    My BB had a cool feature that I have not found in the Eris yet. It would automatically recognize phone numbers in emails. It turned them into a link. When you clicked it, it would dial the number. Saves you from having to remember it or copy/paste into phone app.

    Anyone found a way to do this?

    The standard software that I am aware of doesn’t support name/number recognize in Emails. Of course you can Long-Press on a Number or Name and it'll Dial and/or Search the Directory.

    Yes. In gmail, if you tap on something that looks like a phone number in a message, though it is not a link, it will highlight and then open the dialer with the phone number entered.

    Try it.
