The standard configuration of Record Validation maps the Phone fields of the Lead, Contact and Account Object to the designated Country fields. We use the Country field value to determine which validation to apply. You can set a default value for the Country field in the Record Validation Setup, or define a Country value while entering a record.

How does Record Validation validate your Phone Number?
Record Validation analyses your (international) phone number value and parses, validates and formats based on your predefined Country value. Format your phone number on-the-fly when a user enters each digit, or validate after the value is entered. It returns a value that is a confirmed valid, formatted phone number.
