    I have Wp8.1 and when receiving simple emoticons from android they are not transferring into the emoticon.

    only text is displayed. Eg Smiley face :-) is displayed ,

    Is there a keyboard I am misisng or what could be the reason???

    I can however see mysms emoticons.

    I have no idea if this is still the case, but Androids required emoji apps to display emoticons at one time. Emoticon sms app that shows emotes from iPhones? - Android Forums at AndroidCentral.com

    I have no idea if that applied to sending or just receiving. Maybe your friends need apps to send emojis.

    Looking further into my Wp 8.1

    When in the default messaging app, with keyboards up, when selecting the smilyface to enter the emoticons keyboards, the 1st keyboard (right of the clock) only shows text based items not the actual images. So it looks like my Wp8.1 Nokia 625 is missing something. Similar happened on another iphone and I had to download a emoticon keyboard.

    Any ideas how to correct on WP
