    Phone Number Format

    Daniel Nashed  18 September 2009 11:22:35

    Now that I am a addicted iPhone user for a while and I am involved in a Cisco Call-Manager deployment project I noticed that many people still use a very odd format for their phone numbers.
    Almost everyone is using the +country code notation but many still add a (0) behind the country code and before the prefix for the town.

    Example: +49 2103 123456 would be a correct phone number which can be dialed.
    If you specify +49 (0) 2103 123456 the number cannot be dialed automatically by a mobile device, Notes live text etc ...

    I still get many emails with the embedded "(0)". IMHO everyone knows how to dail national and international numbers and the zero is more confusing that it helps anyway.

    What do you think about it?
