (lower left) and choose "Insert smiley" which brings up a menu of emoji that pretty much all look alike - a little green alien head! How can I add all the little symbols and detailed emoji that I see in the texts I receive from others?

When writing text messages the emoji isn't at the beginning its the attachment sign?

A sign like a paper clip and I can't get rid of it. I have tried: Looking online and at settings but can't resolve. I think it was caused by: Not sure I used to be able to use Emoji so I must have changed something

I actually have a different problem with my phone. I added a SIM card to the phone but can't seem to get files to move over to it, so I don't have sufficient memory to download/install new apps. Can you help on this?
