Best practices

Send all numbers in E.164 format. Although E.164 format is not required, it is the best way to send a number to the system, especially if user data can contain numbers from different countries.
Make sure you set the correct Default Country Code in the Phone Call Settings section on the General Settings screen. This specifies what country is the default for user-entered phone numbers. This also is used to interpret phone numbers that are not in E.164 format.
If the number contains any special control characters that must be dialed, such as , (comma) ; (semicolon) * (asterisk) or # (pound sign), the characters must be part of the extension. This is especially important for numbers that connect to a conference bridge.
