The specific telephone plugs in the different countries causing a lot of problems for each traveller. The requirements for a universal telephone plug are almost the same. The most common connector used for a telephone plug is the RJ45 connector. But most of the time this connector is not available on the telephone, there is no spare socket in the hotel room or the telephone cable is just fixed on the phone.
