        call extensions don't help, most of the time the ads on a smartphone still shows a regular ad even though you set up call extensions to show just the phone number

        Click to call would increase advertiser spend and bings profits, which in turn Bing could put into marketing its search engine, so advertisers can start to see decent volume, and not consider bing as a tiny part of their media spend. Not sure why bing would be resistant to the idea of making more money. This is a no brainer! Click to Call Now Pls.

        Yes, we need a click to call option for mobile phones. (directly to a phone, not to a website)

        Any idea if this will be available ever? This is one of my favorite campaign types in Google AdWords. It really helps push conversions thru at a better rate than nearly all of my campaigns.

        This is a big opportunity for Bing to make users spend more on Bing, introduce Call Only ads.

        Is this available yet? Need this to stay competitive with the big G...

        Would move 100% of my budget over from Google to Bing if this Call Only was available.

        Call only ads will make Bing money and compete with G.
        I was advertising on Bing but no real call only ads so G is getting several hundred dollars a month.

        Com-on Bing

        Could you not use Call Extensions to the same effect? Create a campaign, create a call extension for that campaign and choose "Show just the phone number" on the mobile format of the call extension, eliminating the website link on mobile ads.

        Then you would decrease your bid amount 100% for desktops & tablets. That would leave you with an ad campaign that only shows on mobile and only shows the call extension (no website link) on the ads it shows.

        Good Afternoon Everyone,

        Positively and absolutely yes please.

        Strict Click to Call functionality on Mobile Devices is a must as we want calls to go to our business, not website clicks in the instance of Mobile Device Targeting.

        Strict Click to Call functionality is available on Google and it would be most appreciated on Bing as well.

        Currently, it fluctuates back and forth between website address displays and Call: (***) ***-****, even when one chooses "Show just the phone number" and sometimes Call: (***) ***-**** does not display at all.

        Many Thanks and Best Wishes,
