Plus (+) character error when Selecting Option By Value

If the Value set in the Select Option By Value keyword, contains a Plus char (+), returns an error:

Unable to select option by value ‘+355’ of object ‘Object Repository/Registration/cbPhonePrefix’ using regular expression (Root cause: java.util.regex.PatternSyntaxException: Dangling meta character ‘+’ near index 0



And for selection boxes like a Phone Number Prefix is needed.
