Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-33) tel links dont work
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2011 11:43:40 GMT


mcfedr commented on CB-33:

ok, sorry, seems i was a bit quick to report this, proper investigation has found this to
be a more general problem with using tel links, that there doesn't appear to be a way to do
it from javascript.

a regular <a href="tel:123456">call</a> works just fine. 

but neither window.location = "tel:123456" or so one cannot do it from javascript.

so this is less of an issue, and what the quoted plugin solves, I think it would be nice to
have this built into callback and across all platforms, i don't know what this situation is
for other platforms as i have limited access.
