I am not able to add my pnone numer to my profile. The format I used is +XXYYZZZZZZZZ, where +XX is the country code, YY is the area code and ZZZZZZZZ is my number. After giving a message-Enter valid number-a couple of times, there is another message, something very wrong, try later. Please help me. Thanks in advance.
That field is set to receive US-numbers only. It is not required, you can just leave it blank.
I think it would be a bad idea to add your phone number. You never know what kind of people would call you.
I'm with Cindy and K. You certainly don't want to post your phone number in a public area like this. People gathering information for nefarious purposes might look for phone numbers.
I think the poster means that he or she is trying to update the information for the update my profile page (private info that isn't displayed). You can put your real name, address, phone number, etc. but it is not required and won't show up on your actual profile. I guess it's for HubPage's records.
lol I couldn't imagine putting my private phone number on here.
I once had a reporter 'accidentally' publish my private number in the newspaper as a contact for a political campaign...she knew what she was doing. I had specifically given her the main office number, but no...my private cell somehow got published. It showed up in print and online. I got them to remove the number posted online, but I had to shut off my personal cell for a week.
Never, ever post your number online! lol
