    Ive been searching for this for a few days and Ive got nothing so hopefully someone knows. Is there any way to call a number that's been sent via sms? Ex: My wife sent me a text containing the phone number of a client. On previous phones, that number would be a hyperlink and when I clicked it the dialer would open with that number pre-inserted. It seems on the moment I have to memorize the number, go to the dialer and input it in. This isn't so easy when your driving or doing much of anything.

    Is there any app or setting that allows me to automatically input the number into the dialer? I tried copy and paste but you cant paste into the dialer.

    Thanks

    pretty sure handcent allows you to touch the hyperlink and it will call...someone else will chim in and verify i'm sure. either way, handcent is a great sms app. i really like the quick reponse option.

    Tried Handcent also and nada. Actually handcent started crashing my phone the other day after the update so I had to remove it. Im trying to find the old version of it to put back on.

    What format did they send it to you in? The stock app does hyperlink phone numbers for me.

    Even hyperlinks addresses so I can click them and see them in google maps.

    555 555 5555 doesn't work. 5555555555 does and 555-555-5555 does too.

    Yeah, that's not going to work because there are spaces in between the numbers.
