    How do i enable emoji icons? I tried installing emoji patch from Cydia but it gives me a source error when i hit install.
    SSHing and going into the com.apple.Preferences.plist doesn't seem to work either
    I opend the file with plist editor and ther's no KeyboardEmojiEverywhere entry that i could turn on by writing true
    Sending those 27 cards in my address book is not what i want either.

    Please anybody help

    A search would have found this thread. And you have to add the entry, it's not there by default. Others have even created a modified plist for you, also included in the aforementioned thread.

    I tried adding these icons and found it to be a big so what. Almost no one I SMS could see them so they saw a small square. biteSMS has emoticons and if the recipient can't see the graphic, they at lease see the txt equivalent.

    Try Cydia again in a few. This happens to me occasionally.
