Build ID: 20180517113603

Steps to reproduce:

1) Create a Firefox Sync account
2) Try to connect a second device
3) Change the international prefix number (+XX) with another one.
4) insert the rest of the phone number
5) Click on "send" button.


Actual results:

The form becomes red and the description of the error is: "Invalid phone number"


Expected results:

It should accept phone numbers from countries different from the one identified by the IP address.
It should send a message to the phone number inserted.
Summary: Firefox Sync doesn't give the opportunity to change the international prefix number while connecting a smartphone as sync devices → Firefox Sync doesn't give the opportunity to change the international prefix number while connecting a smartphone to sync devices

Alex, do we deliberately restrict to numbers from the geolocation of the IP as a UX or security measure? I don't recall the details of why it is this way.

No, we do it because it was the easiest to implement w/o trying to iterate through the list of countries to find a possible match. It was the easiest path forward to getting the feature shipped.
