    I was texting with my wife and she sent me a message with emojis the other day. Oddly enough, they showed up on my Windows Phone. Here's an image: http://i.imgur.com/FPS2Y.jpg

    Just thought I'd share.

    10:37 AM and 9% battery, either your wife uses her phone a lot in the morning or she is just like my girlfriend and refuses to charge it every night. Does she also complain when it's only noon and her phone is dead?

    I tried not laughing out loud when I read this last night. Yeah, she doesn't seem to see the reason to plug it in every night. She told me that her phone was at 100% at noon and back down to 19% at five or so. So, I replied that I had unplugged my focus at eight that morning and I still had a couple of hours at almost eleven that night.

    I find it rediculous that the iPhone emoji will show in your chat, but there's no way to create the symbol other than copy/paste or by using a third party client. The software clearly supports it. There should be a way to receate it. - tiny rant over :)

    Maybe i'm thinking of something else, but can't we do this w/o copy and paste? If I type *p* in a text message and hit send, it shoes up as a peace sign. Is this not what you guys are talking about?

    You currently need to dev unlock your phone and install a homebrew app for screenshots.
