Thanks for that.

Just wondering…

Is there any way of copying a phone number from a QuickOffice document, and pasting it into the phone dialler thingy?

I can copy and paste into a note or wherever no problem, but it would be REALLY handy to do it into the phone. In my work, I have a lot of docs with phone numbers in them, and it would be great to do this.

As it is, I have to stop the car, write the number down, (Yair I know… the old memory isn’t too god these days) then punch it in to dial it.

When I try to copy/paste, it just enters a “V”, rather than the number I have copied.

Any ideas?

Hello, I have a European E71. Every other shortcuts work fine, except the one for “Silence”. When I long press “#” (or “j”), it only keeps input # on the phone. Why is that?

Thank you.

When I long press the “#”, I get the following message: “Change outgoing phone line?” My E71 comes from HK.
