The "Phone number format" (selection below) in the Client Interface is responsible for the phone number transfer to the Client Interface by the data source. This means that if the client interface receives a phone number (e.g. by searching for a name), this setting determines the format in which the phone number is transmitted.
The data source also converts the phone numbers for the index into the format 0049 using the "phone number conversion". If no conversion is selected, the client interface must supply the phone number in the exact format as it appears in the database so that a contact can be found.
