In Cydia under tweaks you can now download a program to enable the Japanese Emoji icons. You must have firmware 2.2, though. 

hmmm... looks like the recipient needs to have it as well. I just tried to send an emoji to my girlfriends iPhone that' still on 2.1 & all it showed was a square. Has anybody tested it on a non iPhone?

I've tried sending a few emails- to my outlook account at work and to my Yahoo account. Both showed up with the icons as question marks. I assume only other 2.2 iPhones can sees these icons?

It won't add lag at all. It's a stock feature. ;)

The emoji won't show up on anything but an iPhone with emoji enabled. For instance, Anton used some emoji in the first post, but they show up as squares unless you're on an iPhone.

So it's not enough for someone to have the 2.2 firmware, they have to have the emoji enabled via the hack as well? Well then folks this is pretty damn worthless if you ask me.

No, my friend has a 2.2 stock iPhone and I send him emoji icons all the time and he gets them just fine.

LOL. They are looking at a square instead of the emoji. But I'm sure they are wandering how you made a square. Haha
