[talk-au] Phone numbers

All the numbers I've added include the +61 and drop off the leading zero
from the area code or mobile. This makes the number work from wherever it
is dialed and makes it universally unique.

So +1 to this format when tagging in OSM and noting this in the Australian
Guidelines wiki.

Hi,


On the tagging list it has come up that 'we' should be using international
dialling codes for the phone numbers.


I'm not certain how many OZ mappers would be aware of these ..

and I think this should be documented on the wiki page

Test

How many would know how to call a cell phone number from overseas?


Answer

Drop the leading 0 and prefix with +61

+61 4 xx xxx xxx


Same thing for 'our' local codes 02 becomes +61 2 xxxx xxxx.


I know my phone number additions are all local - no ISD or even regional
codes.


Thoughts?
