How to enable Emoji (emoticons) or other language keyboard on iPhone iTouch or iPad

This will guide you on how you can add Emoji or other language keyboard on your iDevice without having to jailbreak it nor having to buy an app from the AppStore.

NOTE: You must have iOS version 4.0 or higher to make this possible. Older iOS may or may not have this feature (though I'm not sure of it).

Here are the simple steps:

  1. Go to Settings>General>Keyboard>International Keyboards>Note: On General screen, you have to scroll down to see Keyboard (it's 3rd or 4th from the bottom)
  2. Tap Add New Keyboard...
  3. Look for Emoji or the language that you want to add to the keyboard (e.g. Russian), then tap on it
  4. You will see it add up to your Keyboards list which means it's ready to use
That's how simple it is.

Watch the video below.

If ever you changed your mind and want to remove a certain Keyboard language, do the following steps:
  1. Go to Settings>General>Keyboard>International Keyboards>
  2. Tap Edit button (top-right corner of the screen)
  3. Tap the negative button on the left side of the language you want to delete
  4. Tap Delete and you're done.

how do i get my touchpal emoji keyboard wotking again

OK, lately touchpad has being having problem with their app, even if you get the emoji, when you tap an emoji, you will get a totally different one. My recommendation is for you to download any other third party app for keyboard, it could be LG, Swift, etc...
I personally use SwiftKey.
