Hints:

  2. the first word is I'm

I believe the hint refers to

a smartphone symbol keyboard, such as the one shown here: www.dummies.com/consumer-electronics/tablets/samsung-galaxy-tab/how-to-access-special-keyboard-symbols-on-your-samsung-galaxy-tablet/

However, these are constantly being changed and updated, and I haven’t managed to find one that matches your cipher.

As Thomas Blue pointed out, this can be solved as normal cryptogram with some letter frequency analysis. It translates to:

I’m pleased to be apart of this Gravity Falls family.

The answer is likely

Pines, the surname of the main characters in the aforementioned TV show. Also, I have to wonder whether the cipher meant “a part of” or “apart of”.
