You want eg.

<a href="tel:01215555556">phone them</a>

If you want to make a phone number a hyperlink. Obviously in your case replace the phone number with eg {$row['telno']} or whatever. 

If you're just linking to a website then just use the full address starting with http:// like 

<a href="http://g.com/meh">click here</a> (so tel: is only needed for phone numbers. 

mail: is used for email addresses in the same way.
