How to enable Emoji without jailbreak (Guide)
What are emoji? Emoji are the Japanese version of emoticons. They are the those little smiley faces that you can send via SMS. Here are some examples:
Now, i know that not all of you are fond of jailbreaking your iPhone. So here's a bit of modding you can do with enabling your emoji even with an un-jailbroken iPhone.
1. You need to get an app called frostyplace from the appstore. It cost $0.99, a small price to pay.
2. Open frostplace and play around with it. Frostplace is an RSS reader so it would be a good idea to open those RSS. Make sure to play around with it for a couple of minutes and open the once that has the japanese characters.
3. This will then enable a new toggle for your keyboard settings for emoji. Just enable it. In your iphone go to Settings>General>International>Keyboards>Japanese and turn on Emoji
4. Open your SMS click on
5. Enjoy your emoji
6. Remember, dont forget to hit the "Thanks!" button below this post.
If it doesnt work the first time, go back to step 2 and play around with the RSS a couple more minutes for the toggle of the emoji to be active.

Do you need to be on 2.2 or can this be added to 2.1 ???

Sorry, firmware version history states that emoji was introduced with version 2.2.
I've tried this with versions 2.2.0 and it works, i then updated to to 2.2.1 and it still works horay.

If you update to 2.2.1 it still works, but if you do either a fresh restore or wait to try it on 2.2.1 it doesnt work

What's so cool about these icons? I have them, but I don't know when I would ever use them.

here is an example of how to use emoji.
"you don't like emoji "
this is just an example.

Yeah, but you can't use them in text messages can you? the only place I can think of using them is when you write something to yourself, such as in notes.

It's soo cool, except that the only cool reason to have them would be to text them to others, but no one has support for them So this app = fail.

Are you sure you have emoji on? i dont think you even own an iphone.
With regards to support, all iphones from 2.2 can support emoji even if they dont have it enabled.

because you said you have iphone emoji enable and you dont know how to use it for sms. That was just funny to me since that's mostly where you use it. I mean, common dude, why would you use emoji on notes to yourself. I don't see you missing the fact that you can send it over sms if you do have an iphone and you have emoji enabled as you say they are.
Anyway, if you do have an iphone, im sorry for assuming and it is possible to use emoji over sms and other pips with iphone would be able to receive them.

I really do have an iPhone, and I tried sending an emoji icon to my girlfriend on her verizon phone and it didn't work, that's why I was asking. Also, no one I know has an iPhone. And I did use them on notes once. I used the soccer ball when I made a list of the players on my team.

^this wont be of much use to you then. it only works with other iphone users.

Better yet just get Touch dial Emoji from the app store its a lot easier
02-02-2009, 02:11 AM #16
its a bit more expensive though.

Ok, so now that everybody knows how to enable them cute emojis, let's figure out a way to integrate them on our PCs - Windows or Mac. Except for a FireFox plug-in script which was supposed to display emojis whithin a page, I couldn't find anything.
If I am to copy&paste some smileys into - say - a Word document, they are shown as Chinese/Japanese characters and the font is "MingLiU_HKSCS". And that's the most I have.
If anyone knows a method for us to enjoy the emoji revolution on our computers, please share!
