A website I visit for work uses phone numbers as user IDs. These IDs are clickable, bringing you to a user info page. When I access this website from my ipad and click on the phone numbers I'm being asked if I want to add this number to my contact list. As a result I am unable to access the user info page.


I understand that the ipad styles phone numbers in various applications (apparently Safari included) as links so you can easily add them to your contact list (or on the iPhone, give them a call), but it seems silly that this behavior would take priority over a link that was already styled as a hyperlink by the website designer.


I've done a quick google search and the only discussion I've found on this topic is aimed at website developers and not at changing iPad settings to deactivate this feature. There must be a way!
