Re: Emoji

If your phone turns such things into MMS then yes.

Re: Emoji

Depends on the texting app you use, using emoji uses a lot of the 160 character limit of a text - some apps will split long texts into multiple texts before sending, other apps can change it to a MMS.  It is a MMS which Virgin charge for.

Re: Emoji

Really on how the app your using shows you, in picture below using Google Text app you can see I have 43 characters left using 4 texts - SMS is shown below send arrow, it changes to MMS if sending a MMS.
