Hint: A good distance to a phone number is approximately 10 - 15 cm (4 - 6 inch) from a phone's camera.
2. Focus the camera to the phone number by half-pressing the camera shutter button. After this you may release the button.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you can't focus, the camera is too close.
3. When Point and Call reads the phone number, it appears to the text box in the upper right corner of the screen. Now you can call to that phone number by pressing the call button or by full-pressing the camera button.
