Default formatting data

I have table with fields 'phone' and 'fax'.
The data in these fields is in different formats like xxx-xxx-xxxx or xxx.xxx.xxxx or xxxxxxxxxx. I need to change the format of all data to one format.
How can I do that ? Can it be done thru SQL ?

Since it is a one time job, do it with several update queries that you run by hand.
