Series 40 web apps version 1.5 brought support to SMS URI scheme. SMS URI scheme used in Series 40 web apps follows RFC 5724 specification. Clicking a SMS link in a web app will open the default SMS editor rather than sending message directly to recipient.

SMS URI scheme

SMS URI is easy to construct. Formal definition can be found in Section 2.2 of RFC 5724.

<a href="sms:+3581234567">One number, no body text</a>  
<a href="sms:+3581234567,+3582234567">Two numbers, no body text</a>
<a href="sms:+3581234567?body=hello%20world">One number with body text</a>
<a href="sms:+3581234567,+3582234567?body=hello%20world">Two numbers with body text</a>
<a href="sms:?body=hello%20world">Body text, no numbers</a>
<div onclick="mwl.loadURL('sms:+3581234567?body=hello%20world')">MWL: Number and body text</div>

Please note that Web App Simulator does not support SMS URI Scheme fully, thus use a real Series 40 device for testing.
