Import External Phone number into Teams

Please I need your help on this issue.

We would like to import external phone number in to MS Teams. 

I wanted to obtain this via the GAL contacts.

Although they arrive into GAL Outlook, these contacts cannot be seen in Teams phone.

Now it shows by default busy/free, we do not want to show titles or location, only the name of the booker.

    Hi @Iniobong Nkanga

    According to your description, do you mean you want to add phone numbers to Teams users and let other user can see the phone number in contact list?

    If so,please contact with your Teams admin and they could edit the contact information and add the phone number for each users in Office 365 admin center. For the details about how to complete it, you could refer to:
