    Was out today and called up some numbers for restaurants in the browser.

    I tried to copy the number from the browser so I could paste it into the dialer. I managed to get the number to the clip-board, but then I couldn't paste it into the dialer!!

    I would be very appreciative if anyone had a morsel of advice on how to get around this. I'm using a DSTL1 which only has soft keyboard and I can't get combinations of shift and menu to make it work.

    I just tried it and I could not find a way to paste into the Dialer , However you could always paste the number into a note pad app then click the number which should then Dial. Slightly inconvenient but a suitable work around for now :)

    i found this recently too, ended up trying to remember the number, getting it wrong, checking the number again, and making amendments to the one stored in dialled history :/

    looks like Android 2.0+ has this 'fixed' :)

    How did you do it? I have an HTC Desire and can't seem to figure it out.

    If you hold down your finger over the number a message should appear asking if you want to dial the number or save as a contact etc.

    okay that's in a message. I constantly need to copy numbers from my calendar and still can't paste it into the dialer.
