This bundle is a fork of misd-service-development/phone-number-bundle. As this project doesn't look maintained anymore, we decided to create & maintain a fork.

This bundle integrates Google's libphonenumber into your Symfony application through the giggsey/libphonenumber-for-php port.


  1. Use Composer to download the PhoneNumberBundle:
$ composer require odolbeau/phone-number-bundle

if you're using Symfony Flex, that's all you have to do! Otherwise:

  1. Register the bundle in your application:
// app/AppKernel.php

public function registerBundles()
    $bundles = [
        // ...
        new Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\MisdPhoneNumberBundle()

Update from misd/phone-number-bundle

The update from misd/phone-number-bundle to odolbeau/phone-number-bundle should be really easy.

Update your composer.json:

-        "misd/phone-number-bundle": "^1.3",
+        "odolbeau/phone-number-bundle": "^3.0",

Then run composer update misd/phone-number-bundle odolbeau/phone-number-bundle.

If you're using a container parameter or alias defined by misd/phone-number-bundle you can use "odolbeau/phone-number-bundle": "^2.0" until your project is cleaned.



The following services are available:

Service ID (Removed in 3.0) libphonenumber version
libphonenumber\PhoneNumberUtil libphonenumber.phone_number_util
libphonenumber\geocoding\PhoneNumberOfflineGeocoder libphonenumber.phone_number_offline_geocoder >=5.8.8
libphonenumber\ShortNumberInfo libphonenumber.short_number_info >=5.8
libphonenumber\PhoneNumberToCarrierMapper libphonenumber.phone_number_to_carrier_mapper >=5.8.8
libphonenumber\PhoneNumberToTimeZonesMapper libphonenumber.phone_number_to_time_zones_mapper >=5.8.8

To parse a string into a libphonenumber\PhoneNumber object, inject the service and:

    $phoneNumber = $this->phoneNumberUtil->parse($string, PhoneNumberUtil::UNKNOWN_REGION);

Doctrine mapping

Requires doctrine/doctrine-bundle.

To persist libphonenumber\PhoneNumber objects, add the Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Doctrine\DBAL\Types\PhoneNumberType mapping to your application's config:

// app/config.yml

            phone_number: Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Doctrine\DBAL\Types\PhoneNumberType

You can then use the phone_number mapping:

 * @ORM\Column(type="phone_number")
private $phoneNumber;

This creates a varchar(35) column with a Doctrine mapping comment.

Note that if you're putting the phone_number type on an already-existing schema the current values must be converted to the libphonenumber\PhoneNumberFormat::E164 format.

Twig Templating

If any of the form_div_layout, bootstrap_3_*, bootstrap_4_* or bootstrap_5_* layouts are registered in your twig configuration, the bundle will automatically register the template used to render the Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Form\Type form type.


The phone_number_format filter can be used to format a phone number object. A libphonenumber\PhoneNumberFormat constant can be passed as argument to specify in which format the number should be printed.

For example, to format an object called myPhoneNumber in the libphonenumber\PhoneNumberFormat::NATIONAL format:

{{ myPhoneNumber|phone_number_format('NATIONAL') }}

By default phone numbers are formatted in the libphonenumber\PhoneNumberFormat::INTERNATIONAL format.


The phone_number_of_type test can be used to check a phone number against a type: A libphonenumber\PhoneNumberType constant name must be passed to specify to which type a number has to match.

For example, to check if an object called myPhoneNumber is a libphonenumber\PhoneNumberType::MOBILE type:

{% if myPhoneNumber is phone_number_of_type('MOBILE') }} %} ... {% endif %}

Using libphonenumber\PhoneNumber objects in forms

You can use the PhoneNumberType (phone_number for Symfony 2.7) form type to create phone number fields. There are two widgets available.

Single text field

A single text field allows the user to type in the complete phone number. When an international prefix is not entered, the number is assumed to be part of the set default_region. For example:

use libphonenumber\PhoneNumberFormat;
use Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Form\Type\PhoneNumberType;
use Symfony\Component\Form\FormBuilderInterface;

public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options)
    $builder->add('phoneNumber', PhoneNumberType::class, ['default_region' => 'GB', 'format' => PhoneNumberFormat::NATIONAL]);

By default the default_region and format options are PhoneNumberUtil::UNKNOWN_REGION and PhoneNumberFormat::INTERNATIONAL respectively.

Country choice fields

The phone number can be split into a country choice and phone number text fields. This allows the user to choose the relevant country (from a customisable list) and type in the phone number without international dialling.

use libphonenumber\PhoneNumberFormat;
use Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Form\Type\PhoneNumberType;
use Symfony\Component\Form\FormBuilderInterface;

public function buildForm(FormBuilderInterface $builder, array $options)
    $builder->add('phoneNumber', PhoneNumberType::class, [
        'widget' => PhoneNumberType::WIDGET_COUNTRY_CHOICE,
        'country_choices' => ['GB', 'JE', 'FR', 'US'],
        'preferred_country_choices' => ['GB', 'JE']

This produces the preferred choices of 'Jersey' and 'United Kingdom', and regular choices of 'France' and 'United States'.

By default the country_choices is empty, which means all countries are included, as is preferred_country_choices. The option country_placeholder can be specified to create a placeholder option on above the whole list.

The option country_display_type can be specified to change the country dropdown label format. There are two formats available :

display type Result
display_country_full (default) United Kingdom (+44)
display_country_short GB +44

And with the option country_display_emoji_flag set to true (default is false) you can add the emoji flag of the country before the label :

display type Result
display_country_full (default) 🇬🇧 United Kingdom (+44)
display_country_short 🇬🇧 GB +44

Validating phone numbers

ℹ️ Using a Symfony or PHP version that does not support attributes? This bundle also supports validation as annotation. Take a look at the old documentation.

You can use the Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber constraint to make sure that either a libphonenumber\PhoneNumber object or a plain string is a valid phone number. For example:

use Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber as AssertPhoneNumber;

private $phoneNumber;

You can set the default region through the defaultRegion property:

use Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber as AssertPhoneNumber;

 #[AssertPhoneNumber(defaultRegion: 'GB')]
private $phoneNumber;

You can also set default region in the bundle config:

        default_region: GB

You can also define a region dynamically according to the context of the validated object thanks to the "regionPath" property (here according to the user's region):

use Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber as AssertPhoneNumber;

#[AssertPhoneNumber(regionPath: 'countryCode')]
private $phoneNumber;

private $countryCode;

public function getCountryCode()
    return $this->countryCode;

By default any valid phone number will be accepted. You can restrict the type through the type property, recognised values:

  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::ANY (default)
  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::FIXED_LINE
  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::MOBILE
  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::PAGER
  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::PERSONAL_NUMBER
  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::PREMIUM_RATE
  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::SHARED_COST
  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::TOLL_FREE
  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::UAN
  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::VOIP
  • Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber::VOICEMAIL

(Note that libphonenumber cannot always distinguish between mobile and fixed-line numbers (eg in the USA), in which case it will be accepted.)

use Misd\PhoneNumberBundle\Validator\Constraints\PhoneNumber as AssertPhoneNumber;

#[AssertPhoneNumber(type: [AssertPhoneNumber::MOBILE])]
private $mobilePhoneNumber;

#[AssertPhoneNumber(type: [AssertPhoneNumber::FIXED_LINE, AssertPhoneNumber::VOIP])]
private $fixedOrVoipPhoneNumber;


The bundle contains translations for the form field and validation constraints.

In cases where a language uses multiple terms for mobile phones, the generic language locale will use the term 'mobile', while country-specific locales will use the relevant term. So in English, for example, en uses 'mobile', en_US uses 'cell' and en_SG uses 'handphone'.

If your language doesn't yet have translations, feel free to open a pull request to add them in!
