You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
SOFTWARE VERSION: PR1.0 (2009.42.11)
(Settings > General > About product)
EXACT STEPS LEADING TO PROBLEM:
Receive an sms from someone and you feel like calling him.
An option to call that number that sent you the message would be good to have
in the menu.
Menu only has Clear Conversation.
This is actually the same as bug 6152 - there is a new "Open contact card"
option in the net major update from the main menu, plus currently you can
always click the icon of that person to get there in 1.2009.42-11.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 6152 ***
#6152 is about the call log screen, this is about the sms messaging view and
lack of ability to call the phone number that sms'ed you. so reopening.

There was a bug for that, too. Sorry.
If it's no duplicate then it's just fixed internally.
A future public update released with the year/week later than this internal
build version will include the fix. (This is not always already the next public

what build number has this fixed?
I must admit that I don't know if the fix is already included in today's
2.2009.51-1 update release or not. Checking and reporting back is welcome!
Ok now there is an open contact card, and you can click on the avatar icon for
the person to get the contact card.
However there is no way of knowing the phone number that sms'ed you from a
contact that has multiple numbers and hence call them on that number.
From the call log, bug 6152 was fixed and when you select contact it shows you
just the number that called and offers you to call back or sms.
Setting explicit PR1.2 milestone (so it's clearer in which public release the
fix will be available to users).
Sorry for the bugmail noise (you can filter on this message).

In PR1.2 the number from which the SMS was sent is highlighted.
