If ever I enter a number into an app within Android (4.4.2, Sony Xperia M2), the system seems to interpret it as a phone number. Therefore, if I try to edit that number, the system tries to dial it.
An earlier, unanswered, question suggested that this happens on Google Keep. However, it also happens on the inbuilt Notes app, on Evernote and others, even numbers displayed on websites in the Chrome browser. Therefore, it isn't the app, it must be the OS.
This feature means that keeping notes that contain a number is almost impossible. You can't edit a note without the thing trying to call the number.
I can't find a setting that turns off automatic hyperlinking of numbers. Is there one? Is there a service running that does it? If so I'll uninstall the service.
At the moment this one feature is tempting me to scrap the phone and go back to an iPhone.
