    Plugin to open the phone SMS app

    forestlance777

      I have seen my question several times on various forums, on how to open the device’s default Text app.

      Every time someone asks this, they get replied with a phoneGap plugin on how to have the app they are building, send a text string to a phone number. They never read the question.

      I need to open the phone’s existing SMS/MMS app. I want to pass to it a text string (message to send via sms). I do not want to pass to it, a telephone number.

      The reason I want to open the phone’s existing SMS app is so that my user can select his own contact to send the message to.

      I know my end user will be happy looking up a contact name from their list rather than typing into my app a memorized telephone number.
