    So my text message emojis are not working. But my BBM emojis work. Any advice/ideas as to how to fix this?

    When you say 'not working' what do you mean exactly?

    I mean I will type an emoji in and it will not show up in any of my text messages at all. That's not normal.

    No, I'm actually typing in the textbox in the actual text message screen to a friend.

    So I tried holding down the period on the touch screen keypad, which I didn't know I could do, but still to no avail do I see my emojis on the text screen.

    I am using the built in messenger app. That's the app that doesn't allow me to send emojis for some strange reason.

    That's weird I never had a problem . I am using textra right now. Maybe try using hangouts or a 3Rd party one to see if that works

    Don't press the space bar or type it. You need to hold down the Period key that has the 3 dots on it. It then pops up with the emoji and other options.

    Tap the dots at the top right and go into Messenger settings. There's an option for Advanced and at the bottom, there's a "switch" for simple characters in SMS. Toggle that and see if it helps.

    You were right and it fixed it. I turned the setting off and it immediately allowed me to send my emojis. Should it be switched the other way though?

    You have to allow special characters on the Priv for them to show up. I had to do that on my BlackBerry Priv, but I took it back and bought the BlackBerry Z10 again, the BlackBerry Priv was to big for me. I get tons of Emojis on my BlackBerry Z10. See ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿ†™๐Ÿˆ
