Flutter plugin for parsing, formatting and validating international phone numbers


Phone Number for Flutter

PhoneNumber is a Flutter plugin that allows you to parse, validate and format international phone numbers.

The plugin uses the native libraries libphonenumber for Android and PhoneNumberKit pod for iOS.

Library Version
libphonenumber 8.12.32
PhoneNumberKit 3.3.3

Usage

Parsing

Parse a phone number with region prefix.

String springFieldUSASimple="+14175555470";
PhoneNumber phoneNumber = await PhoneNumberUtil().parse(springFieldUSASimple);

Parse a phone number with region prefix and dashes.

String springFieldUSA = '+1-417-555-5470';
PhoneNumber phoneNumber = await PhoneNumberUtil().parse(springFieldUSA);

Parse a phone number string without the region prefix. Region required. Country calling codes can be found here

String springFieldUSASimpleNoRegion = '4175555470';
RegionInfo region = RegionInfo('US', 1);
PhoneNumber phoneNumber = await PhoneNumberUtil().parse(springFieldUSASimpleNoRegion, region: region);

Parsing a valid phone number results in a phone number object:

PhoneNumber{
  e164: +14175555470,
  type: PhoneNumberType.FIXED_LINE_OR_MOBILE,
  international: +1 417-555-5470,
  national: (417) 555-5470,
  countryCode: 1,
  nationalNumber: 4175555470,
  errorCode: null,
}

Validating

Validating a phone number requires both the phone number string and the region country code.

PhoneNumberUtil plugin = PhoneNumberUtil();

String springFieldUSASimpleNoRegion = '4175555470';
RegionInfo region = RegionInfo('US', 1);
bool isValid = await plugin.validate(springFieldUSASimpleNoRegion, region.code);

String springFieldUSASimple="+14175555470";
bool isValid = await plugin.validate(springFieldUSASimple, region.code);

String springFieldUSA = '+1-417-555-5470';
bool isValid = await plugin.validate(springFieldUSA, region.code);

Formatting

Phone numbers can also be formatted for the UI to display the number.

String springFieldUSASimpleNoRegion = '4175555470';
RegionInfo region = RegionInfo('US', 1);
String formatted = await PhoneNumberUtil().format(springFieldUSASimpleNoRegion, region.code); // (417) 555-5470

PhoneNumber will not add the country prefix unless the phone number has the prefix

String springFieldUSASimpleNoRegion = '+14175555470';
RegionInfo region = RegionInfo('US', 1);
String formatted = await PhoneNumberUtil().format(springFieldUSASimpleNoRegion, region.code); // +1 (417) 555-5470

As-you-type formatting

Attach the provided PhoneNumberEditingController to a TextField to format its text as the user type.

There are 3 formatting behavior:

  • PhoneInputBehavior.strict: always format, do not accept non dialable chars.
  • PhoneInputBehavior.cancellable: stop formatting when a separator is removed, do not accept non dialable chars.
  • PhoneInputBehavior.lenient (default): stop formatting when either a non dialable char is inserted or a separator is removed.

See example/lib/autoformat_page.dart for a detailed implementation.

Regions

Fetching regions (country code and prefixes).

List<RegionInfo> regions = await plugin.allSupportedRegions();
// [ RegionInfo { code: IM, prefix: 44 }, RegionInfo { code: LU, prefix: 352 }, ... ]

If you want to display all the flags alongside the regions in your UI region picker, consider having a JSON file instead of using this function. Example JSON file

const List<Map<String, dynamic>> countries = [
  {"name":"Afghanistan","flag":"🇦🇫","code":"AF","dial_code":"+93"},
  {"name":"Åland Islands","flag":"🇦🇽","code":"AX","dial_code":"+358"},
  ...
]

Device Region code

It is possible to fetch the region code from the device. This will give you the two letter country code. (e.g. US, UK, …)

String code = await plugin.carrierRegionCode();
