We haven't been 100% consistent on phone numbers in the past.
Although most of the listings formats say to leave off the area code, some discussion pages have talked about leaving them in.
This is my main reasoning for always putting the country code in the listing: It's exactly what you would dial into a mobile no matter where you are in the world. I would favor the longest number you can dial from a cellphone, payphone, and a normal phone.

So in cases in the USA/Canada where 10 digit dialing is the norm (which is pretty much every metropolitan area with greater than one million people), what format should we use? --(WT-en) Bletch , (EDT) Well, i live in the Dominican Republic, and we no longer have to write phone numbers as a 7-digit format, because this year a new area code (the actual area code is 809, the new code is 829) will be introduced in an overlay style (809/829)(actually we're in the transition period, when it's still permisive the 7-digit dialing, that ends on August 1st., 2005.), so the number format for calls within the Dominican Republic will be XXX-XXX-XXXX.
