Emoji icon app messing up keyboard?
So I downloaded the emoji icon app for the smiley faces ect...I had to go into the keyboard settings and add the "emoji" keyboard so I could get the app to work. Anyways... After using it for a couple hours I have noticed when I was trying to text some of my letters I hit they wouldnt work. For example I hit "H" and it wouldn't let me press it down and it was hitting different letters and it's like the keyboard froze. So I deleted the app. Any thoughts of happened

I've never had an issue with iEmoji, and have used it for years...i have however had the issues with the keyboard you speak of, where the keys pressed won't be the keys that show up on the keyboard, and it will depress a letter that is a few letters away on the actual keyboard.
I found that simply leaving the messaging app and going back in actually solves this issue (and it doesn't happen often, maybe once every few months or so)...i also wouldn't attribute it to iEmoji because i remember happening before i ever used that app. What causes it...who knows, but if it becomes a problem for you, i would take your handset in and have them look at it at the genius bar.

well its funny because this has never ever happened to me before ever until the day i installed the emoji app. so it just seems a little fishy that the emoji app has nothing to do with it. also, when you add the emoji keyboard under settings and international keyboard ect is the keyboard any different than the original one besides the globe in the corner? if you delete the emoji keyboard does it go back to the original keyboard the phone comes with? a little confused thanks

If you don't want to believe him, that's your choice. But I absolutely guarantee that it is not the Emoji app causing the problem you describe. I had that same issue with my iPhone 3G and I never had Emoji installed on it. Adding one keyboard doesn't not change the others.
If that isn't enough for you, as he said take it in to the Genius Bar.

The only thing "added" by that app is the international keyboard icon (which would be added for ANY international keyboard you added...and is an icon addition written IN apples own software for the messaging app)...the emoji app just adds another keyboard to the list, it doesn't change any dimensions in the default keyboard that you use, nor could it effect the keyboard inputs themselves (IE: causing false letter strikes, etc).
Should you be worried? I mean thats on you, i don't worry about it because its not that big of a deal to me, you might be one to blow your own head off over things like that, which would mean the "worry" level would be different between us, lol.
If you're still stressed out of your mind about it after reading this...go to the Apple store, where they'll tell you that iEmoji is a 3rd party app, and they don't recommend using them for this or that or whatever...and then you won't be able to replicate the issue for them, so there won't be an issue for them to fix, and they'll give you a big friendly thanks as you walk out feeling the exact same as you did when you walked in...
That or tie a model rocket to your iPhone and send it to the moon...that'll alleviate the issue.

I had that issue before also. It was caused by the emoji app....well not the app specifically, but the swap between keyboards. It only happened if I was typing really fast and switching between text and emoji. If I swapped back to text too fast after putting in a smilie or whatever, typing would be screwed up (typing an a would get you a d, for example).
Killing the message app and reopening would fix it.

so if i deleted the emoji app i downloaded and then removed the emoji keyboard from the list so the only remaining keyboard is the default one which is "english" is the emoji deleted off my phone so i wont have this problem anymore? I just want any emoji concerns off my phone. i want to make sure i have the default keyboard in my phone. how do i make sure of that?

And then when it does it again after you delete it, you'll at least KNOW for yourself that it wasn't emoji, lol.
