Long press menu in call history should have "copy number", which would put the number in the clipboard.

One common use-case for me is to then perhaps paste the number into an sms/email, a webpage, or google for it to see who has called me.

Agree with that! Just recently wanted to save a new contact who called me and missed the long-press "copy number" option.

I have no idea what you are on about saving, you can save any number from your phones call history, if the fast-dial is deactivated you tap it and get an empty contact-card, if not, you can long-press and save to contact which gives the same empty contact-card...

I am also wondering what does the copy mean in this case?

Personally I have been missing the possibility to edit number directly from the history list via long tap menu option, which I posted request in here

Copy like in clipboard?! mmh putting a number into the phone's dialer without actually calling so you may alter it if you had a typo sounds good

i would prefer two additional options for long press in the pulley menu: 1. copy number to existing contact 2. (copy number and) create a new contact-card

I've made a workaround by adding it manually. Unfortunately there's no translation for "Copy" in the voicecall app, so the patch only supports english (you can apply it to any language, but the item will always read "Copy" unless changed manually).

I don't know if I'll have the time to create a patchmanager packet for this in the near future, so if anyone wants to do it feel free to use this as a base (or just copy it). Do make a comment about it below, to prevent that several people doing it unnecessary in parallel.

Wow, this is great! I didn't know it would be so simple and such a small patch!

As Workarround: If "Fast call" (don't know the exakt translation) is disabled, you get to an unsaved contact by selecting an entry. Then you can use pulley menu to save.

But a copy option on long press would be nice even.

That is already implemented, so I'm fine with that. I edited my original question/request to be more specific. I didn't think it could be misunderstood, but I was wrong :)

Only for unsaved numbers. I would like to have it for all numbers.
