Turning emoji texts into mms

How do I stop my g5 plus turning SMS messages in to MMS when I use an emoji, please? I get charged by my provider for these. The provider, Plusnet, say it is the phone settings that is causing it. My Samsung S4 didn't do this and had a warning if I had used too many characters and converting to MMS.

I suspect the inbuilt Keyboard is at fault.You might have to use a 3rd party Keyboard app that doesn't do it or have the option to disable the action.

 

I doubt there will be an update to fix it Smiley Sad

Thanks, have thought of using a third party app, but can't find information on the ones I've looked at that tell me that they don't change emojis  in to MMS. ☹️
