    How do I dial a number off a Web page from the browser on bb10? I tried to do copy and paste old school style, but the phone app doesn't allow paste!
    Much appreciated,
    Aaron

    Unfortunatly we cannot paste that number into the dialer... you have to make a contact and dial from there. For a one-time use it would probably be faster to write it down, LOL.

    Previous BB's allowed pasting into the dialer, i hope it returns in an update.

    I have to agree. The seamless integration between apps and windows in BB is surely missing in this OS. I was hoping they would take OS7.1 and build-up from there, but apparently that doesn't seem to be the case. There are many features like this, which make the BB experience what it is, and I sincerely hope they bring them all back in future updates.

    This does not work if the phone number on the website is not encoded as a hyper link. Try using an android and it will automatically monitor what goes into the clipboard from the browser. GPS option will pop up if your selection is an address, and the dialer option will pop up if a phone number is selected. I have been using BlackBerry for more than a decade, and this is the stuff that disappoints me. Something so simple that cannot be done, and this is suppose to be the "Go" phone.

    To prove my point, try dialing the # from the browser directly from this Web page. http://www.goldenbcontracting.com/ If someone manages to do it. Please post video!

    A work around is to copy the number and paste it into your Web browser. Then you can click to dial.

    This has been a bit of a drag for sure. What I have done to get around this is to copy the number and share it with the remember app and then daily from there. The best part about this is that I can save the number from there if need be. I am getting ready to purpose to my girlfriend so this has been a way for me to save numbers for different place I have been looking up without looking through my call log thing to remember what the number I needed for the last few places I called.

    FYI. Not all phone numbers will be clickable. Usually, the dev will have to format the phone number like...

    <a href="telhone#">phone#</a>

    If the dev does not code the number, the format has to be...

    1-xxx-xxx-xxxx or 1-(xxx)-xxx-xxxx

    So, if the number isn't formatted according to the above, it won't work upon clicking.

    Again...just an FYI.

    -Highlight the number on the webpage
    -Press the address entry area at the bottom of the browser
    -Type in without the quotes: "tel://"
    -Paste the phone number(so it should look something like tel://555-555-5555) and press "Go" on the keyboard
    -Click "Okay" to confirm the call

    Hope that helps.

    Probably has something to do with a Patent that Apple owns. I remember some stink about this in the Android world shortly after the Galaxy Nexus was released.

    Could it be the problem we ate seeing with Web sites seeing the Z10 as a regular browser and not a mobile site? I did some quick comparisons with a coworker's OS7 phone, and where he got a mobile site, the phone numbers worked. And when I tried the same site (with a m.) I saw numbers I could call.

    What I do is just zoom in on the number and then minimize the webpage. This allows me to still see the number on the active frame, so when I'm dialing the number and u forget I just swipe up to see the number in the active frame and continue after. Might work for some people might be easier to do the other methods above.

    That's the answer a lot of the time when people ask why can't I do it like I did it on my iPhone? " it is because Apple patented the process of doing a task a certain way.

    Pretty sure we could do that on our old bb's in emails and on web pages and likely before Apple was doing it. Wish I still had my old bb to check.

    You can. I can do it on my assortment of other phones. Just speculation on my part.

    Too many people here all twiddling thumbs instead of spelling out the upgrade they want.

    I want to be able to move freely from calls to contacts at any stage of the process. I can not imagine that there is a group of blackberry lovers who are letting this slide. Make phoning easier.
