When a potential employer asks for references, do they want letters or phone numbers?

They want a name, phone number and how you know the person in case they want to contact any of them. For example:
John Smith 555-555-5555 former manager
Jane Smith 555-555-5555 co worker

Usually a list with name, phone number etc. However if you have letters of reference from previous employers, include those as well.
