are you sure you havent messed up by not putting a "+" symbol in front of numbers that begin with 44

ie: 01234 567890 would become +44 1234 567890

thats the only reason i can see why there would ever be 12 digits!

Nah, all numbers are 10 digits...11 If you count the zero, but generally people should always store their numbers with the country code preceded by the + and omit the zero, that way your phone works everywhere for certain....

A 12 or 11 digit phone number does not exist period....
