How do I hyperlink my phone number so they can click to call from my mobile site?

If this is a Websitebuilder site, then you need to add the number via an embedded HTML. The simple link would look like this.

<p>Book now, call <a href="tel:01234567890">01234 567 890</a></p>

Hi Drew,
Thanks. I put the HTML in along with my phone number and it worked. However, the font size is small and I would like to make it larger. Is there a way to do that? Also, more importantly, about half the people I had test it out on a mobile device (including me) said the hyperlink to call would not work. I don't know why it works for only half the people. It's not an android/iphone thing.  I finally figured out you have to press and hold it for over a second, which most people, including me, would not know to do. I put in some text "press & hold to Call 123-345-7899" but it looks odd and I shouldn't have to do it. BTW, I am using the new WebSite Builder software.

If I just touch it, I get my dialer with the number there and I can hit send. If I press and hold, then I get a menu with several options, including Call or send message. Do you know what happens to the people that don't work?

Text size should be able to be set in the HTML using a font size tag.
<p><font size="100px">Book now, call <a href="tel:01234567890">01234 567 890</a></font></p>
You can change the 100px to any number you like.

Thanks
The font size HTML you sent me works fine.
But I have to hold it down for over a second, then the menu with the options pops up. It sounds like it is working ok on your phone, but not about half of ours.

I'm going to have to check on that some more. I am not yet sure what could cause it, if it is not an Android/Apple thing.
