Learn how a telephone number should be written

When written or printed, the 10-digit telephone number should be visually separated by dashes, spaces or periods in accordance with international standards (e.g., 807 123-4567 or 807-123-4567). The area code should not appear in parentheses since this may lead the caller to believe the area code is optional.
