This operation is a composite of PhoneAppend and BusinessPhoneAppend. CompositePhoneAppend provides the convenience for developers to code to one operation and is able to append phone numbers for business and residential contacts A parameter “IsBusiness” allows the client to specify whether the contact is a business or not. If left blank, the service can make the determination on its own, however, this increases the response time from the request.
CompositePhoneAppend makes use of additional name parsing logic when the IsBusiness parameter is not provided a value of True or False. This additional logic adds an increase in response time due to name-based logic that is performed on the inputs provided. It is recommended to specify a value for the IsBusiness parameter when used in applications that are time sensitive.
