When you want to copy-paste a number (however long) from your email, it is always interpreted as a phone number, and gets preceded by “tel:” in the paste buffer.
Working email client.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
- Start email client
- Open an email with a number in it, it gets underlined as a hint it is selectable
- Press and hold the number
- You get a menu with Call / Share / Copy to clipboard, select the last one
- Paste the “number” somewhere, and find that it has had “tel:” tacked in front
When one does “copy to clipboard” you expect the number to be copied as it is, because this is the whole point of copy-paste.
What’s in the clipboard is “tel:” and the number from your email.
This “feature” is very inconvenient, as it makes using “virtuaaliviivakoodi” (54 digits long) in emailed bills very difficult if not nearly impossible to use with mobile banking software. For example, the Danske Bank mobile bank will only accept 54 characters from the paste buffer and truncate the rest, making what you just copied an invalid “virtuaaliviivakoodi”. It might be possible to copy-paste just the digits using the selector tools but it is a very tricky operation compared with the “copy to clipboard” option.
