Unfortunately those symbols are proprietary system-specific extensions and are not compatible with other non-BB OS-based systems.
The closest to a worldwide standard would be Emoji, although there's 3 different variants of those as well. iPhone implements the Softbank version. KDDI and DoCoMo have their own (incompatible) variants.
