    Was having MAJOR 3G issues with my iPhone 4. Couldnt get anything to download, complete and total data loss etc... Would format my Phone and use it for a while with no issues whatsoever. As soon as I would install and enable emoji from the app store my 3G would degrade to nothing. Each and every time I would format and then install this, it would go nuts.

    So basically I am wondering how something like this could effect my 3G performance?!!

    Its called Emoji Free!

    I also have a problem with 3g and have installed emoji free. Haven't tried wiping the phone yet but have you restored it recently and used the phone for a period of time without any issues? I don't want to restore it if this is not confirmed (or should I say CONFIRMED?) :p

    I confirmed it 3 times. I did a recovery mode restore (hold the home button down when your phone is off, plug it in (keep holding), and release when you see the iTunes logo.

    3 times I did this and each time the 3G got messed up from Emoji Free!.

    So I take it you are now running iPhone without emoji and with perfect 3g? I will have to try that!

    3G Issues with Emoji Free

    I am having the same problem, and was on the phone all day yesterday with Tier 3 techs from Apple and AT&T. The last ditch effort they want me to do is to do a full restore.

    Now that I think about it, I didn't have issues until I installed Emoji Free. I just deleted it and did a soft reset. The icon is gone, but Emoji is still there when I text....
