Format for importing or adding phone numbers in Mexico

Importing contacts with Mexico phone numbers:

Since phone numers in Mexico have a different prefix for mobile and land line numbers VanillaSoft is pre-set to import your numbers correctly.  BEFORE you import your list make sure you choose your dialing country first.  To do this:

  1. Login as an Admin
  2. Select Project
  3. Go to Dialing & Recording
  4. Select Mexico as your Dialing country (This is for dialing inside Mexico)
  5. Save Changes

Now you may import your Mexico phone numbers.  The format should include the prefix, area code and phone number.  Characters will be stripped away so no need to worry about those.  Examples of correct format:


01 (81) 8371-8656

045 (999)5632187

Editing or adding Mexico phone numbers from the Contact Edit page:

When you go to add or edit a phone number there is a check box for "Cell Phone". A check here will automatically insert the 045 (for cell phones). An unchecked box will automatically insert the 01 (for landlines).
