A phone number should not really be treated as a number: leading zeroes
are significant, and arithmetic operations are meaningless. It's really

The first character of a phone number can be a '+'. Unlike a conventional numeric context, omitting the '+' if it should be there or adding it if it should not makes a big difference.
