* you have area where users input phone numbers in many different formats
* output phone numbers in specific format
* you need to send SMS messages from your app
You can initialize new Phone object with
Phone.new('5125486', '91', '385')
Phone.new(:number => '5125486', :area_code => '91', :country_code => '385')
Parsing is done using
Phone.parse '091/512-5486', :country_code => '385' Phone.parse '(091) 512 5486', :country_code => '385'
It is smart to set default contry code first so you don’t have to provide it as option every time
Phone.default_country_code = '385' Phone.parse '091/512-5486' Phone.parse '(091) 512 5486'
Fow now, Phone works only for Croatian, Slovenian, Bosnian and Serbian phone numbers, but Tomislav is collecting data to support other countries.
