OMG I'm in love with the Emoji keyboard
Just when I thought my new 4S couldn't get any better, I discover the built-in Emoji keyboard. Where has this phone/OS been all my life?!
In case anyone doesn't know how to enable it, here's a link to a quick tutorial : Standard Emoji keyboard arrives to iOS 5, here's how to enable it | 9to5Mac | Apple Intelligence

- It's not just for the 4S. It's part of the IOS5 upgrade, and yes it is great.
Sorry! It most certainly is an iOS5 feature for all

From the link in the first post:
To enable the standard Emoji international keyboard, go to the Settings app, navigate to General > Keyboard > International Keyboards and tap Add New Keyboard… From the list of international keyboard layouts choose Emoji.

It works great on my VZW 4S, but when I sent any to my wife's VZW Thunderbolt, they all come up as squares. They appear to be the same Emoji icons that Handcent uses, but they don't go across to that phone on the same carrier?

Looks like according to this, Apple changed the way they encode Emojis between iOS 5 and iOS 4. So I guess until Handcent updates it to be compatible, it'll just show up as a bunch of squares.

Emoji support was ALWAYS available in iOS (formerly known as iPhone OS). View of Emojis was possible all over the world, while the input keyboard was activated in Japan only. But there were several apps in the store to activate the keyboard in non-japanese countries. I think it is pretty strange that there are people in this forum who didn't know this. Anyway, in iOS 5 it is no longer necessary to use these apps.
The reason for the mentioned problems is probably that certain carriers do not support the full range of UTF-8 in SMS. I don't think, Apple changed the codes for the used Emojis in iOS 5.
