Copy phone numbers


When I get a message or e-mail, I can scroll to, or tap on a phone number to highlight it, and long press the highlighted phone number to display a menu that allows me to Copy Text. However, no text is actually copied to the clipboard - I can't paste the text to a contact, etc.

Anyone else notice this?


Haven't tried it as I don't have any email/sms with a phone number in, I'd be interested if anyone else has this issue though? Have you tried pasting it into a new message on the email/sms app? Also let us know what happens if you copy, then close the email/sms, reopen and paste

The only option I'm given is 'Copy' - the phone number is already highlighted for me.

This works in Gmail - it does not work in Mail.
