E72 - open URL from SMS

is it just me, or is it that url's sent to the E72 by SMS can't be clicked on to open?

My E63 could do this but I can't work out how to get my E72 to do it ...

you know, URL's like the ones you get via OVI sent as SMS for installing an app???

Re: E72 - open URL from SMS

When you open a Message.. go to Options and check whether the Automatic Find option is enabled ..

yes, that's what I'd have thought. However when I open the sms the options menus are:

 

Show open apps.

Forward

Delete

Message details

Move to Folder

Font size >

printing options >

Help

Exit

 

have restarted the phone twice and dug through other menus to see if I could get it

Just send a trial message with a random no. written there-in to yourself and then open the received message. There you should be able to see that option ...

Re: E72 - open URL from SMS

very interesting. I did that and automatic find appeared in the menu. Closed that and then opened the other sms and voilla not only could I click on it but automatic find off was now a menu item.

I turned it off and closed and opened that sms but then it was not available!?

Seems that its presence id contingent on the contect of a number being present in the sms

I'm sure that isn't the case with my E63 but I'll need to test that.

Very interesting bug

thanks

Re: E72 - open URL from SMS

Glad to know its solved now.

BTW, its not necessary that a number should be present in the SMS..but the 'Option' is visible only if the SMS has been sent from a proper mobile no. and not a computer generated SMS or from a number assigned for Marketing, etc. ( in this particular case from Nokia and comes from +TD-Nokia
