Default Dialing phone number from text message

Please Login to Remove!

One of the great features of BB is its ability to recognize phone numbers in text and email messages so that click-to-call is EASY.

One problem I have experienced is if a phone number in a message contains special dialing codes (for example the *67 prefix) then BB does not recognize that the string is a prefix + phone number. So, I cannot simply lick to initiate the call. Is there anywhere is the BB Settings to tell BB how to recognize these codes?

Example: BB has no problem making 123-456-7890 an "active" (underlined) and clickable phone number if in a text message. However, if it looks like this *67123-456-7890 it is treated as any other text so I cannot dial the number.

The goal is to b ale to click and dial the prefix and the number so as to get the benefits of the prefix. (in this case, hide my phone no from caller ID)
