@Juan I mentioned libphonenumber 4 comments above yours. I do know about that library and will eventually be using it.

This is the most likely option we will pursue. But it must meet approval, first.

I agree that the clues to entry must be VISUAL as well as in text.

I added the new proposed layout to the post. I think that may make a difference. We also are looking into omitting the country code and having it auto set from their address country. Is that advisable? We also are looking into making the field free form and storing only the digits. Have to get approval for that, though.

I haven't tracked it. That site is similar to a account profile site and they can only modify what they have, not really "create" a new number like on our main site.

Some PBX (phone) systems in the US offer the caller to enter an extension to be transferred to.

I understand that the digits are the only meaningful parts of the number, we only store the digits, not the dashes or any parenthesis. But it DOES matter to storage on the back end if you must parse the number into different fields. Many users may not understand when asking to submit their full number including country code. Some of our users are really not very computer literate; I know it's sad these days.

I do kind of like this, however.

I explained it in my question. The storage system is an outdated Oracle DB where we also have a desktop application that handles the numbers. We are leaning towards making it fully free form but I disagree with you about the parsing. You can't assume that a user will enter the numbers as a parser would view it and with the plethora of formats, it would be cumbersome to write a parser. Google's libphonenumber looks like the tool we will be using to do the parsing.

Well, I thought the "visual clues" were pretty evident in our layout.
