How can I select a default country code?
In our webapp, in the Settings menu item and the General tab, you will find the option to set a country code as default.
This means: If you enter a phone number without a country code, the code specified here will be used automatically.
You create the number 0123 45678910 in your contacts, i.e. without a specific country code.
- If you have set a German country code as default, i.e. 49, the SMS will be sent to the number
- If you have specified a US country code as default, i.e. +1, the SMS will be sent to the number
- If you have created the number as +49123 45678910, i.e. with a specific country code, the SMS will also be sent to this number, no matter what you have specified as a default country code.
An overview of all country codes can be found here: List of country calling codes (Wikipedia).
