Sometimes when I get an incoming SMS, I prefer to call back rather than reply by SMS. This should be possible directly from the incoming SMS (e.g. option on long press on the message, or on the sender's name).

You can do it! From the SMS swipe to the left and you will get all the informations from the contact or just the number is the contact is unknown.

From this screen you can call your contact or send an sms.

Why there is not a choice for sending a multimedia msg too? And possibility to copy the phone number to clipboard. I did not find a way to send a multimedia msg to number of received phone call without writing the number on paper or saving the number (which I did not want to do this time).
