    I think any device that supports emoji characters can see them.
    Here are some emojis: (you should be able see these if you are on iPhone, emoji doesn't need to be enabled to view them)

    "whether you use a jailbreak to achieve this or merely some iTunes backup editor is up to you." <--- This is why I asked.

    Source mentions you can edit the plist inside iTunes backup, so I guess its possible without jailbreak.

    How do you do it in the itunes backup? Also what do people on the receiving end of your text message see? Is it the full emoji icons?

    iPhone Backup Decoder

    This will allow you to edit the backup files, but you can't re-encode. Not even sure if you need to re-encode. Not familiar enough with the process. Hope this helps.

    so, any concrete instructions for those of us who don't want to jailbreak their phones? Is there any way to edit the itunes backup without installing some 3rd party editor on my mac?

    Also, I'm assuming once you edit the itunes backup, that you will have to restore your iphone from that backup to make the changes take effect?

    Thanks for the help guys. :eek:
