I think that will entirely depend on their requirements. Besides, I have found that usually for telephonic interview, understanding each other's accents is a problem. You can solve this problem by requesting them to speak slowly (s p a c e out your words) and do the same when you are talking.

hi:
i hope this is not too far off the topic. i had a tel interview with a uk company the other day. because it is an engineering position, so the content of the interview will be not very helpful. it last 1 hour. some questions include:
1) simplify ( x**2 )**3 + y**(2*3)+ ...
2) explain motor failure....
3) ...
it has been 3 months, i have not heard from them again.

Hi,
I think Manish nailed it down correctly. Local accent is very difficult to understand on the phone so concentrate on that everything else are fair. If you are from South Asia, please speak very very slowly. Beside phone is just only the first of the series of interview methods following once you passed it.
Good Lucks,
MCao
