    Often I see a phone number on a web page or in an e-mail that I would like to save as a new contact, but when I click on it the only option is to "Call". Does anyone else agree that, absent a copy & paste feature, there should be an option to "Create New Contact" in such a context?

    All I can do now is select the "Call" function and quickly hang up then navigate to the "Recents" list in the Phone application and "Create New Contact" from there.

    This seems to be an interface gaffe on the part of Apple...

    I think you can perhaps click the number to call it and hang up and then save it from recents.
