Phone Format Default

Is there a way to change the default to one of the other two options instead of FREE FORM when a phone # is not properly formatted?

 

Our database is over 15 years old and has gone through a lot of changes.  A lot of the phone fields have the number as 555.123.4567.  It would be nice to have either (###) ###-#### or (%%%) %%%-%%%% as a default to the three dots.

 

BTW, what's the difference between the ### format and the %%% format?

 

Many thanks.
