The REAL answer is not getting your phone repaired. It takes two seconds to do yourself. Open the default messenger app on the device (The one installed when you bought the phone). (You may have to set it back to default if you changed apps.)

1. From the messenger main message list, select the menu icon (three horizontal lines,)
2. Select Settings,
3. Click the "Advanced" tab.
4. Scroll down until you see "Alphabet Management", select it.
5. Choose "Auto Format". (It will likely already have precise selected).
6. Back out of settings.

You should now be able to send emojis. This should also fix the other apps you may have been using for Texts that saw the same issue.

How to get iPhone emoji on my Android phone?


If you are used to sending emojis in your chat messages, you will very well know that these emojis do not look the same on all devices. But, you can get iPhone emojis on your Android phone.

How To Get iPhone Emojis On Android Phone?

how-to-get-iphone-emojis-on-android-fea-696x464-4zw5k3u5z25sfdctzjyzxtpf-5-0.jpg
The sure shot way to get iPhone emojis on your Android device is to root your phone. Follow the following steps carefully:
1. Connect your mobile to the computer and allow the rooting tool to do the job. The Kingoroot tool will be helpful for this.
2. Sometimes, it may not be able to root some Android devices, and you need to check for compatibility of your device before you begin the process.
3. Once you run the program, you need to follow the instructions given on the screen carefully, and you may even need to restart the system a few times.

Once the rooting process is done, you can go ahead and install this new app that will wipe out the default emoji designs of your Android device. In this way, you will also be able to access the iconography used by Twitter, LG and Samsung phones.

When my sister-in-law texts me, the first one is always fine, but the subsequent texts are symbols and gibberish. They look fine on her end. Any suggestions?


If your sister in-law has an iPhone that's probably the culprit right there that's affecting the receipt of her text messages to your Android phone.

1. If she has an iPhone, ask her if her iMessage is on when she texts you. iMessage is only compatible to other iPhones and not other brands she sends to.

2. Is she sending you text messages using the iPhone emoji keyboard? letter accents? or in a different language other than English? this could be the problem when the different cellular carrier interprets the data and sends it to your Android phone that does not have the same compatible software.

Ask her to send you several test text messages in plain text without accents, no special symbols, and no emoji's. If this solved the problem, then you know what went wrong..

If you are still getting garbled text messages even with her iMessages off, and she is just sending you standard text without any symbols, icons, or pictures.. then it could be another issue.. Call your service provider to see what could be wrong.

i would suggest calling on a different phone so that you will be able to troubleshoot the phone in question while talking with Tech Support

in the US, the major cellular companies are:
AT&T Wireless Customer Support: 1-800-331-0500
Sprint Wireless Customer Support: 1-888-211-4727
T-Mobile Wireless Customer Support: 1-877-453-1304

I have a new Alcatel one touch, Fierce 2 cell phone. I bought it last week. When I first used it, the phone had a microphone icon in the texting area. Now it's gone. How do I get it back so I can


If you good down the comma button the setting menu for the keyboard should pop up. If it does not it may not have the standard keyboard installed especially since you may have added an emoji keyboard. You can select the manufacturer default from the same menu by going to phone settings then keyboard. The last option would be to go to the Google playstore and download the keyboard put out by google. To do this do a search for google keyboard make sure that google is listed as the developer. Once downloaded and installed choose the keyboard from the settings, input, keyboard menu.

Cannot send message, iMessage needs to be enabled to send message? Iphone 4S


Every Apple device can send messages to another apple device. This messages are called iMessages.

When you try to send a message to your son's iPhone your iPhone will try to send it via internet using iMessages.

In order to "tell your iPhone" to use regular text messages make sure that your son's cellular number is correctly stored in your contacts. That way if your iMessage fails, your iPhone will send it via regular text message.

You will see the difference between both because the "send" button and contact name will turn green when using regular text messages and blue when you're using iMessages.

When I send a text it seems that its sending bit the recipient receives a blank text.


Try sending a text to your phone and see if you can receive the message that you just sent and not just a blank message. Are you using some characters or emoticons? It probably is not readable on the recipient's phone. For example, on the iPhone, one can send a message with Emoji but the other models will not be able to view it and instead just receive a blank message.
