 As suggested by @boone on
 Slack], i open a ticket for this bug.


 When this field type is selected to let users enter a phone number, and
 this number starts by 0 (like most french phone numbers), the value who is
 shown once the user saved his number doesn't show the zero. Example: enter
 0610919191. Save and you'll see 610919191 on edit screen.  This can let
 the user think he forgot the zero, and he will redo and redo... Weird on a
 preview !

 That said, on the profile View, the number is correct.

 '''Other remark'''

 That field comes also with an incorporated auto-increment counter. On some
 themes, like 2012, it's even difficult to see.

 Seems to me that this field is not like a date field coming with a
 calendar, just a textarea which should contain a numercic data.

 Is this overcomplicated thing necessary ? I fairly sure a user can enter a
 number manually, as he does for his name within a text field, without any
 prebuilt alphabetics, huh ? Less is more. ;-)

 +1 for a specific phone field if not to complicated to buit-in. If not,
 stay basic, a very simple "numeric only" field would be enought.

 The zero disucussion started on Slack is for devs. End users have to use
 the edit preview and to get there a correct information.

 Thanks for attention.
