Emojis

I want to stay with O2 but I’ve recently noticed I’m being charged to send large emojis on txt message ; is this right?

Re: Emojis

Yes, because emojis turn a text message into a MMS message and these are charged for.
You can either use a different messaging app (WhatsApp, Facebook messenger, etc) or stop sending emojis.
There is a guide on how to avoid this on the community at the link below:
