    How do I enable a tel: link?

    bobm335 Level 1

      I'm trying to make calls from my app.  I'm running phonegap 6.3.3.


      Starting with a clean Hello World app, I added this to index.html:



           <A HREF='tel:+15859999999'>Cal me!</A>



      And added this to config.xml:


      <access origin="tel:*" launch-external="yes" />


      Which I thought would cause the dialer on my phone to open with the number.  However, the link is unresponsive.  I've tried it on Android 6.0.1 and 5.0.1.  Can someone please tell me how to enable this link?
