    So, you want a PC to display the phone numbers, but not the iOS devices?

    just need help

    On my website in all browsers online...even safari the phone numbers show up for vendors...but on the ipad and the iphone they do not. Just wondering how to fix:

    The code looks like this:

    Office: (408) 676-1014

    It is just simple text but the numbers don't/won't show up. UGH and help if anyone can.

    Ah, it is a problem in the coding. Your StyleSheets are changing the color of the phone numbers because the iOS devices want to add it to the contact list. I just highlighted and copy/pasted on the iPad and it shows up.

    I dont know the fix for your site, but you may want to make the phone numbers a different style.

    Thanks for helping....I gotta find a fix for this and hopefully it is in the css style sheet. do you know anywhere else to find a developer that might know how to change the css file because thats a one page fix....it seems it should be possible.

    Have you found a fix to this problem? I am in the same boat as you. My wife and I created a site for our business and we cannot view our contact numbers from an ipod touch or iphone.

    I have the same problem in a few sites that I have built. Everything looks fine in all Browsers on main computer, but numbers do not appear in Ipad.

    I also note that Ipad sometimes shows lines between Div Tag's in web site, this is not showing in anything else.

    Fix for iPad iPhone not showing styled phone numbers on sites.

    Here is the solution. Add this inside the head of the document just after the title.
    <meta name = "format-detection" content = "telephone=no">

    but that would also take away the ability for iOS visitors to simply click the number to call it.

    Change the color of the link in your CSS file

    All you need to do to fix this is change the link color for that particular link not showing up. For some reason, even though you global link state is declared, the iPad seems to default the phone number link colors to white.
