    Question Phone Number Hyperlinking for International numbers

    Advertisement



    Has anyone had any success in setting up Phone Number Hyperlinking for International numbers? I have an Emergency Contact list that is pushed to our support group, the Internaional Phone Numbers are not Hyperlinked or underlined.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ they can still be highlighted and copy-pasted, I'd imagine, so they can just be put in address book entries. It's an extra step, but I think that would do it.

    Usually the traditional / standard North American 11/10 digit numbers are linked; +1xxxyyyzzzz.

    However, when you want to link a number that is not like that, include the prefix "tel:" (without quotes) followed by the number. The BlackBerry will assume it's a phone number and link it.

    Such as: tel: 1 403 555 1212

    I have International numbers that are 13 and 15 numbers long, can't seem to get the "tel:" to work with them?

    That's odd. I just tested with sending the following message to myself via SMS:

    Tel:+641234567891011121314

    Perhaps the hard space must be eliminated?

    In my browser, that fake number above after the 'tel:+' displays as a phone link for me.

    Actually, now that I look at it, that is the problem you may be encountering. Remove the space between the : and the number.

    Even with just tel:+ , this is recognised as a link, and is menu dialable.
