Whenever I use emoji in the latest beta version of SwiftKey the first emoji always uses up 92 characters of my text message. After that emoji 's only take up 1 to 2 characters. This wouldn't be a problem normally as I have unlimited texts, but my phone turns extra long messages into MMS messages which I have to pay for.

Anyone else have this problem and now a work around?

Have figured it out. You have to go into SMS settings then under 'text input' scroll down to input mode and choose 'unicode' or 'gsm alphabet'.
