Does an emoji or a heart (for example ) constitute an mms message?

Asked by Bb from United Kingdom on 13th Oct 2016

Reply by Pippa from Yorkshire on 24th Oct 2016
It appears so.
My mum has a very basic phone. No data allowance, just pay as you go. She gets free unlimited texts messages, and can monitor her balance on her phone. She sent two messages with emojis one to my iPhone and one to my Samsung galaxy. Whilst she could see the emoji on her screen, they came through at :) to both my phones.
Her balance went down by 25p for the two. She sent one without an emoji and there was no deduction to her balance. Her phone is so basic she can't send picture messages (or so she says) but she was definitely charged for sending emojis.
We were trying this after seeing a warning article in the Saturday times.

You can turn the iMessage feature back on by heading to Settings > Messages and flipping the switch for iMessage from OFF to ON. Furthermore, you can also disable the Send As SMS feature off entirely so that future iMessages will not be sent as text messages if the iMessage service is unavailable.

Do all mobile phone providers charge for excess SMS text (over 160 characters) by charging as MMS or is it just o2?

Asked by Anne from UK on 3rd Mar 2016

Reply by Vicki from Uk on 9th Mar 2016
Hi anne, I'm with talkmobile and they also charge me for sending a text message over 160 characters as a MMS even though there is no picture involved. Very frustrating. Not sure if it's down to the type of phone too as I've just changed from a Nokia windows phone to a Samsung andriod. Only reason I say this is because I never got charged any extra on my windows phone for sending an extra long text over 160 characters but I'm getting charged now even though it's only my phone I've changed not my provider or tariff.

Reply by S21 from UK on 23rd Feb 2016
Some operating systems and phones will automatically convert a text into a picture message for example, if it exceeds the character limit, contains an emoticon or emoji, or if you send a group text. This is something that can happen on any network. On Samsung Galaxy phones you may be able to switch this off. Go to Messaging > Settings > Text Messages > Input mode, and choose Unicode instead of Automatic.
