I've come to the conlcusion that the mobile joomla template is preventing phone numbers from dailing. I went to a html site I had done and selected the phone number and my phone dialog box to dial came up. I didn't wrap any a tag round that number. My phone saw it as a number and it worked.

for numbers in my mobile joomla template it doesn't work. I have a list of locations on my site and so now they don't have numbers that will dial. it will work if they go to desktop version, but not in the Mobile Joomla version.

I consider this an but and it needs to be fixed.

Detecting of phone numbers and addresses is disabled in template using

<meta name="format-detection" content="telephone=no" />
<meta name="format-detection" content="address=no" /> 

because of a lot of false triggering, mobile browsers transform almost any sequence of numbers into clickable phone number. It's better to wrap phone numbers into <a href="tel:+1234567890">...</a> manually. But if you like, you can make a copy of mobile template and remove above lines from the template (I don't recommend to modify original templates as they will be restored when you update MobileJoomla).

PS. In Flat and Elegance templates this feature is customized in template's settings.
