Unless you know how to wrap the phone number in a GuardedObject using a java.security.Permission that relies on an java.security.cert.X509Certificate
provided by a bunch of stuff that gets deep in md-5, then I would instead ask for the tele number from the user and wrap it with a toHashCode method and only use some or another hash-code method ( there are plenty in the java api - just about all of the java api's ) and do not ever send out the telephone number in any fashion, just use it internally in your app and come upwith some sort of randomizer using the java dot random classes.

Java 2 Platform SE v1.3.1: Class Random

There is a night-mare scenario: What happens if the device is momentarily not in view of the person ? Few people keep their cell device chained to a secure environment. Many of the issues involved in identity-theft are not within scope of a reasonable mind.

Use some internally generateed hashCode(), those can be hardcoded in or placed in persistent storage on all but the most limited of api's.
