I’d like to use my one time name change on my other account and name it an emoji (only) with no other digits showing. When I try it tells me the name is too short and if I add a space it says invalid name.


SC isn’t any help in telling me they don’t recommend it cause some older devices won’t be able to read the name. They never said it can’t be done but they are non responsive to my specific requests.


I’ve seen many account names similarly in use, in fact a tf mate has one. He said he can’t remember doing anything other than just typing it in normally.


I have an iPhone & iPad. Any suggestions?

You need to enable your emoji keyboard on your mobile device.  Once you do that, it is as simple as selecting an emoji.  I just created a TF with emojis in the name using emojis directly from my keyboard.

I use emojis all the time in tf chat so my keyboard is enabled for them. Wish it was so simple.

I think there is a combination of a minimum length rule and a rule that a name must conform to some formatting standard.  It appears that the name cannot be all emojis.  I tried to create a tf with an all emoji name and it would not allow it, even though I used 8 emoji characters.

Guess I need to corner the guy in my tf with an emoji only name and threaten to demote him if he doesn’t cough up the info.  Maybe letters are actually there but he’s using invisible font. Looks like another unexplained phenomenon in the bb archipelago designed to drive me crazy. 🤪
