  • Hi PM16,

    Sounds like the system treat your number as Phone numbers.

    However I cannot reproduce it on Windows Store App, are you working for Windows Phone? (I don't have Windows Phone test environment off hand, I will test it when back to office)

  • Hi PM16,

    I still cannot repro the issue on Windows Phone by the code you provided.

    I may need more information so that I can give some suggestions.
