Standardization of POI phone number format

Postby edchuang (retired) » Fri Jan 16, 2009 3:34 pm

Lately there are lots of POI contributions contained useful information such as address and phone number. For address, it is quite straight forward to update, but for phone number, there are a few options and I am not sure whether all will works when using Bluetooth enable gps such as Nuvi760 to make call using the POI phone number.

Which format shall we use?

1. 03-1234567
2. +603-1234567
3. 00603-1234567
4. 031234567
5. +6031234567
6. 006031234567

Maybe we can discuss on this, some of us can test this using various gps device and decide later on by our Sifu to use a standardized POI phone number format for updating POI contributions.
:tq:

The + is for international access so you can call from outside Malaysia as well.
