    Okay, so does anyone else have this problem. Emoji texts just being boxes when sent from iOS 5 users?

    I send and receive Emoji characters just fine with other iOS 5 users.

    Just to check.... Your using an iPhone right? And if you are, you have emoji installed?
    Other thing I remember is wasn't there an issue between emoji not sending correctly between carriers?
    Verizon and ATT users where having issues sending them to one another.

    Ok since we are on this subject I have a question. I have my emoji on and all that and it works fine. But I remember before I switched to the 4s I could just use the colon and a parentheses :) and it would insert a smile into the text. Now when I do it it does not. The only way to insert a smiley is to acualy go dint the one you want in emoji caracters. Anyone else notice that?

    That is the forum software, not the iPhone.

    Yes, I am having the same problem. Nearly all of the emojis do not work and appear as boxes when I send them to iOS 3 devices. Most work when I send them to iOS 4 devices, but several of them are incorrect. For example, the red heart appears as a small black heart, the pink heart with the WiFi-looking symbols appears as a pink heart with stars, the three pink hearts in one appears as a plain pink heart and the white exclamation point appears red on iOS 4 devices. Emojis work fine when I send them to other iOS 5 devices

    Europa... Exactly what I am talking about. My sister and ex both have fours that run on iOS 5 fine, they can Emojii each other, but not me. I have my Dino 3GS, still running on like 4.2.3 because it's jailbroken. I like my jailbreak too much to upgrade right now... Plus, Siri in January! I'm so excited.

    Oh and just to clarify, definitely all using iPhones and even on the same carrier! (AT&T) idk. If this the only glitch, then I'm okay with that. At least I always have the option to lose my jailbreak and upgrade. Or rejailbreak. I love those little emoticons. Hmmm I will have to weigh it out.

    I have an iPhone 3GS that I've updated to ios 5 the Problem I have is if I send a emoji symbols to someone who doesn't have an iPhone all they receive is a box, I can't get the Icons from them, and there is no problem when it is between iPhones. This happened when I updated to iOS 5

    LOL! I tried texting my sweetie right after downloading it and she thought I wanted to fight since the message she got was "I box you, do you box me?"O_o

    Now we both have iPhones, so she can now see the red hearts (y)
