No more workarounds needed to enjoy Emoji icons on your iPhone with iOS 5. This feature is now completely integrated in Apple’s latest OS and can be activated in just a few simple steps.

To activate Emoji in iOS 5, go to Settings > General > Keyboard > International Keyboards > Add New Keyboard > Emoji. Once turned on, you can easily switch between your primary keyboard and the Emoji keyboard by hitting the “globe” icon on your keyboard…

Remember that Emoji are not cross platform. If you send them to someone, make sure they run iOS or else, they will see weird little error icons.
