Emoticons in texts

recently changed mobile from an iPhone where sending messages via iMessage to another iPhone did not charge to a Huawei Mate 20 Pro.

 

Is there a charge for sending these via text?

Re: Emoticons in texts

@conor2209 the key factor is the character count. Below 480 characters and you won't be charged, over that and you will be.

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Re: Emoticons in texts

But bear in mind characters include spaces and the first emoticon of emoji counts around 100 characters.
