Hello @BobW97 ,

 

From our article on formatting numbers and dates for contact imports:

Accepted Formats:

+11231231234   +1 123-123-1234
(123) 123-1234   +1 123-123-1234
1 (123) 123-1234  00 1 123-123 1234
+1 (123) 123-1234  

 

Important: At this time, SMS through Constant Contact isn’t available to use with phone numbers outside the US and Puerto Rico, and they won’t be imported.
