Everything else is just for user's convenience to protect against some (but not all) typos and does not validate anything. 123 Out-of-country format from US 1 (234) 567-8901 ext.
This is what you do when the number correctness is important.
You'll want to parse the first few digits to determine what the country code is, then act differently based on the country.
The international accounts for an optional initial ' ' and country code. Valid matches would be: You'll have a hard time dealing with international numbers with a single/simple regex, see this post on the difficulties of international (and even north american) phone numbers.
The first comment on this answer about the "Complicator's Gloves" is a good read... I'm not the original author, but I think it's well worth sharing as I found this problem to be very complex and without a concise or widely useful answer.
Although the answer to strip all whitespace is neat, it doesn't really solve the problem that's posed, which is to find a regex. '; my @tests = ( "1-234-567-8901", "1-234-567-8901 x1234", "1-234-567-8901 ext1234", "1 (234) 567-8901", "1.234.567.8901", "1/234/567/8901", "12345678901", "not a phone number" ); foreach my $num (@tests) # # Extract all phone numbers from an arbitrary file.The 555 prefix is still special, but only a small range of numbers are guaranteed to terminate without connection 555-0100 to 555-0199. This is good and all, but it doesn't validate what was entered was actually a phone number. Even if you could write a big, hairy validator that would allow all the different legitimate formats, it would end up allowing pretty much anything even remotely resembling a phone number in the first place.For example, what if the user doesn't enter the requisite 10 digits? In my opinion, the most elegant solution is to validate a minimum length, nothing more. I came up with this: Here's a perl script to test it. I can't understand this: "It's easy to get arround until you remove ^ and $ or else I'm able to get around it using   ".
Since you'd need a regex anyway, you might as well have the regex do all the work. - ( 351) 282 43 50 50 - 90191919908 - 555-8909 - 001 6867684 - 001 6867684x1 - 1 (234) 567-8901 - 1-234-567-8901 x1234 - 1-234-567-8901 ext1234 - 1-234 567.89/01 ext.1234 - 1(234)5678901x1234 - (123)8575973 - (0055)(123)8575973 Can you please re-phrase?
It should be compatible with international numbers and localization formats.
