I think Szadzik is right. It's something to do with the way the number is formatted.
Of course. I have confirmed that a correctly formatted text works. I said that in my previous posts. Yet, James behaves as if it does not work ANYWHERE, where it only does not work where it was not made to work. It is obvious to me, that if someone posts a link in plain text, it will not be recognized as a link. Even the forum here, parses links and makes them into clickable ones automatically. Not everyone and everywhere does that and then it does not work. Do not blame the phone, that a link that is not a link does not work.

Can you click that link above? NO? Why? Because it is not a link, but just plain text. Very, very basics of how everything works.

As a test, here is a phone number that I posted using 'Insert link' option

http://androidforums.com/1-847-555-5555

The same as above, but entered as plain text:

1-847-555-5555

Does either one work for you James?

3rd test that should actually work on the phone

tel:1-847-555-5555
