I want to use sms:// URL to open the Message app on iPhone with some recipients. I can do it for 1 recipient, but haven't found any way to do for more than 1 recipient.

Any idea ? Thanks.

I've tried a few like :
sms://+123456;+345678
sms://+123456,+345678
sms://+123456 +345678
.....

Basically i tried different separators but they dont work.

Have you considered that it may not be possible?

A 2 second search on Google indicates you should be using MFMessageComposeViewController (http://developer.apple.com/library/ios/#documentation/MessageUI/Reference/MFMessageComposeViewController_class/Reference/Reference.html) which as a recipients property.

Actually i know about this option, but i just want to use the native Message app.
