    I recently upgraded to Google Maps 4.4 on my Droid Incredible and I have noticed that the telephone icon is disabled when I click on the results of a search. As a result, I can no longer search for and then call a local business from the Google Maps app. I experience this problem even when searching for local businesses that I know I called when using the prior version of Google Maps on this phone. Is anyone else having this same problem? Is there a fix? I apologize if this topic has already been covered.

    Mine works fine and I'm on 4.4.0

    Edit: I had a lot of problems when I first updated to 4.4.0. I removed it, rebooted, reinstalled, rebooted and everything fixed itself.

    Mine doesn't work as well. The icon is there but grayed out. Stupid question: How do you reboot it?
