Copy number from SMS to contacts
Apologies if this has been answered elsewhere but i have tried searching (here and google) but the problem with the forum search is you get and error when searching sms as its only 3 letters!!!
Anyway i lost a couple of contacts numbers so got a friend to text them to me the message was more or less as follows,
"Hi Sharpcroft here are the numbers John Doe XXXXXXXXXX, Jane Doe XXXXXXXXXX"
How the hell do i copy each individual number to a new (or original) contact?? The only option i seem to get is to copy the whole body of text and if i tap or tap and hold the number it opens it up in the dialer app and starts to call the number??
I hope there is a simple answer as coming from Nokia's and Palm Pre i just assumed there would be a "save to contacts" option on a pop-up or similar??

Good question. I sent an SMS message to myself with a number embedded. You're right, the copy option only applies to the entire message. I wish I could copy/paste inside the SMS message whatever I want, but I personally think it's a limitation of the bubble format of the messages. Anyways, here is a screenshot:
This shows the message with the number embedded. See the arrow at the side of the second message?
When you press it, it should send you to a second screen where you can do what you want with that number. Hopefully this answers your question.
