I think that the screen dump below is fairly clear:

Python 2.7.2 (v2.7.2:8527427914a2, Jun 11 2011, 15:22:34)

>>> import urlparse
>>> x = "tel:+31-641044153"
>>> urlparse.urlparse(x)
ParseResult(scheme='tel', netloc='', path='+31-641044153', params='', query='', fragment='')
>>> y = "tel:+31641044153"
>>> urlparse.urlparse(y)
ParseResult(scheme='', netloc='', path='tel:+31641044153', params='', query='', fragment='')

It seems that, when the phone number does not have any separator character, the parsing goes wrong (separators are not required per RFC 3966)

urlparse doesn’t actually implement generic parsing rules according to the most recent RFCs; it has hard-coded registries of supported schemes.  tel is not currently supported.  That said, it’s strange that the parsing differs in your two examples.

Here's a possible patch.

The problem is that urlsplit (in Lib/urllib/ tries to convert the part after the : (in this case +31-641044153 and +31641044153) to int to see if it's a port number.  This doesn't work with +31-641044153, but it does with +31-641044153.
In the patch I'm assuming that the port number can only contain ascii digits (no leading '+/-', no spaces, no non-ascii digits) and checking for it explicitly, rather than using int() in a try/except.

RFC 3986 [0] defines the port as
   port          = *DIGIT
and part of the "authority" [1] as
   authority     = [ userinfo "@" ] host [ ":" port ]
   userinfo      = *( unreserved / pct-encoded / sub-delims / ":" )
   host          = IP-literal / IPv4address / reg-name
   port          = *DIGIT
so my assumption should be correct.

Hi Ezio,

The patch is fine and the check is correct. I was thinking if by removing int() based verification are we missing out anything on port number check. But looks like we wont as the int() previously is done to find the proper scheme and url part for the applicable cases.

In addition to changes in the patch, I think, it would helpful to add 'tel' to uses_netloc in the classification at the top of the module.

How so?  The tel scheme does not use a netloc.

According to RFC 1808 [0], the netloc must follow "//", so this doesn't seem to apply to 'tel' URIs.

For the record, urlparse still doesn't handle bare "tel" URIs such as "tel:1234":

>>> parse.urlparse("tel:1234")
ParseResult(scheme='', netloc='', path='tel:1234', params='', query='', fragment='')

This is not terribly important since these URLs are not RFC 3966-compliant (a tel URI must have either a global number starting with "+" - e.g. "tel:+1234" - or a local number with a phone-context parameter - e.g. "tel:1234;"). Yet, there actual telecom systems producing such non-compliant URIs, so they might be nice to support too.
