    Do you have that setting turned on?'

    It also only shows once you have made enough characters to push the text input line to two lines.

    If after that you still don't see it. Maybe try a hard reset?

    Very weird. Hopefully the hard reset will fix it for you. If not, i'm stumped

    Mine only works in SMS mode, not iMessage. I'm guessing cause there's no penalty for sending a long text in iMessage.
