Formatting International Phone Numbers


Formatting International Phone Numbers

Sakari recommends using E.164 formatting for all To and From phone numbers communicated to Sakari. This is an internationally-recognized standard phone number format that will help to ensure deliverability of calls and SMS messages across the globe.

We will automatically remove all dashes, spaces and punctuation from any submitted phone numbers. 

 

How does E.164 work?

E.164 phone number formatting entails the following:

  • A + (plus) sign (replacing the International Call Prefix like 011)
  • International Country Calling code
  • Local Area code
  • Local Phone number
