    This might sound stupid or I'm missing something, but I noticed on my droid x (running liberty gingerbread) I don't have the ability to tap on a phone number that was either emailed or texted to me and have it automatically dial the number??? When I tap on the number, it brings up the dialer but the dialer has in it the last number that I called? Does anyone know if this is a setting somewhere or a bug in gingerbread?

    Thanks for any help as this is quite annoying!

    I'll have to try the newer version of Liberty, perhaps they fixed the bug then.

    It works just fine on my phone. All the time? There is a stupid way if you have little things stored in your phone. Recovery factory mode.
