    I need this feature bad, had it on the treo and it was a life saver.

    if you have some text in any applications, website, notes, tasks, calendar details or 3rd party app and the text is a series of numbers that are longer than 6 characters, you should be able to double tap it to call it automatically!

    or at least highlight it and then choose call!

    Strangely enough, I get this in some applications and sites, but not in others.

    Ha? What? Where?

    I tried it in a bunch of places.. what action do you need to do to actually dial?

    In places where it works, it's underlined and blue like any regular link. I can't remember where I saw it, but I know at least one thing showed it like that. I want to say it was in the email app.

    In HTML, whether it's a webpage or an email, it's possible to make a phone number display as a clickable link - but that's done by the author of the page or email.

    Yes, but I know for a fact that I didn't put HTML code in for that, and it appears that way in my outgoing emails.

    It doesn't dial directly but brings you to the dialpad with the number entered in.

    No - I went to my own website and added phone numbers. I could click2dial:

    1-555-222-3333
    555-222-3333
    (555) 222-3333
    555.222.3333

    I couldn't click dial 555-222-WORD

    I'm on my Pre now, the 4 numbers above are clickable. Click once to open the phone application with the number already filled in.
