Was wondering if phone number format matters for Marketing Cloud Journey Builder? I did a test where I put my mobile number and inside the data extension I had data type phone. My number was just basic numbers - and it seemed to have worked, but I also see numbers that have (999)9999999 or +999999999 or 9999999999 and so on

Does MC still accept numbers with parentheses? Also does the number have to have an area code for it to work?
