Has this every happened to you. A form wants you to enter in your phone number… OK, let’s be honest, there are 20 different ways you can enter in your phone, but as far as a computer is concerned it’s just interested in the numbers.
So that means stripping out the non-numeric characters is trivial….
So why do so many sites do like this stupid site…. make you enter in a phone the way THEY want you.
Please stop punishing users who sometimes have no choice but to use your software.
Did this help you out? It took me a few days to piece together all this information together, I hope this saves you some time (who knows, maybe the future me will be thankful I wrote this down). Let me know your thoughts. firstname.lastname@example.org
