A user encountered an error after copy & pasting a phone number and then attempted to dial.
The error is:
(UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\u2013' in position 52: ordinal not in range(128))
I'm not entirely sure if a paste of the string will go through properly, but here it is:
Output from od -c
0000000 6 0 9 – ** ** 5 8 5 - 8 0 5 1 \n
This was copy/pasted from the contact page of the site she was on.
I already advised to simply type in the number by hand if the problem is encountered in the future, but I thought I'd pass it along in case you might want to code a exception handler for such a scenario.
