I am an asst Stake clerk for membership. One of the asst ward clerk for membership contacted me and told me that he's been in contact with CHQ regarding a problem with new records he's received. The phone number dropped the last 2 digits. e.g. xxx-xxx-xx is all that he received. He contacted the sending clerk and was told that he sent the entire number. He then contacted CHQ and was told that they changed the format to take only the first 10 characters. Evidently SLC only wants 10 numbers with nothing else. Can anyone confirm that this has changed?
Different area offices can set different formats for things like phone numbers and addresses.
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

True, but the OP was referring to the state of Washington in the United States, and all of the US is administered the same way in this regard.
So far we have one second-hand report of a phone number being truncated to 10 characters, and at least one report of receiving records with no such problem. And I can also confirm that we have recently received records with phone number consisting of more than 10 characters, with no truncation.
Questions that can benefit the larger community should be asked in a public forum, not a private message.
