in reply to phone number parsing refuses to work
This may be "off topic", but are these real data you've posted here? If so, bad form. I don't think the folks whose information appears here would appreciate it at all. I never allow customers' data to escape my network if they include information about specific companies or people, even if it's information that could be found in any phone book. In the future, you should take a few minutes to create dummy data for any examples you want to include in your posts.
