Problem to call a phone number directly from a web page!

With the OS 4.X on different BlackBerry devices, I can choose phone numbers on web pages and can dial this numbers like a hyperlink.


Using a new OS, like 5.X, 6.X or 7.X the feature to call the numbers like a hyperlink is gone.


At the moment we use for our CRM a web site and all sales and service staff can use the BlackBerry no longer to call directly a number from the side.

All they can do now is to copy the number of the site and paste for calling.


The problem is not our web site, the problem to call a number directly from a web site is on all web sites.


I hope there is a solution for my problem.

Re: Problem to call a phone number directly from a web page!

This forum is for discussion about the Native SDK for the PlayBook and new BB10 phones. Did you intend to ask about support for this feature in BB10, or was your question solely about the BB7 and earlier phones? If so, you can click on "Report Inappropriate Content" and ask a moderator to move it to the correct forum, which is probably this one: http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Java-Development/bd-p/java_dev
