    The best way is to replace the phone number field for a text box and then change "validation" for "numbers" option. If you wish to have specific amount of digits inserted you can also use "input mask" to define how many digits the user must insert:

    Did you choose Numeric under "Validation"? Choosing that option will not permit any characters aside from numbers.

    1. Click on Validation then choose Numeric.


    2. An error will popup when you add text characters.
