I have a Samsung Gusto 3.  When I receive a long text message, I can't read it because it has numbers, symbols, garbage.  Please help.

Understanding the text message content is essential, jk167 and we’d like to clear up any confusion.

Are you unable to read a specific text message from a contact or does this happen on multiple messages? Can you please clarify what you mean by “garbage” that is located in the text messages?

I asked the sender of a similarly garbled message I got and discovered that they had used a few emojis in their text to me. That garbles the entire message since this phone is not able to decipher emojis.
