    Is it possible to add a number from contacts into a text message? I could do it on my voyager but i cant seem to find it on the motorola droid.

    I don't mean how to pick the contact i want to send it to, but paste a number from contacts into my message to send to another person.

    Thanks

    Another option is to download Dialer One from the Market. If you long press on a contact (after searching for the contact T9-style), you can choose "Send Contact" and it will send that contact's info to Handcent or whatever. It does send all info (name, phone numbers, e-mail, address, etc.) but you can just delete what you don't want.
