View Full Version : Characters in messages

Could someone tell me how you put different characters in messages? When some people water, they put rain or water drops, I notice some people have a country flag in their name or other symbols. Is this an application on the iphone? How do you do it?

They are already on your iDevice when you get it, however you must ?UNLOCK? them to use them. To do this for free follow these steps:

Download a free app called ?Emoji Free?
Run the app and follow the instructions
Close the app and go to ?Settings?
Follow these links: General> Keyboard> International Keyboard> Japanese
You will see an option to enable Emoji Icons? do so

Once enabled your keyboard will now have a little graph picture of the planet Earth just to the left of your spacebar. Click on this and your keyboard will change to the Emoji Icon keyboard. Click it again and it will switch back to your normal keyboard. Along the bottom row of your Emoji keyboard you will see a small picture of a clock, smiley face, flower, bell, car & ?!?#?. These are the different categories of icons that you have access to. Each category has multiply pages; just swipe the screen left or right to flip through the different pages and get access to all the icons. It doesn?t take long to learn what?s out there and remember where to find everything.
