Thread: Unable to send/receive emoji text message on AT&T

  1. #1
    Default Unable to send/receive emoji text message on AT&T
    Does anyone has a solution to this? I used to be T-MObile user, back then I was able to send text messages with emoji emoticons, but now im on AT&T, I can't send or receive text message with emoji anymore. Is there anyway to trick AT&T to let it send and receive the emoji text message?

    Thanks in advanced

    Really? It's always been fine for me, however that being said, I haven't done it in a while, so something may have changed. Can you actually see the emoji keyboard just the message won't send?

    Im here, not running anywhere

    Ok, to clarify, Im on AT&T with iphone 3gs on 3.0. I installed the emoji hack from cydia to get emoji icon, and yes I can see the emoji icon on my phone, the emoji keyboard, I can use it fine on my iphone. But the problem is with sending text messages. When I send any SMS with emoticons in it, it would send normally, and the progress bar went 100% and I can hear the sound of the SMS is sent. But the recipient NEVER get the SMS, all my friends are using T-Mobile btw. The same thing happens when my friends try to send me SMS with emoticons, and I NEVER get them. I think these SMS is filtered by AT&T... Thanks for all the quick responses guys

    Just remember Emoji and Emoticons are two different things. The other person regardless of network needs to have an Iphone in order to receive Emoji.

    Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I'm curious about this issue.

    My sister has AT&T and I can receive emoji from her, but I get a failed message if I try to send to her. I'm on 3.1.3.

    Is it that T-mo doesn't allow emoji to be sent out of network? I'd guess they don't know how to handle it since iphone isn't officially on their network.
