The +1 is understood in Germany and Switzerland, too. However, I'd leave
some kind of visible separators between country and city code as well as
between city code and phone number, e.g.

+1 - 123 - 345 4567 (123 being the city code).


The +1 is understood here (Ireland) and in Britain. The only thing is,
with the hyphens, it looks a bit like some complicated sum. I usually
just leave spaces between,
i.e. +1 123 345 4567.

Hello, oh Techwhirlers --

I'm adding contact info to a document that is going out internationally.
+1-123-345-4567 a form for a United States phone number that will be
understood pretty much everywhere? Do I need to explain that the +1 is a
country code, or is that common knowledge outside the US?
