Question Calling from phone #s within an email

Please Login to Remove!

I am a new BB user (7290) and one of the things that convinced me to try BB out is the feature of scrolling to a phone number embedded in an email and calling it (without having to copy and paste it to the phone dialer). This does not work for me. Email addresses and URLs both are selectable, but not phone numbers. I have upgraded to the latest software and am running with the same model as one of my colleagues.

Is there a feature that needs to be enabled for this to work?

You mean that the menu selection for the link is not there when you highlight the number? Does the number appear with a dashed line underneath it?
