Sorry that I forgot mentioning - of course I'm running the current 
version 1.4.1 for Windows from 18th June 2015 ...
This issue didn't occur yet when I started to use Blink around April 
2014, I noticed that behavior earlier this year.

In case a phone number is containing whitespaces on Google, no spaces 
will appear in the phone numbers displayed in the Blink contact details 
when "expanding" the contact by clicking on the inverted '^'.
But as already described in my initial message, for whatever reasons no 
phone number at all will display under the contact name in the contact 
list overview, and Blink will refuse to dial such a number (nothing 
happens, no error message).
