Hi All,

 

I can't enter a phone number for Call Forwarding.  I always get this error:

 

One of the telephone numbers that you have entered is incorrectly formatted. Please check your numbers and re-enter

 

I've noticed that any phone number field, I get this error.  I've tried every formatting I can think of for entering a phone number.  Any ideas?

Please someone help, I try to update the phone number I am forwarding calls and I get the following message:

 

"One of the telephone numbers that you have entered is incorrectly formatted. Please check your numbers and re-enter"

 
You can only input numbers one say 2015557766 there is no other say the system formats it as (201) 555-7766

It is not working and I need a fix for this ASAP!

YOu are asking peers here.  I don't remember the format they want (I am a sold to Frontier FIOS customer).  I think the they don't want any spaces or dashes, and a 10 digit number.  but check the help on that page.
