    Unfortunately no, it is not possible to define a minimum number of characters for input fields.

    I think you should make the field required. That will at least ensure they enter something.

    Other than that I can't think of any other way. However, I think forcing users to enter exact digits may not be a good idea. What they can do is to enter random number and that would be worse. At least when they do not enter something you would know how many correct phone numbers you have.
