    Those are emojis, I believe BB supports them and they're called Fancy Smileys.

    EDIT: Are you familiar with the sideloading process? the same emojis are available on Android and if you want to sideload you can. There are many folks here who do sideload and APK grabs.

    Emoji support was added in 10.2 for viewing them. Apparently support for sending them will be added in the future.

    IPhone didn't have this built in until iOS 5 or 6. Before then, one had to download an app and then turn it on in the keyboard settings. In time it'll come.

    Sure, it took a while before the emoji keyboard was part of iOS through the settings (instead of activating it through an application), but at least they had the ability. It doesn't even exist in BlackBerry 10, so they're at least 5 years ahead of the game.

    Also, not supported on BlackBerry Z10, 10.2.1.2273.

    So, the idea that 10.2.1 supports emojis, even for just viewing, is incorrect.

    Facebook and Twitter are their own apps that can read the special characters within it.

    I actually don't use either if those.

    I use SMS between myself and my wife, and her emojis show up as 2 question marks inside diamonds on my screen.

    Once they can be seen in SMS, then we know the OS can read them.

    In 10.2.0 some would show up for me in sms. Since I upgraded to 10.2.1, they stopped working all together.

    Let's hope a more complete implementation is in the works.

    I really hope these feature comes. Because it's a huge communication obstacle if the other person is a heavy emoji user. Can't get the full effect of their intended message.

    yeah I was gonna say I'm on Z30STA100-3/10.2.1.2180 and I don't get any of them, not sure if it makes a difference but I have special characters enabled. Via text anyway.

    My wife only just last week added the emoji keyboard option on her iPhone, so I never had the chance to see them when I had 1055 on my phone way back when. Wow, it seems so long ago now.

    How are you receiving those? I am not interested in sending them, but being able to receive them would be nice, because we just get an unknown character instead of these icons/pictures. Or maybe only if BB has corresponding character, it will display, otherwise it is a big questionmark icon.
