Edit phone number in text before dialing?


Feb 5, 2012
If someone sends me a text with a phone number in it and I tap it, the phone asks if I want to call it.

If I tap on call but need to edit the number or add an area code the phone won't let me do it.

I tried long press on the number and copying it & then pasting in the dialed, but I cannot put an area code in front of the number after its been pasted, only after the number.

Anything I can do about this? I know with Android I could edit the number in the dialer anywhere I wanted to, what am missing that I can't do it with iPhone?
