Phone numbers should probably be stored as a string of digits with no  
punctuation (possibly using 'x' to introduce further digits to be  
dialed after the call completes).  If all numbers include a country  
code, then the '+' is redundant.

Don't conflate storage with validity-checking -- those are two  
different things.
