Questions and Answers

When I send any emoticons from the hidden Emoji icons, people don't receive them. They either get a question mark, empty box or nothing. What am I doing wrong?

They either get a question mark, empty box or nothing. What am I doing wrong? I'm using a Samsung Galaxy S3.

Your Samsung Galaxy S3 comes with Samsung-developed Emoji. These are a great option to use if all of your friends use Samsung devices since they are incredibly compatible with other Samsung phones. However, since they are Samsung-specific Emoji, some of them may not be compatible with your friends' non-Samsung phones. You can use the instructions in the VisiHow article below to install the Handcent emoji pack and Handcent SMS application, but these new emoji will only work in the Handcent SMS application. If you want to use Emoji that are compatible with your friends' phones in every application that supports the use of Emoji, you will need to install a new keyboard. Follow these instructions to install the Google Keyboard onto your Samsung Galaxy S3, which will give you cross-platform compatible Emoji that you can send to your friends without worrying that they won't be able to read them:

You have now successfully installed a new keyboard, along with a new great pack of Emoji that will work with all of your friends who do not own a Samsung device. This includes HTC, LG, Windows Phones, and iPhones. To access the Emoji on the Google Keyboard, hold the enter key and slide your finger over the smiley face. Then, release your finger; your phone will now show you a massive list of Emoji that will be compatible with all of your friends' phones.

How can I send handset Emoji on my Samsung Galaxy 4?

I can see the full range of Emoji on the handset and can't send them in texts, is there a way to do this? I have heard it can incur additional costs even if it's possible?

Why don't emoji show up in messages sent to other Galaxy S4 phones? They show up all as question marks (and even on some iPhone smartphones too)?

When I send a message, the smartphone says "corrupt file". My friend has the exact same phone as mine but can't see emoji. Some iPhone smartphone will show the icons, but others won't.
