    Sorry if this is a mis-placed post. Wasn't sure where to put it, and I know all the top minds frequent here.

    Anyone know how to manually enter a unicode expression and have it show up an an emoji without a direct copy/paste??

    As in...

    How to make "U+1F428" show up as "??" ??

    While writing with a blackberry?

    Is there a way to like.... 'activate' the unicode??

    There's no way to activate unicode that I'm aware of.

    That said, if you can email that to yourself from PC to your device, you can copy the resulting symbol. Then, you can create a "shortcut" for it. Go to Settings > Input & Language > Prediction and Correction > Word Substitution. Create a new shortcut. Under typing, use an easy to remember 2 or 3 letter code that isn't a word. Then paste the symbol in the second field. Then, when you use that 3 letter shortcut anywhere in an email, text or BBM message, the symbol will be inserted.

    I think this should help.

    Wow. Creative work around.

    Thanks a lot man.




    Too bad about not being able to write in unicode!

    I thought there would be some kind of hacker trick.

    There may be a way that I'm not aware of -- we'll see if someone else can chime in.
