    Is there anyway to dial a number from within an sms? Pardon my ignorance as I am new to the BB10 platform.

    I have searched the forums but the threads I saw did not conclude or veered off topic.

    I'm running the 10.2.0.429 on a Z30.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the response, but I'm not talking about the sender's number, I'm referring to a number sent within a text. For instance a contact sends a number of a mutual friend to me via sms and I want to dial that mutual friend's number from within the text.

    The number should be highlighted in blue. Just tap the number and off you goooo!

    It is only highlighted in blue when a country code is in the number, like +234xxxxxxxxxx. So much inconsistency in this BB10 implementation and I am not liking it at all...

    Not to worry as NSA is working on automatically reformatting all our messages so that soon you will be automatically connected once you either receive (or optionally open) all of them, ahem, automatically. Doc Neutron

    Sam, if you check my example, there wasn't a country code used. Believe it might be a 10.2.1 feature?

    I have the 10.2.1 and can't call without the country code...
