    Hey, I am the proud owner of a new RAZR MAXX HD. I just got the update to Jelly Bean yesterday morning. While doing some snooping I found out that under settings > language & input > android keyboard settings > add-on dictionaries there is a downloadable dictionary for english emojis.

    Now, the issue I'm having is when I download and install the add-on keyboard, leave those settings, and go back instead of saying "installed" like it did a second ago, it says "dictionary available" again. I can repeat this process over and over and get the same result.

    However, I also own a Motorola XOOM tablet and after trying this on it, it installed and stayed installed. Now when I type a word such as "cloud" an emoji of a cloud comes up in my predicted words bar.

    Has anyone else tried this and gotten it to work on the MAXX HD? If so I'd love the help, thanks!

    P.S. Just to be clear, I am able to see emojis on my MAXX HD through Twitter and Instagram, I just can't make them like I can on my XOOM.

    Thanks again.

    I have this same EXACT issue. I can see the little android emojis on Instagram and sometimes through text when someone with an iPhone texts me. Has anybody found a way to fix this? The phone has the option with Jellybean, it'd be nice to use it.

    Bump.
    There has to be someone else who has had this problem.

    I have a RAZR MAXX HD as well and have seen emojis via Instagram, Facebook, and even text message from friends with iPhone's. I don't get how, we can't use them but now we can see them?

    Yes exactly. I can see emojis as well via texts, Facebook and instagram. We're "supposed" to be able to use them now with this new keyboard add on and it works on other phones with jellybean. Why doesn't it work with our phones? It may not be as important to others, but it's still a bug our phones have.

    I didn't even know we were supposed to have emoji on 4.1, where are we supposed to enable it? Or is it supposed to me implemented automatically?

    Follow the op's instructions at the top of the page. This is where you enable it. I read on another forum that it's supposed to work. I have no idea why the RAZR maxx HD is having problems with it while other phones aren't.

    I see what you mean, I'm having the same issues as well. That's ridiculous.

    So that's three of us that are having the same issue. It'd be nice if we had more input from others to see if there has been one RAZR Maxx HD that had this done successfully. We have the option to use emojis, we should be able to use it without a problem.

    Exactly, paying $300 for a phone and having stuff that doesn't work properly is very annoying. Hopefully Google/Motorola will come out with an update soon to have it fixed.

    Yes exactly. I paid more than $300 for mine so I want to get what I paid for. Everything on the phone works, it's just that one flaw but one flaw is enough. I want to use emojis like any other android phone with jellybean is able to. Our phones are being left out from this feature and it sucks.

    Welcome to the club. Let's hope there's an update soon that fixes this because at this point that seems to be the only solution.

    But I wonder if anyone has brought it to Google's attention.

    I have no idea. Do you have any idea how we would be able to do that?

    I actually just contacted Motorola via Twitter and they told me how to do it and so I told them the issue and said it's just the MAXX HD's and now I'm awaiting their reply, hopefully it'll be soon.

    I've been waiting for Motorola's reply and they haven't replied, so it's safe to assume I'm not going to get a reply from them.. :mad:

    I did some research on the Motorola website in the RAZR MAXX HD category. It turns out Emoji only works with Android 4.2 and our phones have 4.1; why we're able to view them as out version of Android does not have it is beyond my level of understanding.
