Do you know the right format to show phone numbers?

Last updated by Tiago Araújo [SSW] 4 months ago.See history

Every phone number should include the country code (with the + sign) so people in another country can call/text without having to look for the special numbers to go international. Make sure you always set your mobile number in the correct format.

4XXXXXXXXX

Bad example - Hard to read

(4XX) XXX-XXXX

Bad example - Readable but missing international format

+61 (4XX) XXX-XXX

OK example - International format and readable but brackets/dashes aren't necessary

+61 4XX XXX XXXX

Good example - Nice and clean with spaces

Note:

In Australia, mobile numbers are in the format +61 4XX XXX XXX

In China, mobile numbers are in the format +86 1XX XXXX XXXX
