Question Calling a contact from within an SMS text message

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way of directly calling a contact from within a text message, like, for example, highlighting his number ? At present, I have to dig up his/her name in the contacts list and then place the call.
Thanks in advance.

Yes. Highlight the number and click it.

There is no way I can highlight the number. All I see is the contact's name and I can't highlight it.

Oh, I misunderstood your original post. I thought the number was part of the text message.

Open the message, put the cursor on the name and press the green Call button.

The cursor will NOT go on the name. In the message body, the date and time are highlighted in blue and that's it.

Works on the Bold. I guess the Storm OS behaves differently.

This is how I made it call my contact:
Click on Contact name on top > menu > Select > menu > now you will have option to call that contact.
