Edit Phone Number

When specifying phone numbers, use the International Number Format. Enter the country code, followed by the local number. Phone numbers should contain only the digits 0123456789. Communicator strips parentheses and additional characters entered. Do not include the international dialing prefix - for example 011 (in the USA) and 00 (Europe, South America).
