Hi guys, In Kitkat when i got a service call the phone number would be in the email. I would touch the phone number and it would transfer it to the dialer. In Lollipop this is not the case. I have not been able to find a setting for this yet. Does any body know?

Thanks

Nothing happens at all. If i double tap it zooms. If i hold it gives me the option to select text and copy it but thats kind of annoying especially when your on the road. Hefty fine here for that.

It's possible it may just be an issue with the app compatibility at the moment. I'm not sure if anyone else is experiencing the same issue. I haven't seen any other similar posts here, anyway.

So i have tried installing a different email program and the problem still persists. If i type a phone number in hangouts it grabs it when tapping. Im guessing the dialer app is not searching for numbers in emails.

Has any body else run into this?

I just did. I read your mail and decided to try it myself. GMail worked fine, but not Inbox. In GMail, the phone number showed up as a link, which I was able to click to invoke the dialler app. In Inbox, the phone number was nothing but a text line. I clicked on it, but nothing happened.
