Now, I know there are 300 million of you Americans and that’s a big market - BUT - we need phone formats that work for other countries! First up should be Australia - where the phone format is landline (XX) xxxx xxxx and mobiles are (04xx) xxx xxx. Please?

this is really becoming…ridiculous. Products like coda.io have all these features, as standard.
European Format please

There are lots of U.S. customers that would like a built-in solution as well—we’re a music company that represents and works with composers, artists, and businesses from all over the world in addition to the U.S. Would LOVE if 35%+ of our contacts table numbers weren’t out-of-format.

The future is already in the past. Please provide some kind of an update so we don’t think we are being ignored.

Hi! Is there any updates on this? It was initially logged in 2016!

Real dissapointing to see that 6 years later the topic of non us phone number is still pending.

May I add my voice to this. It seems ridiculous not to have our (French) phones in a proper format, which may stop our softphone from calling a number in one click by the way.
On the fence about adopting Airtable now, but things like weeks starting only a Sunday and such phone formats may be what will make the solution look amateur in the eyes of the decision makers in spite of my efforts and demos.
If there are technical implications we do not see such as an impact on existing records (but being just a way to display the same infos I fail to see what), please advise and provide a roadmap ?
Thanks!,

Yes +1 for this feature.
The problem is that i cant copy paste same format to other softwares/program.
