    I have quite a few contacts that use iPhones, and they're emoji freaks. Only I can't see them. I've tried ChompSMS+Emoji Plugin and Handcent+Emoji Plugin but neither of them worked. I just get ?=?=?=? and ?=$?=$?=$ and combinations like that.

    Any help appreciated.

    From what I've read and had experience with, it seems to be a carrier problem. The way Virgin does texting right now doesn't support the use of unicode characters.

    There may be a solution for MMS here if you are using a CM10 based ROM.

    Someone would have to incorporate krowley3's mods into that version of Mms.apk to make it work for VM users.

    Does this work?

    Several users on XDA have said it works for messages received from iPhone users, but it doesn't have the mods for VM MMS.

    How hard would it be to combine the two apks? In the sense of having emojis and the mms fix baked into one apk.

    I'm not familiar with how to do something like that so what developers could we call?

    You might ask krowley3 if he has some free time. He's been really helpful with zips

    as far as I'm aware Go SMS doesnt work with the MMS fixes & AOKP on Evo V.

    You do raise a good point...

    I would rather have the simple stock messaging app rather than get sucked into the "go" apps wormhole

    HandcentSMS+Emoji app should work but I hear that a CDMA phone can only send them to other CDMA phones. Same for GSM phones too. It's how CDMA & GSM deal with messaging

    Definitely a carrier or GSM/CDMA thing.

    Emojis sent to my buddy's AT&T iPhone 4 received them but my wife's Virgin Mobile iPhone 4S came out as a garbled mess.

    Lol she's not a hacker/modder like me. I don't really have anything against iPhones (except shady ethics), her phone works really well. Funny how her "I hate Apple" tune changed once it was in her hand haha
