This is somehow crazy! I went to The iPhone Blog and read about Frostyplace - an App in AppStore. You install it, go through the Japanese news feed for 1 minute, close the App, re-open and go through 5 news feed again and close it.

Now to the magic!

1. Go into your iPhone "Settings" -> "General"
2. Under "Keyboards" -> "International Keyboards"
3 Chose Japanese and enable the "Emoji-symbols.

When you type something, and want use the Emoji/Emoticons - then just hit the globe on your keyboard!

Yeah - it cost 0,99$...but I ratter have this installed than something that farts, and yes you can only use it on iPhones and iPod touch - but it still nice to have this option.

I was just going to post on this lol. I got mine by jailbreaking, but i restored and they are still there! My friend just told me about this app which is how I found out. I think iJustine twittered it.

Btw only iPhones/iPod Touches can see the emoji, not computers.

yeah, there was a jailbreak app that enabled them. but nobody else seemed to be able to see them. so i don't really see the point in that....

iPhones can see them even if they cant send them. Before my friend got emoji he could see the ones i sent him. You just have to be on 2.2

One more thing. If Apple decided to update the iPhone, do we lose the emoticons?

I don't have the app yet, but I have read where you may have to go through the steps 3-4 times before it will work.


"If it doesn’t work the first time, continue playing with the app. Be sure to click on a few stories and click on the bottom two icons. Also, I believe you have to be updated to iPhone’s 2.2 firmware."

Arron Hirst, who has a blog on the iPhone, has confirmed that you can delete the app once you get it working if you so desire.

JJ there is an app in Cydia that does the same thing, but you don't have to play around with an app lol. All you have to do is "install" it and then go into the settings app to enable the emoji keyboard. And its free!

Oh and the question about updating, I had my iPhone jailbroken with the emoji enabled and then I restored it and i still have them so I assume updating wont affect it either.

I got the app, I played with it for a few minutes and it worked the first time for me. I also deleted the app and the keyboard is still there, so for 99 cents, its not bad to have it. I blew my wife's mind when she saw the pics. (haven't installed it on her iPhone yet)

I'm on 2.2 and jailbroken and works fine. I opened a few stories, enabled emojicon and now emoticons work with SMS. iPhone friends want to know how I did it. LOL ;)
