I can't help in general but I did notice...

You shouldn't store phone numbers as numbers.
People often include spaces or hyphens or parentheses etc
when entering them, eg:
+44 (0) 1234 567890
(542) 123 4567
And of course you get the alpha numerics:
So strings are the best solution (and they should be 24 characters
long to handle the worst case international standard phone number!)
Who works for the phone company! :-)
