Should have tried it before posting the 'correct' answer as, although pressing Call does bring up the last dialed number, you don't seem to be allowed to edit the number. MW

Hi wjosten, I can't edit at all. If I tap the number displayed on the keypad screen all I get are options to copy or paste. I cant get the cursor to appear anywhere. With normal editing if you tap and hold the mag. bubble comes up and lets you set the insertion point. What are you doing that I am not, please? Regards, MW.

Well, yes, but it's a bit of a fudge.
Having missed dialled and got the 'unobtainable' tone or whatever your service provider does in these circs; End call, Recents, hit the '>' to the left of the mis-dialled number, Create New Contact, find the mis-dialled number under 'mobile', edit the number as required in the normal way, Select All, Copy, Cancel, Keypad, paste edited number into display by tapping and Paste, Call.... Phew! Probably quicker to just start again.
Why you can't just edit the wrong number in the display is beyond me! MW

I am having the same issue regarding the inability to edit a phone number. I recall being able to edit back on my iphone 3GS. I'm guessing this is part of the new ios6. This is most obnoxious when I find a phone number on a website that doesn't have the 1 in front of the number that is needed to call long distance. Basically you end up having to copy the number, pasting it into your web browser, adding the 1, and then copying and pasting into the phone dialer. CRAZY!!!!!!

It's an iPhone the word says it it's a iPHONE !!!!!!
It looks like Apple forgot the original purpose of a phone.
editing phone numbers without the need to store them as a contact should be a basic function and I don't mean changing the last two digits but real editing like putting an country code upfront.
every other phone I had was capable of doing this.
Like Jazzylife said CRAZY !!!!

This is the MOST rediculous aspect of the i"PHONE" .
In the uk, 0800 numbers are free. Unless dialed from a mobile. In order to ring an 0800 number you have remember to dial without the first zero. If copying the number from a web site there is no option to edit out the first zero. It simply doesn't work.
Dialling incorrectly, equally, means deleting every digit up to the error, the re entering. This is not an attribute expected from a "SMART" phone.
Nokia had this feature on a smartphone 20 years ago. In fact, as said above, name a mobile phone that does not have the option to edit a dialled number in the phone screen...?
Come on apple, sort it out please.
Why is there a seperate option at the bottom of the screen for voicemail when press and hold 1 does the same thing? Yet there is no voicemail icon next to digit 1 ?
But the letters next to the number on the keys have no function at all.
Why doesn't press and hold call bring up the recent call list...? Might be sensible answers to these, but it just seems to me the phone on the best phone is not the best phone that ever lived. :)
