More than one phone number format?

Originally Said By: Jason Byrnes
  In the property inspector for the phone number spry text field, make sure that:

1) You have set the Type to Phone Number.
2) Select the Custom or US/Canada format
3) Checked the option to validate on Blur
4) Checked the required option
5) checked the Enforce Pattern Option.  

Thank-you, but still a little uncertain in some areas.
1) Are you sure the Type needs to be "Phone Number". Another example i saw the type was TEXT?

2) I don't see where the option to select "Custom/US" is. I can see this reference in the SpryValidationTextField.js, but don't know if changes are needed here?

3) Option to Validate on Blur in ok.
4) Required option is ok.
5) I don't know how to enforce this option.

Below are some code sippets i think are relvantant. Hopefully you may be able to assist me.

Many Thanks,
