    whenever i have to write down a number while im on a call, i use the in call keypad for noting it down. But the problem is i cannot copy the number to clipboard while in call or save it. Also as Soon as the call finishes, the number i noted down is gone forever. no way to retrieve it back. i cant save it when call finishes. i dont understand giving a useless feature like this when u cant do anything! anyone agree? anyone with a solution?

    but if we just have to take a screenshot then what's the point. many regular users dont know how to take a screenshot. what is in store for them? I'm really looking forward to fix for this in update 1 of WP 8.1

    we have plenty of note apps in the WP store.
    just press the windows key and switch to one of them.

    I don't think this "feature" will ever been enabled.

    A solution: Open OneNote while on the call (put the call on speaker or use a headset, Bluetooth or earbud), and jot the information down in it.

    This is something I have noticed with A LOT of smartphone users. They don't realize that while on a call, they can now jump out of the "phone" and run other apps while on a call. Be it Windows Phone, Android, or iOS. It seems they all remember how in the early days of the iPhone, once you were on a call, you were stuck there and you couldn't do anything else but talk to someone.

    Sadly, I still forget it sometimes, and usually grab a pen and paper when I'm on a call to write down notes. :(

    what's your point?
    are you suggesting that instead of being helpful by showing the plethora of notetaking apps in the store we should just throw our hands up and say "yea whatever." ? that's really stupid because it's not helping Sood in anyway.
    try to solve problems instead of just giving up.
    also what's up with the ":D" ? you seem to be happy that people are having issues.

    The keypad works in automated calls just like any other phone "press 1 for yes, 2 for no..." or to dial an extension when connected "if you know your party's extension please dial it now otherwise..." I do not believe it is intended for taking notes. Open an app while in call;multitasking.

    Hi James,
    what's your point?///
    Just Saying my Opinion on replys.

    are you suggesting that instead of being helpful by showing the plethora of note taking apps in the store we should just throw our hands up and say "yea whatever." ? that's really stupid because it's not helping Sood in anyway.
    try to solve problems instead of just giving up.///

    I am not saying don't say alternatives, i know there are multiple alternatives like saving phone number directly to Phonebook and one note as you/others said. I think thread author also know the alternatives(may be i am wrong). Why you people gives alternatives instead of discussing on the actual point. Dont we discuss on the missing things? Without giving the copy or saving option what is the need of KBoard while in call. Not a right point to Discuss?

    also what's up with the ":D" ? you seem to be happy that people are having issues.///
    Absolutely not right buddy. :D this i am using regularly in chatting. So used, will try to not use this :)

    I'm actually surprised that he thinks the in-call keypad is useless. it's very useful for entering voicemail passwords and for entering options on those automated call machines you get when you call corporations. you know, the "press 1 for English" stuff. without the keypad you can't get pass it.
