    Ok let me give you the low down on this.

    If you open your slide's browser and type in the addressbar


    it will load 8888888 into your dialer but not dial it.

    however, there are problems. if you include http://
    it will NOT work.

    now that you have the low down, i'll explain what i'm trying to do.

    Im trying to use google docs to create an addressbook with numbers

    I want the numbers to be "clickable".

    I have tried making a hyperlink, but it automatically makes the link "un-clickable" and of course if I include http:// in there, it doesnt work.


    What i'm trying to do is make a link, that when clicked will take you to a page, and that page will redirect you to wtai://wp/mc;XXXXXXXXX.

    After the webpage redirects you, it will close itself.


    Here is a sample spreadsheet:

    A1 A2 A3
    Alex 8881112222 =Hyperlink("","Call Now")

    Now A3 will show "Call Now" in a hyperlink format. When clicked it will take you to some webpage. this webpage should maybe run a script that can somehow take the number from A2 and then redirect itself to this link:


    so does anyone know of a script or way to make this happen this certain way. lol, i know some of you will be like what???? lol

    shame on you people! lol I figured it out!

    to make a clickable link online (webpage, post, blog)

    <a href="wtai://wp/mc;41438182940">043 818 29 40</a>

    A link will show up "043 818 29 40"

    If you click on it, it will load up the dial with that phone number

    Just make sure that the site allows wtai:// in hyperlinks

    This works on blackberry phones and android phones
