    Hi Crackberry Nation. My niece is using my Z10 right Now after I transitioned to an awesome Q10. She was asking if there was any app or any way to have emojis show up for her when she sends them out in a message or gets a message with them. I have no idea. She doesn't use BBM and her friends all have iPhones of course. Anything she can do? Thanks!

    But those apps wouldn't show the iPhone emojis on BlackBerry devices.

    Stickers++ is just a collection of pictures to be sent through BBM. With 10.3.1 the emoji "situation" has improved and whatsapp emoticons can be viewed outright. This is just for viewing, no way to actually send it out as there is no separate keyboard. Unless your niece specifically copies it from Whatsapp.

    I was just looking into this as well.

    Why is it that some of these " icons " show up when I text (sms) my wife, but some of the ones from my BlackBerry do not?

    BlackBerry did not focus on this as they should have (from what I can see), not all of iPhone's emojis are visible on BlackBerry and BlackBerry emoticons show up as little squares on other platforms. So BlackBerry is just hanging in the middle with this 'feature'.

    Thank you, as I figured, bummer.

    You should be able to receive and see just about every Emoji properly now with 10.3.1 in sms. As for sending them out, I use an app called "Emoji pack pro" where it has all the proper unicode emojis and you just copy it from the app and paste in your message. Kind of a hassle, but I would probably have to do something similar even if it was built into the OS since I have a Q10.
