Phone number validation problem (7 posts)

    First of all I really like that plug-in! It's great.
    Secondly, I'm having problem with phone number validation like “US format”. I want the validation with this format like “444-666-7776”. User shouldn’t be able to enter more digits in the phone text field. Like 10 digits for phone number and 2 dashes. I want minimum and maximum 12 digits.
    Right now I am using “Validation regex: /^\d+$/” or “Validation regex: ^[2-9]\d{2}-\d{3}-\d{4}$” for phone validation ( US format “ 444-666-7776” ) but it is not working. Display the error message “Invalid input.”
    Can anyone help me to solve this issue, I will appreciate that.

    The extra field has these settings you can use:
    Validation regex: /\d{3}-\d{3}-\d{4}/
    Regex fail message: Please type your phone number like this xxx-xxx-xxxx

    Hi Mike,

    I've tried the above steps to create a phone validation field in the extra field section but no matter what Regex I enter the form returns the error message and does not submit the contact form.

    I am running the site in question locally with MAMP and using PHP 5.3.6. ANy suggestions on how to troubleshoot this?

    Hi Mike,

    I'm in Brazil (São Paulo) and use your awesome plugin! Here the people use the telephone numbers like this:

    11 7758-5146 or 11 7758 5146 or 11 7758.5146 - I need to let the people write in the camp symbols like: ) ( - . and the keyspace

    How can i do this?
