Dialing a message sender

On my old phone if someone SMS'd me and I pressed call it would dial their mobile number, I can't for the life of me get the Storm to do this and so if a person texts me who isn't in my contact list I have to remember the number and manually type it into the phone keypad.


what obvious (undoubtedly) trick am I missing here?

Click on the BB button. There should be an option to call the sender. I cannot recall if it was in the message folder (before you open the message) or once the message is open, but I have done it at some point.

Re: Dialing a message sender

I think that works, too.  What the phone doesn't seem to allow is to then add that phone number into an existing contact or create a new contact with that number.
