    Welcome to the forums. What device are you using? What device is the recipient using?

    I have the s4 active, and it hasn't mattered what devices I send to

    Welcome to the fourms. Have you tried a reboot or clearing the cache in Settings>Application Manager>swipe over to all apps>scroll down to Messaging app. Click on it, click clear cache.

    I'm not clear about whether you or the recipient are unable to view. Assuming the former, try Messaging, 3-dot menu, Settings, Text Message, Character Encoding.

    I don't know where to find this? Recipients can't see them. They show up as question marks.

    Have you tried a different keyboard app from Play?

    Belodion was getting there. It's not in the phone settings, rather open the Message app and hit menu (hold left soft button)

    On my Samsung Note 3, open stock Message app - Menu button - Settings - Input Mode - Automatic.

    Not sure if that's the solution though.

    S4 should be the same if on KitKat :
