When I get a phone number link (in blue underlined) in a text or app like places and I click on it the phone (D3) tries to find a number in my contacts that is closest to that number. I want the phone to simply dial the number in the link I clicked on like my old (and missed) iPhone 4.
I am not suggesting you do this, only bringing it up for discussion. I have had problems with various facets of my phone, and, going into Manage Apps, then finding the app, then clearing data, cache, defaults, etc. has often solved my problems. I have no idea what clearing any of this for your Dialer might do. I just thought it was worth mentioning.
