Add a 'phone number' field for tasks

ramiak says:

It would be nice to add a phone number field, if the task for example involves calling someone. Right now I put it in the task title, but why is there a url but no phone number? I wish it is true that phones are outdated, but many companies don't think so yet.

If you were using some sort of VoIP system where clicking on a phone number did something, a la an http or mailto link, this would make sense. For most users, I'd think slapping the # in a note or the task title should do the trick, especially now that we can print the notes.

It should be possible to integrate a phone provider like "jajah" with the phone number. Maybe RTM could even profit from phone-calls made by this feature?

I concur on adding a phone field. I use RTM for reminders of calls and it is handy to have a field to specify the phone

I'm also looking forward to this. Other people are looking for phone number fields as well, just spread apart a lot of topics.

If you're impatient you can use the "http://xxxxxxxxxxx.tel.QLNK.net" hack described in the last post here:

But this should be native.

It seems that people in this forum have been asking for tappable phone numbers since 2006 (!). And five years on it's still not done. Would be a good time-saving feature.
