    .. Only WP owners can see it!

    Is it just me?
    Tested all color emoticons with my brother's android and he can't see them. Not even a box we used to see when iPhone emots were sent to us in wp7.

    What's the point of using all these emoticons if I cannot show it in my texts!

    Some of the icons go through to what iOS equivalents are according to my husband, and when he sends me some (i.e. the cat icon from iOS) i get the equivalent on my L920.

    sounds like it's an android thing.

    I might have to bombard my friends on different OS with a few emoticons every now and then and see what works and what not because some sentences really make sense only with those faces at the end :P

    It's just you. Any I send to iPhone or Android users see exactly what it is.

    iOS supports the full range of icons. Though, not all of them are in color for us. However, few Android devices support these natively. Obviously, through third party solutions they all can install a new SMS client and enjoy them. But, out the box, only WP8 and iOS supports it universally.

    I've never seen a single emoticon that my best friend includes in texts to me on my iPhone. Then again, I don't have an emoticon app installed...

    Yeah we always knew that iPhone emoticons don't work on WP and many webpages etc where we see a box instead of smiley.

    But in WP7 whatever emoticons we had - were visible across platforms.

    Not anymore. WP8 emoticons, all the additional ones aren't visible cross platform. So doesn't really make sense to not even display a box so that other person knows there is something they can't see. It just excludes that character from your message!

    Stupid question, but do you have text messaging set to use the reduced character set? It should be on full for all of them to work.

    I haven't had any issues sending any of the WP8 ones to iPhone users.

    That's in settings right?
    It says Full on my settings. So I am hoping that's how it sends too.

    When you say you've sent emoticons to iPhone, what ones did you use as such? I used the one with yellow face and lots of sweat - second row, second emoticon, second page.

    I used a couple of the random animal ones, I think it was monkeys.

    Yeah... I always tell my friend not to bother with the emoticons since I can't see them, but she doesn't listen, lol :P It'll all be good when I get my 810, though.

    My iOS friends can't see most of the emotes I send them. Only the basics, like :) ;) :(

    Not sure what to tell you, mine shows up perfectly on every iPhone & I see theirs perfectly. Should be noted that everybody I know with an iPhone has a 4S or 5.

    On a side note, my 900 saw all of them too, they just weren't in color. And, I could send them back using WPCentral's cheat sheet or the emoji app from the store.
