but this only happens with iPhones? when I've had nokia or android phones they just work no matter who sends them to you or who you send them to it only seems to be iPhones that have all these weird quirks?
Thats because emojis are not text like '' but they are symbols.Text is converted to their native smileys.Say i send a '' to an android,i get to see the emoji smiley,but the android sees it like a android robot smiling.
