    My question to you:

    How should I write telephone numbers in the Agenda,

    say my friend in Chicago has the following phone number:
    +1 (312) 777-9988.

    Should I write brackets for the area code, hyphens, what is best for the iphone and what is not for it to recognize information.

    At least for me, that's the way I write phone numbers for the US.

    For NYC, I would write:
    +1 (212) 345-1234,

    and for London

    Which is the best, how do you do it ??

    Thank you !!!

    The iPhone should parse is correctly if you use the brackets for the NATNS (North American Telephone Numbering Scheme) same goes for international, however when you recieve a call, it all depends on how the tower and source send out the number. Some towers add data or remove data.
