[maemo-users] How to enter dashes and spaces in Phone numbers? And voip dialing?

1) AFAIK, no setting for this (unless someone creates a small app to allow
addressbook editing with more options :-).
If you import contacts with formatting (dashes and stuff), the formatting is
preserved. You cannot write dashes in the phone number fields though...

2) There was a related discussion in the maemo developers mailing list,
including this kind of reply
As this does not directly answer your question, someone else needs to chime
in with better answer :-)
