How To - Disable Phone Number Hyperlinking in the BlackBerry Browser
Article Number: DB-00528

I am using Article Number: DB-00528 for disabling 7 digit Account numbers that are hyperlinked like phone numbers on the Blackberry (example: 7428987), and I mark real phone numbers that must be hyperlinked as <a href="tel:+1-561-951-4147">(561) 951-4147<br /></a>. Real phone numbers are hyperlinked.
The problem is that "Click to Call" stopped working with the error message: "The protocol specified is not supported by the handheld. Please try a different URL."
Device where issue was noted was a real BlackBerry 8700c.
The same issue I can reproduce using BlackBerry Device Simulators 4.2.1, 22.214.171.124, 8700-blue.
How I can disable auto-linking 7-digit account numbers and still be able to make a "Click to Call" for the explicitly marked phone numbers?
