    If you were slightly disappointed when Apple introduced iPhone 2.2, giving exclusive Emoji-love to all those Japanese iPhone users, you may be in luck. A 99c/59p application has been discovered which when installed actually unlocks the Emoji keyboard on iPhone OS …

    [Edit] - It seems you can delete the app after enabling Emoji.

    Twitter user @Zyber17 has discovered a hole in 2.2. Not just that, but an weirdly-named application currently on the store, selling for a measly 59p actually harnesses the ability to (accidentally) unlock the Emoji keyboard within iPhone OS 2.2. Here’s what you do:

    Buy the application, play with it for a few minutes, then quit it and navigate to: iPhone Settings > General > Keyboard > Japanese. You will now see an ‘On/Off’ option for Japanese Emoji!

    Basically, we advise you to pick up this app as quickly as physically possible,
    if you want Emoji on your non-Japanese iPhone or iPod touch.

    ...and yes, the app is disguised as an RSS reader.

    and for the price of 0$ you have the same thing in cydia... But I guess this is good for 2G ipod touch users while waiting for the jailbreak

    Many people can't see the appeal of jail-breaking. For the sake of 60p,
    it's pretty great. The full method is now outlined at RazorianFly.com/Emoji.
