Missing 'Return' button on new android phone

I have a new Android smart phone and the keyboard doesn't seem to have a 'Return' button. Where it would normally be, there is an emoji button. Where is it?


The solution to this question all depends on the phone you are using and the installed keyboard app.

Below are two examples that have worked for people in the past depending on their keyboard setup.

1. Messaging -> Menu -> Settings -> Soft Keyboard Type -> Show the Enter Key
2. Go to GO Keyboard Settings - under 'Input' select 'More..' - select 'Smiley Key Setting' - select 'Off'. Done!

If neither of these solutions work, I would recommend you download and install the free SwiftKey App. 

Thank you for your suggestions.  I will try them out.
