    I have Sprint Samsung Epic 4g (Android 2.1). Is there any way to configure the phone to recognize phone numbers in email and web pages as click-a-ble to call.

    I'm not sure either how to copy and paste from into the phone ap.

    Android will, in general, recognize phone numbers and addresses in any text field and make them clickable.

    E-mails, text messages, web pages, ect all allow you to click numbers to call or click addresses to navigate.
