Unable to transfer domain due to phone number contact


I cannot transfer a couple of domains cause when the system go through the step 3. Confirm contact info, it asks for my phone number in ITU.E format so, I’ve entered my phone as +506 XXXXXXXX that is the correct one for Costa Rica and the system doesn’t let me continue (it marks the phone option in red color).
I have tried all the possible combinations with my phone number (+506 XX - +506XX - +506,XX , etc) and none of those works. You cannot let it empty neither.

Any advice ?

This thread had the same problem, but nobody posted their solution, or even a picture of the form:

Maybe an @MVP knows the magic format for non-US phone numbers.

I had the same issue. I just added a . after the first digit (creating an INVALID formatted number), to make this pass.


That tip works Shimi. Thank you

The tip Shimi provide works. Is not the correct way but is a workaround

Well, the correct way would be for American programmers to realize that other countries exist beyond the borders of North America :wink:

This is quite a common issue on many sites, many don’t even accept numbers that begin with + - they only want a (555) 123-4567 format, even though they accept orders from everywhere in the world. Further, many times they force you to enter a “Province” or “State”, even though 99% of the world countries don’t have these… I’m used to it :slight_smile:
