Once you've set up your new iPhone 5 and downloaded a few epic games to dominate — the next step is to enable your Emoji Keyboard so you can start texting and emailing with real symbolic emotions.
The Emoji or Emoticons icons are really simple to activate if you know exactly where to look in order to turn them on.
Open your Settings app > scroll down and select International > select Keyboards >then Add A New Keyboard > scroll down and select Emoji.
Close Settings and then access the new Emoji by selecting The Globe on the right of your numbers key  using an iMessage text or email. You'll discover multiple rows of Emoji to choose from including gay and lesbian couples in iOS 6.
Even though some consider Emoticons to be an annyoying habit — I think they are an iPhone essential.
