Calling a Pasted Number

Hi all,

I wanted to call a number that I copied off the internet but when I came to do this I found out that you cant. The way I tried to do it was by going to: Phone (pic of the phone on the bottom) > Dial Pad > then pressing and holding to bring up the paste option but it fails to work.

I feel this is such a small oversight but something, I'd imagine that most people would use. It would be great in BlackBerry and the Devs could add this feature. Or if anyone knows another way of doing it, I would love to hear.

Re: Calling a Pasted Number

Yep, it should be a simple dial or a popup to approve the dialing of the number, when touched and held on the website.


And I believe it has been reported as request to add.
