I’ve been trying to figure out a way to call a phone number from WebDirect on an iPhone.
These are my findings so far:
Open URL "tel://[phone number]"
will return the following error message from your Safari on Mac OS X and iOS;
Could not open window, please disable your browser pop-up blocker and try again.
(mailto: actually returns the same error message)
Would be nice to have support for other URL schemes suchs a tel, skype, facetime, etc.
Dial Phone does not work as documented.
"data:text/html, <a href=\"tel://[phone number]\">" & [phone number] & "</a>"
from a Web Viewer unfortunately also doesn’t work in Safari on iOS. It does however open Skype from Safari on Mac OS X ...
So to make a long story short; I haven’t found a solution yet.
Anybody any ideas ? Or am I fighting windmills here ? ;-)
