It is very important that you do allow Emojitones to access your phone on installation to allow you to receive our registration SMS code and chat with friends on the platform. If you do not allow access to your phone you will not be able to chat with anyone or even register.
If you happen to disallow access to SMS then you must uninstall and reinstall and allow access to your phone to receive our registration SMS code. If you disallowed access to contacts and therefore cannot see any friends in your Emojitones phone book please go to settings and allow Emojitones to access contacts.
This is the same as any other chat app, they require access to your phone to function.
