When I try to enter a phone number into the mobile phone or work phone field in the contacts it automatically transforms the number from 0735128618 into the format (073) 512-8618 is there a way to avoid this?? I only want it in plain number format so it may be used on my cell phone....

Insert a comma before inserting your telephone number in outlook.  Then when you tab out of that field, hit cancel on the formatting confirmation.
