Usage

library(dialr)

# Parse a character phone number vector
x <- c(0, 0123, "0404 753 123", "61410123817", "+12015550123")
x <- phone(x, "AU")

is_parsed(x)    # Was the phone number successfully parsed?
#> [1] FALSE  TRUE  TRUE  TRUE  TRUE
is_valid(x)     # Is the phone number valid?
#> [1] FALSE FALSE  TRUE  TRUE  TRUE
is_possible(x)  # Is the phone number possible?
#> [1] FALSE FALSE  TRUE  TRUE  TRUE
get_region(x)   # What region (ISO country code) is the phone number from?
#> [1] NA   NA   "AU" "AU" "US"
get_type(x)     # Is the phone number a fixed line, mobile etc.
#> [1] NA                     "UNKNOWN"              "MOBILE"              
#> [4] "MOBILE"               "FIXED_LINE_OR_MOBILE"
