Question

Is it possible to send EMOJI / emoticons characters?

 

Answer

Yes, EMOJI / emoticons characters are supported as part of the UNICODE standard.

 

Note: This applies only to MT messages. Additionally, these characters are only be supported on select Operators that support UCS2, namely Verizon Wireless, AT&T and T-Mobile.  Sprint does not support EMOJI / emoticons characters.

 

Action:

  • Ensure the data coding schema (DCS) used is UCS2, when encoding the messages and that you understand the constraints that UCS2 encoding introduces to the message and message length.
  • See the EMOJI Wiki page for more details: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emoji.

Example:

Refer to the HTTP example below:

 

[MSISDN]
List=+449876543210

[MESSAGE]
binary=D83DDE03D83CDDEFD83CDDF5D83CDDEBD83CDDF7D83CDDECD83CDDE7D83DDC40
length=32
[SETUP]
DCS=UCS2
