As a start, maybe make the whole number a button ?

One tap could highlight the number and bring up buttons
(large and somewhere where they don't conflict with
anything else), for choosing what to do with it, i.e.,
make a call or send an SMS.

This would also help if accuracy is an issue. E.g., if
one taps the wrong number, one could simply try again,
before the phone has done anything undesirable.

Not sure how all this fits with the current style, though.
Last time I tried, about the only think I could figure out
how to do in contacts was to exit ;-)
