    Default Moto X - keyboard/messaging help

    I have had my moto x activated for a week now - when I first got it, the keyboard was just fine but then I think it updated. Now when I receive messages that contain smilies, I no longer get smilies (I just get the actual colon & hyphen, and other character). I have the emojis, but the people I send them do only get a blank box.
    I have downloaded several other keyboards, yet, I still don't receive smilies. Also, even when I try to click which keyboard I want as the default, the google keyboard stays highlighted.
    I am currently using jelly bean keyboard (as the buttons are more like what I want), yet the smilies are still not showing. Any ideas? Seems like google keyboard has highjacked my phone (or at least smilies!)

    Welcome to the forums.
    You can try clearing the cache for the keyboard. Settings>Apps>Google Keyboard>clear cache.

    thank you for the reply; when I hit the clear cache button, nothing happens. Is there another step? Thanks!

    Shouldn't be. Did it make a difference?

    No, and it doens't clean out the cache either (the same amount stays there). I also tried the clear cache instructions from motorola but that didn't change anything either. Any other tips? Smilies are the end all, but to me it seems like there is more going on...

    Are you using Hangouts for SMS? I am and I see all of the emoji's and I can add them through the hangouts menu, which I need since I use Swiftkey.

    Perhaps clearing data?
