As per Bookshelf, add a '+' in front for international numbers for fields DTYPE_PHONE. Siebel deactivates the US format and any required format can be entered. But when the user enters international number "+3(34)3433444", steps off the record, then one of the parentheses disappears. It displays as "+334)3433444". This also happens for +4 numbers. But for the others it seems to work fine.
