Q:How do you make emojis visible next to a contact name on a galaxy s4? I've tried copying and pasting and it hasn't worked. I know there's a way to do it without downloading an emoji keyboard, I've even tried doing that and it still hasn't worked. I can't find the answer anywhere. Please help!
This issue is not with your emoji keyboard, or emoji copy and paste. Plenty of services don’t yet support the unicode range that emoji sits in, and won’t save emoji in areas such as contact names. Especially those that sync with web services.
A good example is Twitter, which allows emoji in tweets, but only a very limited subset of emoji in Twitter names and bios.
Short answer: I don’t think you can save an emoji in a contact name on the Galaxy S4.
Shorter answer: 😞
